A Kohl's trip

November 11th, 2013 at 07:25 am

Like the rest of the world, I went to Kohl's yesterday. I had a 20% off coupon, as well as a $10 and $5 off coupon. My mission was to find a pair of winter walking boots, and I did. I ended up with a pair of Eddie Bauer boots, short, pull-on, lined and roomy enough for SmartWool socks. They were originally $90 and with the store's sale and my coupons, I got them for $38.

My only regret is that they are not a little taller, but since I mostly walk on sidewalks I guess that is not a big issue. The big issues are warm, comfortable, and non-slip, and they fit the bill. And the price was great.

And it looks like I got them just in time, as snow is predicted today. (I'm not wearing them, however; I don't think the snow will amount to much.)

On Saturday I did two loads of laundry ($3) and went to the grocery ($34). My ten items were:

Flour Tortillas
Cinnamon Applesauce
Tomato Soup
Wheat Saltines
Plain Yogurt
Sirloin Steak

The steak was actually two packages, two steaks in each package. It was a BOGO. I froze three steaks and will have one for dinner tonight.

I finally made the tomato-pumpkin basil soup, and I loved it!

I didn't do much else this weekend, as I am still under the weather with this cold. And I've got lots of activity coming up -- grandson's birthday, a visit from my BFF, a trip to Florida, uncle's memorial service, granddaughter's birthday, Thanksgiving, son's birthday, girls' weekend, and then Christmas! Wow. I feel like going back to bed just from typing all that!

    I went to Kohl's yesterday too! I think I got snookered into buying stuff thinking i was getting a "deal" though. Even with the 15% off plus a $10 cash coupon, I still paid $74 for two vests and a mock turtleneck shell. I may return one of the vests as I would then still have spent over $50 to qualify for that $10 cash coupon.

    Were you able to combine your $10 and $5 coupons? I have both of those, too, and thought the fine print said they could not be combined, so I'm curious.

    Sounds like some busy weeks ahead!

    Yes, I did combine them -- the fine print said they could be combined.

    If you think you'll get sufficient use, knit leg warmers keep you cozy if you feel your boots aren't as tall as you'd like. I suspect most of the gals that wear them here keep them on all day as a fashion statement since they don't wear tights for warmth.

    Kohls seems to be the place to be...we hit it Saturday!
