Five Tips for Shopping at Target

Happy Hump day! If you're like me and you find yourself in Target once a week or a couple of times a month. these simple tips you will find helpful. 

1. If you plan your shopping trips, you can always goto the Target website to print coupons prior to your trip. You can even take the ease out of shopping if you use the match ups that are offered from various sites. My favorite matchup and sale sites are Hip2save and Living Rich with Coupons

2. Cartwheel app  is a free app you can download to your phone. You can use this app in addition to any coupons you print off at and you can also still receive the 5% back if you're a  Redcard holder. I love this app because I feel less guilty about not clipping coupons. I typically type in the item I'm interested in purchasing or I'll scan the items barcode. 

3. Bring your own bags to save some coins. I'm sure a lot of the blogger have tons of bags if you attend blogger events. Keep the bags in your car, and try to remember to return the bags once your done unloading your groceries, especially for those unplanned trips to Target. 

4. If you're a frugal shopper and you see an item on Clearance always, always scan the item to see if the price is lower. Honestly, during my last shopping trip I scored a $100 8 pc comforter set for $30. the price displayed $50. (which is 50% off, I was able to purchase the item 70% off.) My store typically does not mark items down to 90% off unless it's seasonal items. If your store does... let me j/k no I'm not.

5. Did you know that you can setup a checking Redcard account? Yes, it's possible... Not sure of the entire process. However, I believe you link the card to your checking account and you still will save 5% (trust me it adds up)

Bonus Tips: 

My local Target typically puts clearance items at the end caps of each aisle. However, don't just depend on that. I've found item's 70% off in their normal spot. With that being said, if you need/want something check their normal spot to see if it's on clearance. 

Not all stores put items on clearance at the same time. I'm not sure of the mythology of each store. However, if I see something that I really like and it's on clearance at one store 30% off. If I'm passing by another store. I'll stop to see if the item is any cheaper. 

Do you have any tips that are not mentioned?
