Received $5 gift card for purchasing 10 Smart Ones meals

The Smart Ones meals ended up being .79 each after the sale, coupons and taking the gift card into account. I bought all one flavor because it was the only one that was $1.89 and that didn't have milk in it. Having forzen meals has been a lifesaver for me as they are quick to make and I don't have much time right now to be making myself food to eat.

I bought three of the Flintstones vitamins because I thought there may be a $5 gift card promo going on but I guess it's not in my area. Oh well, I paid $2.59 each for them which seems pretty good, especially since my kids hate the Target brand chewables.

I looked at the infamous toy clearance and did not buy anything (except for the two little dinosaur squishy toys). I have toys leftover from the last clearance and don't want to bring anymore crap into my house. I am going to be very particular from now on about what kind of toys I buy; no more throwing tons of crap into my cart because its 70% off. My kids have so much junk as it is, I don;t need to be adding more junk just because it's cheap. So, I'm sorry Target toy clearance- I am so over you and you multitude of crap that my kids and I don't need.
