Overflow in the Bathroom is not *Always* Bad

Target,you had me at hello. How do I love thee? Let me count the razors, diapers, wipes, birthday gifts, cookies and trail mix that I brought home for only $14.
Seriously, my bathroom cabinets are almost in overflow with razors, toothpaste, toothbrushes & deodorant. I love it! I love that I don't even have to think about it when I empty a tube of toothpaste .... just open the bottom drawer on the left and take your pick. There you will also find your choice of deodorant and toothbrushes. Bottom drawer on the right houses extra shaving gels and lotions. Top drawer on the right makes a lovely spot of all the extra makeup and skin care products I have aquired. Under the sink you will find atleast 6 unopened razors ... no more expensive refills for me! I think that I much prefer Target's razor deal this week. Buying a Gillete Fusion & a Venus Embrace Spa Kit (it included a travel bag & full size shaving gel) for a total of $10.14 after coupons landed me a $10 gift card! Better than CVS's bucks back for the Gillette this week.
Bi_lo, you too are a winner in my eyes. Last night I spent $63, a little more than I was hoping for but not too bad all in all. Here is what I bought at Bi-Lo for really just a small amount.

2 DiGiorno Ultimate Pizzas
1 Lipton Lemon Tea (1.5 L) FREE
1 Garlic Knots FREE
1 Pepperidge Farm Peppermint Cake FREE
1 TGI Friday's Steak Quesadillas FREE
1 Trix Cereal
2 Lawry's Lemon Pepper Marinade
5 Little Debbie Snack Cake Boxes
2 64oz Bottles Juicy Juice
2 Packs Juicy Juice Boxes
1 Package of Spagetti
2 Cattlemen's BBQ Sauce
3 Packages of Toastee Tarts (earned 1 gas token)
2 Southern Home 3 Liters (earned 1 milk token)
1 Jell-o Pudding
2 Yoplait 4 packs
1 Southern Home OJ
2 Southern Home Gallon Milk (1 Gallon was free using milk tokens & earned 2 milk tokens)
2 Mayfield Ice Cream 1/2 gallons (yumm .. caramel cheesecake & banana pudding)
2 Southern Home Hashbrowns (earned 1 milk token)
1 Turkey Sausage
1 Canteloup
3 1/2 lbs bananans
1/2 lbs Butterball Oven Roasted Turkey
$25 BP Gas Card (FREE for cashing in previously earned gas tokens)

And I am half-way through another free gallon of milk!!

Also while I was out last night I ran into WalMart and picked up a few more things; Chocolate Honey Bunches of Oats , pickles, green beans & index tabs!

I don't normally spend this much in groceries but when Super Bi-Lo was opening they sent out a coupon book with free items & $5 off $25 coupons. Its been great to fill my cabinets with so little out of pocket and now I will only need to make small trips for things that don't last long like bread & milk!
