Final Trips to Kmart and CVS *UPDATE*

I'm DONE! DONE, DONE and DONE!! Shopping that is - for the week ;) I made my final two trips today. I didn't take a picture of my last Kmart trip. I got more of the same stuff. Instead I decided I would break down the numbers for all the trips:



Merchandise Total (before coupons): $341.78 + tax
Merchandise Total (after coupons): $88.22 (tax included)
Also received 7 vouchers (retail value of up to $12 each) for free movie tickets!


The movie vouchers alone are worth $84!! Granted, a movie here costs $8.50 but that is still almost $60 of savings there. Plus, I have some great products that I will be able to sell at my upcoming garage sale and use! Have I mentioned how much I love the Double Coupon Days at Kmart??

*Update: found another movie voucher in one of the bags!! Which means I saved even more. Mike & I will be able to go to FOUR movies for FREE!


Ok, onto CVS. I went back to finish out the SoBe deal, get some more L'Oreal and find the Free after ECBs tampons. I succeeded on all of them! Here is what I got:
