88 cents

Even though this is a food blog, I just have to share another one of my passions: good deals. I am on a constant quest for good deals, be it rolling ECB’s at CVS or using coupons at the grocery store to get boxes of cereal for pennies.

Fun fact: at one point late last summer, we had 19 boxes of cereal in our possession at once. It was stacked in our cabinets and on top of our cabinets in a very haphazard fashion. And we ate it ALL! Well, and donated some too.

I digress.

Last night, I spent 88 cents. And it was a very happy 88 cents from my wallet, because it went towards the purchase of these beauties.

Home purchases- serving dishes and table linens.
Deals & steals that make this girl happy happy happy!

What all is there, you ask?

  • A serving plate
  • A serving bowl
  • 2 placemats
  • 2 napkins
  • 2 napkin rings

And how did I get such a wonderful deal? By using Kohl’s cash, of course.

I have never used Kohl’s cash before. It’s basically a marketing ploy to get you to spend more money at their store, and I am sure prices are marked up to compensate for this ‘cash.’ During certain promotional periods, if you spend $50, you receive $10 in Kohl’s cash, which then can be used at Kohl’s like cash [hence the name] during specified dates.

A few weeks ago, my husband mentioned he needed some new work clothes. Being the fabulous wife I am, and seizing every opportunity my husband willingly will go to a store for something besides beef jerky or Mountain Dew [I exaggerate… kind of…], I suggested we go shopping the very next night. And so we did, buying him two pairs of pants, one long sleeve button-down, two polos, and one short sleeve button-down, and earning me $20 in fun money, which I went to spend last night. Bliss.

I spent some time perusing my options and ended up with a total of $20.82 prior to tax. After applying my Kohl’s cash, my total was the aforementioned wonderful 88 cents. It doesn’t get any better than that, folks.

A savings of $56.10! Oh yes please!

Just look at that receipt. Fun fun fun fun fun. A free $20 and a huge savings? I’ll take that any day!

Sarah and her goodies!
Thumbs up for a good deal!

Oh I am such a dork.

Happy Saturday.

Question of the Day: What good deals have you gotten lately?

Disclosure: Kohl’s did not pay me for this publicity, to shop in their store, to exploit their Kohl’s cash deal and spend a mere 88 cents when they want customers to get that $20 and return and spend another $20 at their store. Ha ha, the thought is funny. However, should Kohl’s or any other business so desire to compensate me for a review or like experience I would be more than willing to oblige! 🙂 Any takers?

Thanks for visiting... I would love to hear from you!
