Frugal Challenge Update and Target Deals

Today was a great day for me at Target. If you need kids clothes they had some great mark downs and dog and cat treats were very cheap or free. Here's what I bought:
3 Crayola Bath paints 3@2.48=7.44 ( not a need but a good item to keep my active two yr old busy with in the tub)
2 Toddler pants 2.00 & 2.78=4.78
2 Toddler Swt. Shirts 2.78 x 2= 5.56
3 Crunch & Clean cat snacks 3x1.49=4.47- (3) 1.50 coupons=FREE
3 Crunch & Clean Dog Treats 3x2.49=7.47- (3) 2.00 coupons=1.47 for all three
Total=19.25 plus 1.78 tax for a total of 21.03 for all that. Good buys for sure.

I do love to use coupons but only ever have 3 or 4 of a coupon at the most per week. I order one paper and others give me theirs or I use my rewards from the drug stores to buy a paper if I feel coupons are worth it that week. I feel satisfied to get 3 or 4 of an item free or cheap and leave the rest for others. Plus, how would I store it all? As it is, I have to be creative now. A 50s house was not built with lots of storage.

As for other things, I did go out for a long needed lunch with old friends. 6.99 plus tax with my coupon at Soup Plantation. I love that place.

Dinner has been clean out the freezer for the last couple of days. I hate throwing out food so I just start pulling things out and dinner can be some odd combos but the kids actually like it. Will continue to cook out of one of my freezers as it is due for a deep clean in there and I have to get it as empty as possible.
