This is my first time couponing seriously. I paid $1.74 for the 8 products at Target. Here’s how I did it:

4 suave gold professionals shampoo; each @ $2.99
4 colgate toothpaste;
3 @ $2.47 and 1 @ $2.97

Used cartwheel offer on suave,
And 2, $3 off 2 suave gold coupons,
And 3, $2 off 1 colgate coupons (wish I had had one more with me)

Subtotal: $6.74
Pay with $5 gift card from previous trip (I do it this way as a preference.)
Pay $1.74, receive $5 gift card.

Total cost: $1.74, or just under $0.22 each.

I used swag bucks to score a free $5 gift card to target, which I used to pay the $1.74 (after the first gift card).
Total cost if using swag bucks: free
