My Personal One Week Challenge

Last Friday I made a quick trip to Target for cat food. I had just received the coupons I traded, and I decided to look for the Chef Michael's that would be free with coupons. I Grabbed a couple bags of cat food and a few of the Chef Michael's.

I was pleasantly surprised to find that the BOGO can of Chef Michael's wet food coupon rang up for the price of the dry food bag. Combined with the $3 Chef Michael's Bag mfg. c/o and the Target $1.50 off Chef Michael's Dry food, and Target BOGO can Chef Michael's it created a huge overage. With this overage I was able to also get the cat food for free. I decided when I got home that I would challenge myself to see how well I could work this deal. I originally was only going to shop at Target, but on Friday I realized that I was still about $30 from my $100 total so I made a stop at CVS. All in all it made for a very successful week.

My goal was to spend less than $100 in one week, how much I could get for that money and what I would save by doing so.
