    This was the last Target shopping trip for the week...really, it was! I stopped by on my way home from work on Friday night. I had to grab some juice & butter...and thought it would be so nice to use the ovrage from other items to pay for my juice & butter. I couldn't help myself.

    The Goods:

    (2) Welch's White Grape Juice

    (1) Mott's Apple Sauce

    (2) lbs of Markey Pantry (Target brand) butter

    (10) General Mills cereal bowls

    (3) lbs of bananas

    (3) Johnson & Johnson cotton swabs

    (6) Skittles

    (1) Archer Farms bread

    Total Paid: $0.00 (NOTHING. NADA. ZILCH.)

    Ok...so the register actually said 22¢, but after searching for a couple of dimes in my purse, the nice lady behind me offered a quarter and said, "Honey, you deserve this after all those coupons."

    I gratefully accepted. I know, I know...I have no pride. I took a quarter from a perfect stranger. I will pay it forward, I promise!!
