Saved 58%- not too bad considering all of the full priced stuff I bought.

I really wanted to get in on the Healthy Choice deal but because my store is in the middle of remodeling they barely had any Healthy Choice meals. I might go to the other Target (and when I say might I mean it will most likely never happen).

I wanted to buy natural peanut butter with no added sugar for my kids and was surprised to find that the Smuckers, which only has peanuts and a little salt in it, was cheaper than the other brands. I hope they like it.

I am going to return the socks because I found cheaper socks at Old Navy online. I got six pairs of way better quality socks for $4.50 shipped- can't beat that!

As you can see, my husband was with me and he added a bunch of stuff to the cart that he wanted. We spent more than I would have if I went by myself but I suppose my husband deserves to be able to pick out food he likes- even if it is a $1.99 can of Progresso soup (yikes!). He also let me know that he hates the pancake mix I bought awhile ago (I got it for .50 a box) and he does not like homemade pancakes. He only likes Bisquick. Bisquick is full of junk but if it will make him stop whining I will have it on hand. We will just use it for Sunday morning breakfasts and I will continue to make the kids wholesome pancakes for during the week.
