Frugal Friday

The other day I was going through all of Mallorie's clothes and putting away the outfits that she has outgrown.  I then realized that she had a lot of 6 month clothes but not to many 9 and 12 months.  Time to go shopping.  I first went to Old Navy.  I had gotten a coupon from a co-worker for 30% off. (sorry the picture is blurry) and the World Wildlife Fund gets 5% of what I spent.  Win Win!

There were a lot of clothes on clearance but just not the right size or I did not like them.  I did find a couple things that I liked.
The green striped shirt was on clearance for $4.99 and the super cute Romper was $10.  Then with the 30% coupon I only paid $11 and some change. 

I then headed to Kohl's.  I had seen this REALLY cute outfit in their Sunday ad for $10.  So I was planning on going this week and getting it.  Then when I checked my email this morning I found a COUPON! (Bonus.. I could print more than one and they are good all weekend.  We are going back today!)
(take $10 off any in store purchase greater than $10)

Here is the outfit that I got at Kohl's.  I was looking for a 9 Month size but the only one that they had left was a 12 month. So I grabbed it.  I think it will be fine, a little big, but it will work.
I ended up paying $1.20 in tax and that is it.  The Kohl's store is remodeling the entire inside so it is kinda a mess but they were having a promotion that if you spent over $20 they would give you a $10 gift card to use that that store only next week. 

As I was leaving the store, very happy with my deal, a lady stopped me in her car.  She rolled down her window down and asked if I lived around here.  I told her I did.  She explained that she was from Grand Rapids and would not be back around here next week so if I could use it I could have her $10 gift card.  I asked if she was sure and she told me to get something for my baby. (I was carrying her in the carseat!)

So now I have another $10 to spend there next week too!  So overall I made $8.80 on my Kohl's trip!

Lastly I went to Target, My favorite store.  I only had one thing on my list here, a DVD.  But I have had my eye on a swimsuit for Mallorie.  I figured with the great deals that I had gotten I would splurge on it.  The suit is a 3 piece swimsuit for $12.50.  It comes with the top, bottoms, and really cute board shorts.  Then while I was walking around the store (Mallorie was falling asleep) I found a cute towel that matched for only $6.  I HAD to get it.  She is all ready for Summer.
I did not have any coupons for Target but I did get everything on sale.  I even got my Hubby a DVD that he has wanted.  ($16.99)
My total for Target was $35.49

For all three stores and the bargains that I got was $38.14 with the $10 coupon for next week.  I think I did pretty good.  What deals have you snatched up lately?


  1. You did great! I was at the Holland Kohls in the last two weeks, but it was before the construction.
    I got a deal at Penneys yesterday. I had recieved a $10 off a $10 purchase in the mail. We have a Keurig coffeemaker. They had their large package of coffee marked down from $19.99 to $10.99, so when I used the coupon, I only had to pay 99 cents! What a deal~!

  2. That is a good deal! If you sign up to recevied emails fro Kohl's they will send you $10 off coupons about once a month. I think they carry teh Keurig coffee too!

  3. Gotta love it when you get deals like that...Great job! Love the swimsuit and towel!
