Well I thought I was all done with my pre-Christmas shopping but then a friend at work told me that Kohl’s had their Jansport backpacks on clearance so I had to make another trip back today and boy did I score! These backpacks all retail for between $59 and $89 but I got them on clearance today for between $4.80 and $12.80, PLUS I got to use a 30% off coupon AND I got $10 back in Kohl’s Cash. I saved a whopping $375.41 and that doesn’t even include the $10 Kohl’s cash. With five kids I seem to spend a small fortune on backpacks for back to school each year so I’m thrilled to have stocked them up for next year at these bargain prices.
While I was at Kohl’s I also picked up a few more of gift items on doorbuster prices to put in the gift closet for use during the year. I love to pick up awesome gift sets of things like lip balm, makeup, games, wallets and the like because most department stores have a huge assortment during the holidays at greatly reduced prices that you can’t get during the rest of the year. Simply planning ahead a little bit for birthday gifts, teacher gifts and maybe even a few things you’ll need for yourself you can save a bundle by combining sale prices, coupons and cash back offers.
