Target Trip - Dr. Seuss and Free Makeup

Today was the annual Dr. Seuss Read Across America event at Target. We went last year when Noah was a couple weeks old - 

and here they are just one year later (sorry for the blurry picture).

Once again we had a great time listening to some classic Seuss books and eating popcorn. The treat bags were awesome this year. There were toys (bouncy ball and squishy lizard), candy, a granola bar, juice, pencils and even a coupon for $2 off a $10 book purchase! The best part was the Starbucks lady handing out hot chocolate with whipped cream to the parents. Superb job, Target!

After getting all sugared up at 9:30 in the morning, I cruised around and picked up a few goodies with coupons. All of the makeup on clearance went 70% off this morning so I rummaged through my coupon booklet and pulled out all of the makeup coupons and looked around for a good deal. And deals I found.

  1. Seeing your Target goodies is almost as fun as getting them myself! How do you hear about the different Target events?

  2. Hey LR!
    LOL - I'm glad you like reading about the goodies! I hear about the events mostly from the Target FB page and also from other bloggers. Money Saving Mom and Thrifty and Thriving are my favorite coupon/saving blogs.
