Deals and Bargains Galore!!!!

I admit it...I am a shopaholic. But at least I have the good sense to only buy things when they are on sale with an awesome coupon! And 90% of the time, I limit myself to things I absolutely need.

So in the mail a few days ago I got a mystery coupon from Kohl's. Had to peel it open to see my discount: 15, 20 or 30% off your entire purchase. Lucky was 30%!!

I went today and got some really great deals. Everything I bought was already on sale. And Kohl's lets you use coupons on everything in the store! Hubby needed a new dress shirt and tie, so he picked those out. My son needed pants for fall/winter. He outgrew all of his from last year. So I grabbed him two pairs of jeans, a pair of khakis and some loungy type pants. And also a couple hooded sweatshirts. I browsed the shoe department and got my son a pair of shoes, so he has something other than sneakers to wear. And I found a fab pair of black boots for me :) I needed a new pair of slippers and a new purse and also some sports bras. I browsed the jewelry department and I am such a sucker for cute necklaces and earring sets. And they were on sale for $10 plus the extra 30% off!!!!! But I told myself "no"....I really didn't need them. And then when I was all cashed out, I received $40 in Kohl's cash to use during the last week of September, I think. If you're not familiar with Kohl's cash...basically, it's like a $40 gift minimum purchase...use it on anything I want in the store!! :)

But my shopping addiction isn't even limited to clothes and shoes...I even love food shopping. I'm sure I'm in the minority on that one! I just love buying things an coming home and filling my pantry! It looks so nice when it's fully stocked!! And I love having lots of different foods to eat! Hate when it's toward the end of the week and there's nothing left that's any good!

**Edited to add...had to go back the next day cause I got the wrong color tie for hubby. And he saw their suits were on sale....for $100, jacket and pants. Plus the 30% off (cause I got to keep my coupon and reuse it!! How awesome is that???) Hubby has needed a new suit for years!


  1. well who doesn't love a good bargain!!

  2. That sounds like such an awesome shopping session! :)

  3. It must be so fun to go clothes shopping with you. I haven't gone in ages, I'm waiting to lose the baby fat first. It's my reward, lol

  4. You're so funny - I Kohl's shopped yesterday online at lunchtime - with a 30% coupon. About 1/2 hour after I completed the order, my Kohl's cash came via email. Woot woot!! Another $50 to spend AND - I know I have a standard 15% coupon around somewhere.... LOL

    Have a great weekend!

  5. I got my Kohl"s peel sticker too! But, when I went to get Hubby his birthday gifts I was informed that it started the next day. :-( I don't live 'in town' so it isn' so simple to just 'go back'.

    But, I wanna' earn some Kohl's cash too. Maybe I'll hit the jewelry for some blue and brown stuff. ;-) Oh, and I need something with some greens.

    I'm usually super tight, but every once in awhile we deserve a little splurge. I also LOVE couponing or groceries and toiletries, etc. The savings is like gambling to me. [It is sickening if I ever have to actually pay full price for something! Even the kids know, "Mama, can I have 'xyz' when you get a coupon for it?" LOL!]

  6. Thanks for stopping by everyone!!

    LOL@ Farmer's Wife!! I usually buy store brands unless I have a coupon!! And I almost never buy clothes or shoes or anything like that without some kind of a coupon!!

  7. Good for you! I love shopping sprees :) I have a friend who refuses to buy anything from anywhere except Kohls!
