I went to Target this morning and found quite a bit of food that was on clearance...combined with coupons you can find some great deals.
When looking through Target, always be on the lookout for red CLEARANCE tags that are placed on store shelves. Also look for the red and white price tag stickers that will tell the new lower price. You might also want to price scan items that are marked clearance...they will sometimes ring up for much less than the advertised price.
Healthy Choice Cafe Steamers $1.24
-use coupon for $1.00 off Healthy Choice Cafe Steamers (found in this month's All You magazine)
Final Price: $0.24
TGI Friday's Skillet Meals $3.24
Stouffer's Easy Express Skillet Meals $1.98
Market Pantry Fish Sticks (30 ct) $1.34
Buitoni Frozen Meal for 2 $3.00+ (I can't remember the exact price. I believe it was between $3.00 and $3.50)
-use coupon for $1.50 off any Buitoni Frozen Meal for 2 (found in 5/1 SmartSource insert)
Final Price: Around $2.00
I also noticed clearance stickers on Lean Cuisine Meals, Kid Cuisine Meals, El Monterey Frozen Meals but I didn't have a chance to check all the prices.
There were also clearance stickers on several different types of chocolate.
Lindt Chocolate $1.96

If you have a chance, it might be a good day to walk through Target and look for Clearance items. I would suggest taking your coupons and trying to match up clearance items with coupons so you can double up on your savings.
I always like to keep several quick/easy frozen meals in my freezer to help on the days when we have a lot scheduled. They are really fast to make, quick to clean up, and taste good...and the price is a LOT better than pulling through a drive through and picking up food for our family.
Keep in mind, that the Target I shop at is pretty small and doesn't have a large variety of grocery/frozen food items. If you live in a larger city that has a Super Target you might be able to find some really great deals!!
