  1. I love the deals you’re getting, but I’m getting frustrated with my local Target. They had no Simple Pleasures chocolates on the shelves, and only two of the small Stayfree packs on the entire shelf so I had to buy a big pack. They don’t carry the small eyedrops or small packs of antihistamines, so I missed out on those deals too. I’m going back tomorrow to try for the toothpaste/toothbrush deal which I skipped on Tuesday’s trip because the offer was worded differently on the shelf (the toothbrushes were supposed to be brand name and not Up & Up, which I’ll contest since the flier says any 2-packs). I’ve been following your blog for several Weiss now, and it’s like this every week.

    1. Hi Kari,
      That sounds very frustrating! I too occasionally have problems with things not being in-stock, but since I visit Target on a weekly basis, if something isn’t it stock (and its not a sale price) I know I can always pick it up the next week or two.

  2. I absolutely love your blog! How do I receive the Smartsource insert and the P & G insert? I want to start getting all these deals!


    1. Hi Courtney,
      Thanks for the kind words! The SmartSource and P&G inserts come in the Sunday paper. You can have the Sunday paper delivered to your home or just pick up a copy at any of your local stores.
      I find the dollar store is a great place to pick one up, because it’s only $1 there.
