KMart trips - Anouk's

It says trips because I've made 3. The first trip was OK, the second was good, and the third was marvelous. At the risk of boring some of you, I will post the deals I found in Rockford. I will post trip #2 and #3 separate. From the get-go, I want to let you know that I hardly used any internet coupons, so I won't have many links to post. Most all of these coupons were from recent newspaper inserts.

My first trip was OK - for over $60 worth of stuff I spent $20 dollars, but that because it included a cool mop I've been wanting (full price $11 - gasp) and some things that I wanted to get even though they weren't free. For example:

New Purex 3-in-1 laundry sheets - $5.99
$2 off coupon from recent insert
Final price: $1.99

Planters' mixed nuts and deluxe mixed nuts - 2/$6.00 (normally between $5-7 each: who would ever pay that!)
$1.50/2 off coupon from recent insert
Final price: $3.00 for 2 cans

Rubbermaid Mixer Mate bottle - $2.99 (needed one of these for my frozen concentrate juices I make - ended buying another one, I liked it so much . . . plus had another coupon! :)
$1.00 off Rubbermaid drink container coupon from recent insert
Final price: $0.99

Neosporin - $4.29
$1.00 off coupon from recent insert
Final price: $2.29

So anyway, these things above were things I really wanted to get anyway, so was willing to not get for free :)

Here are some other deals:

Gillette body wash - $4.45 (not all are at this price, so double-check)
$1.00 off coupon from recent insert
$2.00 off coupon from tearpad attached to the shelf (KMart coupon, does not get doubled)
Final price: $0.45

Starbucks Frappuccino - $2
$1.00 off coupon from recent insert
FREE

So I won't bore you with the rest . . . but I will post, as per Kristie's request, my two trips from today which were better than this one! I even have pictures! :)

Good news: I overheard that KMart gets their truckload of stuff tomorrow - so I would wait until tomorrow afternoon or Friday when the shelves should be restocked with some of the stuff that got "wiped out" by double-couponers like us! :) Or maybe call to find out when everything will be up on their shelves.
