Successful Shopping Day

November 10th, 2013 at 02:49 pm

So we went down to Canton today(the closest shopping area, which is about 50 miles away) to do some shopping. We always eat lunch at Olive Garden when we head down that way...it never disappoints!

Anyway...We went to Rue 21 and I got DD 4 shirts and 2 pair of pants and DS 4 long sleeve plaid shirts. Then I used a coupon on my phone for $10 off for every thirty we spent. SWEET!!

Then we went to rackroom shoes. I am in desperate need of shoes. All I had was sandals and it is getting kind of cold for those here. So DD got a pair of boots and a pair of loafers. I got two pair of clogs. And the salesperson gave us a $10 off coupon. SCORE!!

Next we ventured to Kohls. I had several shirts to return that didn't fit. I exchanged them for 3 shirts and purse. I didn't have a good winter purse. I then used a 15% off coupon on my phone. Plus I got $2o in Kohl's cash that I will use on clearance items. LOVE IT!!

So without printing a single coupon today I managed to save quite a bit of money. Do you ever check online coupons before you head to a store? Now days you can just pull the coupon up on your phone and they can scan it in. Super Convenient.

I ended up spending more money than I planned but I think we got alot for the money we spent.

OH and if you are looking for a new laptop...Best Buy has a basic laptop available for $229 with free shipping. I asked my IT guy and he said this is a great deal. I bought one for each of the kids for Christmas and now I am done. That is all they are getting, besides maybe a few stocking stuffers, which are usually things like toothpaste, brushes, and other personal care items.

I have updates my sidebar with the total income from survey money last month. $169.08. Not too bad for a little bit of my time. I have already earned $70 this month. I also have earned $22 from ebates that was credited to my account last week.

I guess that is it. Sorry for the wordiness. I guess I should probably post more often then it wouldn't be so long.

    I check online coupons, but rarely find any for the places we are planning on shopping. Sounds like you had a good day.

    I do look for coupons before I shop. I don't have a smartphone yet, so I can't pull the coupons up in the store. Someday.

    My girls will get gifts worth about $150 each. And this year it is not enough to cover the Photoshop Software she wants. She will have to use her own money to buy it. I would try to find free stocking stuffers if you can.

    Nice job on making money on those surveys! Don't charge more on the card and I bet you can get it paid off for good.

    CCF...My sister is going to give me $100 towards each of the computers for her gift to the kids. Otherwise I wouldn't have been able to afford them either!

    I'm sure your kids will be thrilled with their gift!

    Great job! Proud of you! This year for xmas my DD1 is getting a stocking and $100. That's it! DD2 will get clothes and toys that equal to $100 and a stocking. I'm sticking to my budget and when the kids are older their stuff is more expensive and they want/need a lot.
