Today’s shopping trip was a little better. Keeping in mind my promise of not buying things I don’t need and haven’t already decided to get, I thought carefully about each item and came away with some good deals.
I noticed that more items were at 25% off and up than when I did my first shopping trip. A lot more was at just 10% that first day. So the deals are getting better.
A Kmart employee had dropped off coupons at work, and I grabbed one the last time I was there. It offered and extra 10% off the total purchase amount, so that netted me extra savings.
These were my savings:
$4.00 – Mega Bloks First Builders 20-piece set in a handy tote ($9.99, paid $5.99)
$2.00 – Journal ($7.99, paid $5.99)
$2.50 – 2 journals ($4.99 each, paid $3.74 each)
$4.80 – Sports bras, 2-pack ($11.99, paid $7.19 for both)
$4.41 – Leggings ($10.98, paid $6.58)
$3.00 – Cozy (super soft!) ankle socks, 3 pair ($1.99 each, paid $0.99 each)
$0.60 – 3 ounce mini candles, 2 ($1.00 each, paid $0.70 each)
$0.40 – Xtra laundry detergent ($3.99, paid $3.59)
$0.56 – Shredded Mozzarella cheese ($2.79, paid $2.23)
$0.40 – Tortilla chips ($2.00, paid $1.60)

With this trip I took care of three Christmas gifts, got myself some much-needed clothes and a couple of candles, stocked up a little on journals (I can never have too many), bought tortilla chips and cheese to make chili topped nachos for dinner at while at work, and got the laundry detergent I needed. Not too bad.
NOTE: I was saddened to see that the Little Caesar’s is already closed. I went into Kmart thinking this would be my last order of the cheesy breadsticks, but no. 😦
Have you been shopping a Kmart is closing yet? What do you think of the deals so far?
