If you follow The Mom Creative on Facebook, you know that this month is an awesome month for deals at Target.
Christmas went 90% off this weekend (there may or may not be anything left at your store today) and many toys are currently marked down 50% off (they will likely be 70% off on Thursday).
Target coupons also reset at the beginning of the month, including a couple good ones for Rubbermaid TakeAlongs and Easy Find Lids. Now is a great time to buy Rubbermaid because you can use them for transporting food to football parties, etc. + get organized for the new year.
I stocked up on some Christmas clearance + Rubbermaids last time I went to Target.
On Saturday, we went to our friends' Leila and Al's house to have dinner, watch football (go Packers!) and enjoy community together.
Leila is expecting baby #4, so I said I would bring yummy bread and salad for the chicken cacciatore pasta dinner she planned to make+ dessert. I printed the coupons from Target's website and picked up some Easy Find Lids at Target to transport everything.
I have two sets of the square Easy Find Lids and we use them every day in our kitchen, so I was happy the coupons were available to get some bigger ones too. (Bonus, you can stack the Target coupon + this Rubbermaid coupon to save even more.)
I made an italian salad in the long horizontal Rubbermaid and put these peppermint patty brownies in the smaller large container. Both made for easy transport and serving.
Sometimes I can get hung-up on presentation and serving in the perfect dishes, but honestly, Rubbermaids make it easy – and friends don't care about things like the perfect bowls, you know? 🙂
When I got to Leila's house, we giggled because she had a square Easy Lids sitting on the table with carrots and cucumbers cut for easy kid snacking. She said “those are my favorite Rubbermaids!”
Do you use Rubbermaid containers for transporting food? Have you found any great deals at Target lately?
