So the cashier was totally thrown off by the 50% off coupons. It looks like she took 50% off of the Duplo set twice instead of taking 50% off of the Duplo set and the Squinkies. Doing the math I came out paying $1 less than I should have. She also for some reason double deducted two $3 coupons and a $1 coupon. I didn't notice this until I got home and will not be making a special trip back to tell them they undercharged me as I rarely go back when they overcharge me or don't ring in one of my coupons. I don't understand how she could have messed up but she did not seem too keen on me using coupons at all and when she saw the stack of coupons her attitude immediately cooled. Guess what? You are a cashier at Target- your store accepts coupons- get over it. Instead of getting huffy with coupons why don't you pay attention so you don't screw stuff up?

Most of the toys are for Easter as well as the fruit snacks jelly beans and squeezable applesauce. Some of the jelly beans are for bribing my son to learn his letters. The boy has no interest in such things so we play a game where I hold up letter flashcards and if he knows the letter he gets a jelly bean. It is working because he is improving each day and now can identify 16 letters whereas last week he only knew a few. After that, onto the numbers!
