Teaching The Target Technique
March 31, 2009

No...not this kind of Target, sillies! (Growing up I had a Green Giant alarm clock that went "Ho, Ho, Ho!" when I had to wake up in the morning.)

Lesson for the Day! 

 

Embrace the Target Technique!

After my last post of showing you how I paid less than $6 for all of that swag (7 cans of shaving cream, eye drops, orange juice, etc.) A lot of folks have been asking me where to get these coupons, and if you’re not good at organizing what you can do.

Basically, I’m not organized either.  Even though I have a Couponizer, I don’t always use it, and I can’t spend all that much time couponing.  One thing that’s quick and easy to do, is go to this site: http://sites.target.com/site/en/supertarget/page.jsp?title=coupons_specials and print out Target coupons.  You can usually get things like these fruit snacks this week, for FREE.

The best part of Target printable coupons, is you can print out as many as you like.  There's no limit like there is with some printable manufact. coupons.

Then, (for you advanced savers, you!) COMBINE a coupon from the paper (manufacturer’s coupon) with the Target coupon on the same item. That’s how I got the Pledge wood spray last week for FREE and made money! 

Of course, Target doesn’t think everyone will be so savvy to go print out coupons ahead of time.  But really, it takes 5 seconds.  (I just printed two out, and Kris Ketz was hovering over the printer, waiting for his important documents to print, and I just blurted out “I’m printing fruit snacks coupons!  Very important!”  But I’m not sure if he thought it was that funny.  Hehehe…)

Okay, off to finish my story on Frugal Cleaning products and then to KCI to pick up a Very Important Person in my life. Hooray!

Until tomorrow,

Dion 🙂

6 Bucks For All Of THIS!
March 28, 2009

This is possibly enough shaving gel to last an entire year...maybe two!

This is possibly enough shaving gel to last an entire year...maybe two!

After Crystal and I went to the Boston Market down the street for our BOGO meals, I shopped the Target to stock up on food and supplies before the big snow today. Let’s break it down!

1. First up, those 7 cans of Skintimate shaving gel.  These were a fluke.  Regular price, cut down to I think $2.14.  Just lying there, on the shelf, the holy grail.  A stack of 7 high-valued $1.50 off coupons!  Time to stock up….64-cents each.

2. Kashi meal.  Regular price, $3.49.  Had a free coupon which I signed up for at the Kashi website final price= FREE.

3. Kashi TLC bars. Regular price $2.53.  Used printable coupon for $2.00 one package. Final price= 53-cents.

4. Campbells soup. Used Target coupon for 50-cents off, so final price, 25-cents.

5. Tropicana organge juice.  Sale price, $2.50.  Used Target coupon for 50-cents off in addition to $1.00 printable coupon. Final price, about 50-cents.

6. Eye drops– sample size, usually 99-cents, used $1 off coupon.  Final- FREE.

Ta-da!  With tax, we’re talking less than 6-bucks!  Are you singing that song yet…”this is how we do it”!!!

Chatting it Up Before The Storm
March 27, 2009

What a horrifying picture!  Oh well, it gets the point across-- I'm chating with YOU guys online!

What a horrifying picture! Oh well, it gets the point across-- I'm chating with YOU guys online!

First off, a *huge* thank you for the overwhelming response to my Organic Delivery story that aired last night at 10pm.  The calls, emails and questions just keep coming in.  All morning, from the minute I got off the air at 9am, I’ve been chatting with you live at KMBC.com and there’s some great questions out there.  Here’s some:

Q: Where do I sign up?

A: https://kc.doortodoororganics.com/ is the local website, or you can email Lucinda Clark, at info@clarksorganicmarket.com

Q: Can I customize the boxes?

A: YES!  In fact, you can do it online, or you can talk to Lucinda about it and tweak each box, according to your family’s needs and tastes.

Q: Does Lucinda deliver anything else?

A: Fruits, veggies, herbs, and soon they’re starting up with organic meats and dairy!

Q: Does she deliver to apartment complexes?

A: YES!  If you live in a gated community, make sure she can get access or if she needs  a code to get in.

Q: How do you pay?  Monthly?  Weekly?

A: It depends on what you like.  You cna pay via credit/debit card on the website, or you can drop your check into your cooler each time she visits your home.

Okay, my fingers hurt from typing, gotta run!  Since we’re expecting a LOT of snow tomorrow , I’m working dayside. 

Cheers and Many Thanks Everybody,

Whole Paycheck? Nope! Organic Home Delivery!
March 26, 2009

When I lived in a big city, sans vehicle, you’d either roll a cart down the street to the supermarket, take a taxi, or have  groceries it delivered. 

Me with an organic delivery box. I ate an Asian pear from this box.  it's a cross between an apple and a pear. Sidenote:  get better Blackberry with better camera!!!

The first option was never a good idea in rain or snow, or if you wanted to look cool and not homeless.  Taking a taxi meant paying 10-bucks to the driver, plus tip.  Delivery, out of the question.  The food was not only was it expensive, but the fruits were often bruised by the time they arrived at your home.

 

Here in the Metro, when I learned about an organic produce delivery service, I was skeptical.  But the more I learned about how it works, the more it made sense.  It saves time, but it turns out, you could save about HALF off your Whole Foods organic prices. 

 

Tonight at 10pm, I’ve got a special report all about organic delivery.  It’s one of the most fun stories I’ve ever covered, (partially thanks to Lucinda, my interview subject…more on her later!) and honestly, it’s such a good value for people who eat lots of fruits and vegetables, even my promotions person signed up for the service while he was shooting my promo!

 

After you see the story and if you have questions, I’ll be chatting online at KMBC.com from 9-10am Friday morning.  Hope to see you there!
