Shop with Sara: Last Minute Back To School Savings at Target

Sara Conrad from SarandipitySaves.com shows you that being cheap can be oh-so chic with fortuitous frugal discoveries.

It's getting darned close to that time again...the time when the scent of freshly sharpened pencils wafts through the air and the sounds of "chaaa-ching!" are echoing in your mind.

Luckily with back to school right around the corner, we have a bunch of great deals lining up for the taking! Each week in the month of August I'll be doing a column specifically aimed at helping you drudge up those dusty arithmetic skills to pinch pennies and save big at the register!

This week I was able to squeeze in some last minute deals at Target. Just hurry...most of these sales will expire on August 4, 2012.

Remember at Target you're allowed to "stack" coupons which means you can use one manufacturer coupon and one Target coupon per item. When you can match both types of coupons to an item on sale, you're guaranteed some crazy savings!

Now let's go forth and score an A+ in savings!
