Confessions of a Bargain-holic

I have to confess ... I love a good bargain. And today, I was in bargain heaven! I got a flyer in the mail a few days ago advertising a huge pre-4th of July Sale at Kohl's Department Store. What caught my eye was a Black & Decker 6-slice oven toaster going on sale for $39.99. My mom has told me that they need a new oven toaster and that I should keep my eye open for a good deal. The Kohl's price was an extremely good deal since the same toaster was selling for $99.99 before the sale started. The sale starts today so this morning I called our local Kohl's and found out they only had 4 toasters to sell. I dragged my sister to Kohls as soon as we finished lunch.

While at Kohl's, I couldn't resist. Not only did I get the toaster, I also got a few other items that were on sale too. New pillows for Jojo and myself, a turquoise Elle blouse, and Buy-ology environmentally friendly bags (the kinds that are great for traveling cause when folded they can fit in your purse but when opened up they are the size of a regular tote).


Today's shopping spree: (2 of the 4 Queen pillows, my Elle blouse, the Buy-ology bag (see how it opens up?), and the Black & Decker toaster that is now packed in a balikbayan box on its way to Manila!)

Original Prices:
Toaster - $99.00
Pillows - $9.99 each (I got 4)
Elle blouse - $36.00
Buy-ology Bags - $1.99 each (I got 2)
My total should have been: $179.93

THEN on Sale the prices dropped to:
Toaster - $39.99
Pillows - $3.49 each
Elle blouse - $18.00
Buy-ology Bags - $1.69 each
So my total (before tax) was $75.33

THEN I whipped out my Kohl's card and find out that all Kohls members get an additional 15% discount. My total goes down to $64.03.

THEN the clerk tells me they have a special promo today. For every $50.00 I spend, I get a coupon for $10.00 to use on my next purchase.

Is this a great bargain or what??? I love it!

Wow cool dets!:) I wish I was there too... We would circle Khols together with atsi and we would end up buying more I think! haha :) I love shopping too..and I agree that it somehow releases stress. Can't wait to go there later in the year and for you to come home so we could continue our "gegert" shopping together! Looking forward to it! Takecare dets!

Thanks in advance for the oven toaster. Your bargain shopping sounds really great! With such prices one really needs steel determination to keep from buying. Enjoy your shopping, but just bear in mind for every item that enters your closet, one other item has to leave.
