You're the Winner!

.  .  . that's right,  Little Miss Southern , you're the winner of my very first giveaway!  One Target gift card is coming to a mailbox near you.  (Actually, can you post your email in a comment and I'll contact you to get your address. Thanks.)  Thanks to everyone to posted a comment and/or became a new follower during the giveaway!  ***I have official photos to show my sister drawing the winning name from a bowl (I cut out names for everyone to ensure you all got the appropriate amount of entries) and will post them as soon as I find my camera cord!***

UPDATE 1/21/10
Here are the photos!  Sorry for the delay.

(She really got into it.) 
More good news is that I just went to Target to pick up the gift card and they are having an awesome sale right now! I really want to get a new comforter set and Target has aisle after aisle of them 50-75% off! Yay!  I actually went to Target today to try out some of my coupons.  I've recently been turned on to cutting and printing coupons thanks to the Coupon Mom's segment on the Today Show and this blog, "Maven of Savin."

So I went to Target armed with all of my coupons and I endeded up spending $45.  I realized that just because I HAVE coupons doesn't mean I HAVE to buy everything. (I even bought three jars of Peter Pan Peanut Butter.  They were on sale for $1.78 and I had a coupon for $1 off of three. I better make some cookies or something, because I really don't need peanut butter!)

What kind of savvy shopping tips do you have/use?

Congrats Little Miss Southern!

  1. Ohhhhhh fantastic!! Thank you SO MUCH!!! I could REALLY use some Target $ right now! Planning a wedding is KILLING my checkbook!

  2. Congrats Little Miss Southern! I am terrible with coupons b/c I can never collect the ones that I actually need and end up buying stuff that we don't need with the coupons I have haha. I am better with trying to create meals out of what is on sale at the store.

  3. Congrats Little Miss Southern! :)
