Saturday and Sunday Shopping

Saturday evening, Jeff and I went to the mall to JcPenney's and Bath & Body Works.  We did excellent with coupons at both locations.

At JcPenney's, Ashlyn got four new outfits for $6.99 out of pocket!  We had a coupon for $10 off of $25 and a $10 reward coupon from the previous month when we bought the curtains for our bedroom.  Her outfits were also all from the clearance racks making it an even better deal!  JcPenney's also sent us another $10 off $10 coupon and Jeff picked up a clearanced shirt for $15 that he got for $5 plus taxes.

Bath & Body Works was running their soaps on sale.  The special was either 5 for $15 or 7 for $20.  They sent me an email for $10 off $30 so I was able to purchase another item that I put back for a gift.  My mom started buying us these soaps after we moved to our house and we have really started liking them.  Regular price is $5.50 each if they are not on sale, so it was a great time to stock up.  Since I was already thinking about spending $20, I loved the idea of getting something for around $10 free due to the $10 off $30 coupon!

Today, Jeff and I went to Staples, Target, and Kroger after church.  We were primarily shopping the sales with coupons.  At Target, they had Similac Soy Formula on sale for $21.00 each for a 1.37 lb container.  These are normally $23.49 each.  We bought four with $5.00 off coupons making each one $16.  Similac recently sent a sample in the mail containing four $5.00 off checks toward the purchase of Similac.  There were no restrictions regarding using them with other discounts.  The only listed fine print was the item had to cost more than the check, which they did.  Overall, we paid $11.00 each before the Target 5% discount.

At Kroger, we went for a few sale items.  A few items were not listed the same as the ad and they were either incorrect or due to the ad being marked for a different store.  We decided not to worry about it and check possibly the other store based on the discount.  We spent $30.63 today and saved $23.00 or 42%.

Here's the break down of everything Jeff and I purchased today at Kroger. Items in red are the coupons and Kroger still triples coupons that are 35 cents (or less) to a $1.00 and doubles coupons that are 40-50 cents up to a maximum of $1.00.
