Steal: Target's 50% off sale

Granted by next week their Christmas stuff should be down to 90% but this was still a great steal!

Location: Kennewick Target
Item: Scotch Gift Wrap Cutter
Original price: $4.99
Clearance price: $2.49
Coupon: $2 off
Final price: 49 cents! (plus tax)

I spend TWO HOURS looking for it while I was shopping. It was the very last one I could find and it was actually in the office supplies area instead of mini-seasonal or seasonal. I was disappointed since I had three more $2 off coupons plus a half dozen $1 off coupons but I'll take the one.

I also picked up Scotch Magic Tape (three pack) for $1.49 as well as lots of Glade and Febreze holiday fragrances for around 49 cents to $1.25 (each) after coupons. Total savings: $61.72, total spent $112.98.

I really didn't buy that much holiday stuff but rather household cleaning supplies since the kids are home and it's a few days before New Years. I'm superstitious - house must be clean, clean before the 30th for us to have good luck. Dirty house = rotten luck.

Where to get coupons

BEST PLACE: The Sunday newspaper!

In stores:

Blinkies – Found on various store aisles these little machines spit out coupons as you pull them out. Most blinkies have little lights that blink hence the name.

Catalinas – Receipt-like coupons printed at the register. Not all stores have Catalinas (such as WinCo). These are typically NOT printed on the back of the register receipt.

Hang/Wine Tags – Found around the neck of a bottle with a little piece of string or rubber band.

Peelies – Coupons found on certain products that peel away from the product.

Tearpads – Coupons on a tear away pad. Typically found in a display and not directly on the product.

Other ways:

Home mailers - sign up for products online or even contact a company to either complain or complement their products. Click here for a blog with over 200 links to companies that will mail you coupons!

Internet coupons - There are many places online that you can print coupons from. See links below for printable online coupons.

Magazines – Pretty much all magazines will have coupons in it. Better Homes & Gardens, Sunset, Parenting, Working Mother are a few. The BEST magazine with coupons is All You magazine.
