Are you a Target shopper? And, are you a dollar squeezer like me? I also shop at some of Target’s competitors, but it’s not fun. When I am at Target, I am in a happy, spendy mood.

Target makes it easy to wander the aisles and end up with lots of stuff in that red cart.

I found clearance markdowns, coupons, text offers, free APPs, insider tips and hacks to save money both in Target stores and at Target.com.
