How To Save At Target Using Target coupons & Cartwheel

Target is my happy place. I just love me some Target shopping, especially alone without the kids… simply heaven. I know many mamas who also find a solo Target shopping trip to be their bliss-of-the-week. Oh Target, how we love thee…

A friend of mine yesterday told me about her fabulous shopping trip to Target yesterday, she got super cute clothes for her, her adorable toddler as well as home decor items.  Over $100 later I asked if she used any Target coupons or Cartwheel savings since there are Apparel and Home Decor coupons available.  She had no idea what I was talking about, hence the inspiration for this post :)

On top of Target being all things amazing, did you know you can save some serious cash at Target in addition to their everyday low prices/sales?  While there are coupons you get from the Sunday paper, I am talking about saving you can get without newspaper inserts… coupons you can get from Targets website, mobile coupons from Target, and additional saving using Targets Cartwheel.
