Total After Rebates
After a busy week and a sick teen, I finally found time to put away my Kmart Double Finds from Sunday. Yes, Sunday, I am behind and definitely running out of shelf space in our storage room.
I spent a little more than $80.00 and with Becca and I each taking two runs through the checkouts with our 25 items each, we managed to find all this.
This trip I used 4--$5.00 off of $50.00 coupon on each transaction, bought the required numbers of General Mills and Renuzit/Soft Scrub/Purex items to get 2--$5.00 and 2--$3.00 Catalina coupons which Becca and I each used two on our second transactions to save even more.
Add my other Kmart Receipt, we have enough to qualify for 2-$25.00 gift cards from Glamour Magazine for spending $50.00 at Kmart for each $25.00 card. Taking into consideration my gift card rebates my Kmart Doubles cost me a mere $30.00.
We live in rural Wisconsin and I may have to drive 35 miles to get my doubles, but as you can see it was well worth it. I budget $100.00 a month for doubles to stock our home, my kids homes and apartments, help my friends and the extras for charity.
