dead (wo)man shopping

So today was a HUGE day of shopping for me because I have been sort of snowed-in for 3 days + I had lots of Qs about to expire.

Old Navy is having 40% extra off their clearance. I got a boatload of stuff there. Spent $82, saved $238. My little boy is now clothed until the age of 2 I think. hahaha

I went to TJ Maxx to try to find a good deal on a moses basket. They didn't have any, but they were having a huge store-wide clearance sale, so I found a few goodies. I got a Melissa and Doug puzzle for Penny for $4, a pair of Izod baby shoes for $3, and a Beatrix Potter sticker story book for $3 (saving this for Easter basket).

I hit up Toys R Us for the great deal on Babyganics wipes I read about on My Frugal Adventures today. I bought 6 of the 120 ct. packs @ clearance price of $2.98 ea. B1G1 = $8.94 (that's about .01 per wipe!). I bought 10 of the 30 ct. packs @ clearance price of .98 ea. B1G1 = $4.90 (that comes out to less than .02 per wipe). I also bought 2 packs of Take n' Toss straw cups (Penny's preferred drinking vessel these days) @ $3.49 ea B1G1 50% off + I used a rewards coupon from my email that was B1G1 50% off any meal accessories. So I ended up paying $1.61 per pack. In addition, I bought the Graco Room Full of Fun (stroller, bouncer, etc. for baby dolls) that was on sale for $19.99 (orig. $34.99) and used the $10 in rewards certificates that I had, making it $9.99. I plan on giving this to Penny after the baby is born so she can take care of her babies in some of the same ways I am. I think that will help her adjust.
I paid $30.08 for everything, and saved $41.46.

I went to Target to see if there was anything left in the 75% off toy clearance. There really wasn't. It had been totally ambushed. I did find an adorable tent for Penny that looks like a tree stump (not pictured b/c I left it in the car trunk) for $20, orig. $30. That's not the best deal ever, but I've had my eye on this for a while, so I jumped. Other than that I got a few grocery deals and a couple of clearance shirts for the boy (I know I'm nuts). The clothes cost $8.28 (sorry, dunno orig. prices right now). Here's my grocery deals:
*Juicy Juice 8 pk. of juice boxes @ $1.97 - this is the reg. price, but Targ is the cheapest place to get them, so I always do.
*2 Pace salsas @ $2.99 ea. - used .50/1 MFQ and .50/2 Targ Q = $2.49 ea. (not sure if this is that great of a price or not...)
*Newman's Own Organic sauce @ $1.89 (price cut) - I always buy Newman's at Targ b/c it is the lowest price all the time as well. I usually have a Q, but didn't this time. However I was pretty psyched that the Organic was on price cut to be the same price as non-O.
*3 Kraft shredded cheese @ 2.04 ea. - used .75/1 Targ Q and $1/2 Targ Q = $1.46 ea.
*2 Kashi bars @ $2.65 ea. - used $1/2 Targ Q = $2.15 ea.
*1 World's Best Cat Litter @ $7.49 - will submit rebate = FREE
