Total Spent: $42.13 Cost Before Coupons: $192.38
I should have saved $5 more in coupons, but I forgot to give my extra coupons to the cashier (yes, it’s true that I’m not perfect).
Did you know that you can get free item coupons by contacting companies? It’s true! Companies want you to try their products. You can contact them for almost any reason, and they will usually send you some great coupons, including coupons for free items. So where do you start? Cindi on the forums gave a great list of 171 places to contact for coupons here. That’s a great place to start, but I also like to contact my favorite organic companies for coupons. Recently I went to several events and was able to collect a lot of free item coupons from companies. So along with the weekly Target deals, I picked up a lot of free products.
Here’s what I got today:
25 Kashi Snacks (five free with promo)
-20 $1/1 coupons that Susan from Organic Deals and Coupons sent me (check ebay for some)

6 Kashi Heart to Heart Cereal $2.88

Also used $15 in gift cards from a previous deal. Target offers gift card deals quite frequently.
Just because you don’t have the same coupons that I do, doesn’t mean you can’t get them! Give it a shot and start contacting these companies! And check out all the rest of the Target deals for the week here.
