Another Kmart Run

I had stopped at Kmart earlier this week. It wasn't too impressive - I got $75 worth of merchandise for about $20 OOP. Today though I really scored!! I had a $3 off your next shopping trip from the trip on Monday so I wanted to make sure and use that. I had heard that they were clearancing a lot of toys. I found a great bath toy for the boys. It was marked $5 but when I got to the register it only rang up $2.50 - I bought a candy bar for a filler item and all together it cost me just $.41!! SCORE! Here is what else I bought:(first trip - $20.15 OOP)
4 (3 roll) pkgs. Sparkle paper towels $2.99 each
4 (4 roll) pkgs. Angel Soft toilet paper $1.79 each
-used (4) $2 Sparkle/Angel Soft printable coupons
1 Olay body wash $6.49
-used $2 Olay coupon
-used $2 Kmart Olay coupon
3 Pantene shampoo/conditioners 3/$10
-used (3) $2 Pantene coupons
1 Purex 3-in-1 detergent sheets $5.99
-used $2 Purex coupon
1 pack Cascade dishwaser packs $4.79
-used $1 Cascade coupon
-used $1 Kmart Cascade coupon
1 Cascade rinse agent $3.99
-used FREE Cascade rinse coupon
-used $5/$25 Health/Beauty Kmart coupon (printed after first trip)
$10.63 OOP
I got some really great deals this shopping trip! I didn't pay anything for the Pantene, Olay, or Cascade rinse and the paper towels and toilet paper only cost me $.78 for both items!! I also got three more coupons - $5/$25 health and beauty, $5/$50 grocery and drug and $5 off any purchase. I'm not sure if I'll use the first two coupons but I will definitely use the $5 one - maybe I'll be able to pick up some gifts!!

Do you get overage at all with these coupons? Like, will both the KMart & Olay coupons double to the full $4 amount so that you get the $1.50 overage?

No overage :( I guess their computers are too smart for that.

I made my last trip there today and got some more free items. I bought some Kotex items that were priced at $1.29 - used a $1 coupon so the register took off $1 and then the remaining $.29. Since I stocked up on feminine pads from Target when they had the Always Infinity gift card deal these will all be going to one of the shelters here in town.
