This is tax-free weekend for us. So, armed with a bunch of coupons and few gift cards, we headed out for some school/office supplies, groceries, and apparel. First, we hit Barnes and Noble with the new BOGO latte (iced) coupon and left my husband to read a few magazines. My daughter and I headed out to a few stores. We browsed - but only found dress at Anthropologie. It was heavily discounted, plus she had a 15% off coupon and no tax. Even the cashier commented about her bargain. Then we headed off to strip mall. My husband got his hair cut while we browsed Stein Mart - we just couldn't find anything and the prices just were as good as they had been in the past. Then to Target - we did some damage there. My husband loaded up on "unders" and socks - we had a few $1 off Hanes coupons - and no tax. We also decided to load up on ink for the printers, school supplies. Using my Target credit card - I got an additional 5% off. Then to Earthfare - they had a $5 for 5 natural/organic items coupon. Most of the item were sold out. But with such great service, we got substitutions that far exceeded our expectations. I also took a bottle back for a $2 deposit (natural lemonade). Then to Aldi for a few staples - EVOO, .69 for a dozen eggs, etc. The final stop, CVS for dishwasher detergent - I had a $4 ecb burning a hole in my wallet - so, it was the perfect item to use it on. Tomorrow, my daughter and I plan to head out for some more shopping. We are hoping to find something at Kohl's with our $10 off anything coupon that can be combined with a 15% off coupon. We also can pick-up a freebie item at ULTA, Bath and Body Works, and Victoria's Secret. We will be going to the mall with those 3 stores later in the evening as we plan to attend VS's Pink Party. We also got a lot of yard work done. My husband mowed while my daughter and I pulled weeds out of the plant beds. Now we are watching the Olympics.
