Today was a day of retail shopping. I wish I could say it was all for me, but it was mostly for the kiddos…in particular my daughter. The hubby and I decided that we would each take a child and get them clothes and shoes. I personally can’t stand shopping in person. I can do without the traffic, the crowds, all of it. So this morning after heading out early for the grocery shopping, I came home fixed breakfast, printed out retail coupons and waited forever for him to wake up. He was holding me up from shopping. Finally he’s up and off me and Bri go out to the stores.
The plan was to hit up a few stores. The plan went awry because we were in Kohl’s for a very long time. But boy oh boy did I get some deals. Earlier in the week I got an email from Kohl’s about 20% off a $100 purchase or 15% off any purchase. I figured I would get the 15% off because I planned on spending, but didn’t think I would spend that much. I thought wrong. I spent $202 after tax. But I saved $418.98!!! I saved a total of 69%. A few things were on clearance. A few things I would not have purchased if Bri wasn’t with me. But overall I did awesome. Figured saving that much money was worth it’s own post! Check out the savings:
