  1. Wow, what time is you get home? You are a power shopper, AND you know what you're doing! Way to go! Anita

  2. I just went out to Kohls not too long ago, and I got some great deals on pajamas for my boys.

    Looks like you got some great deals!

  3. I did power shop! I got home at 10:15pm!

    Sometimes I do really good at Kohl's! I have like $70 in gift cards left from Christmas. I have just been picking things up for cheap here and there!

  4. You did really good. I love kohls and their clearance sales.

  5. I need to get out and look more! You always find the best prices.

    Thanks for commenting on my blog!

  6. You use a lot of prepackaged foods - I wonder how much more you'd save and how much healthier you'd be eating if you cooked more from scratch?

  7. We actually eat very healthy and I make lots of food from scratch. Not sure what you see above that is considered to be "a lot of prepackaged food". But I am very happy with the savings I had this week since I was already well stocked on fruits and veggies.

  8. Way to go! I love 90% off at Kohls :) I just went a couple days ago and got three articles of clothing for $4.70. (including a pair of pants for under five bucks, a sweater for next winter for two bucks). It totaled $14.70 but I had a coupon for ten free dollars :)
