Some serious bargain shopping

I was on a mission yesterday to get as much as I could for as little money as possible. CVS had sent me a $5 reward so since I had to pick up a prescription, that was my first stop. They have their Christmas items discounted 75% so I bought three jumbo gift bags (reg price $4.99 each) and a box of Hallmark Christmas cards. Total cost to me, 56 cents. I also had $10 reward buckets at Kohls. I looked at the clothes but in all honesty, I have way too many clothes already and just couldn't justify buying any more. I decided on a box of coffee pods for my coffee maker, the cost to me $2.99. I took a picture of my look that cost me $3.55. I am pretty happy with this haul!!

That is great. The Christmas stuff was pretty picked over last week, and I spent more than that on what I managed to find.

I refuse to buy things that aren't sharply discounted since this was not a necessity. I already bought medium sized bags at Dollar General at 75% off.

What a great shopping trip you had, I love a good bargain but haven't gone out much this year after Christmas to scoop up the bargains.

@BelleStarr We have a Dollar General on both sides of us but I have only been in one once, maybe one day I will wander in there and take a look around. I love people with a good eye for bargains

@cintol I love Dollar General, I do very well there. Not the highest quality but a good selection of items. I got a new Christmas rug for $1.75

I went out for grocery shopping yesterday and, choosing carefully, I bought only food that was from 40 to 50% discount.

I wish I could find that many things on sale here at the grocery store. I do look for sales but many things I use are almost never on sale.

@BelleStarr They had coffee beans at 50% and several frozen products, mainly fish fillets (salmon, perch, cod), that I bought.

You did really well. I often buy up things for next Christmas just after the present Christmas.

@BelleStarr I think I won't buy anymore. I did get some little candy canes last week for a pittance though. I wouldn't mind some Christmas bags though if they have any of those left.

This one here in Florida is about 7 or 8 miles which is way closer than in Connecticut.
