Bag Sale at Goodwill...

Running a bunch of clothes through the wash right now.
Final count after 1.5 hours in my Goodwill store...(drum roll please)...
167 articles of clothing, one pair of socks, and two pairs of brand new mittens for next Winter!
$35 for one whole bag, plus used a $5 coupon. I was told that next time they do their bag sale they will not accept the $5 coupon.
Still an awesome deal. Got so many cute clothes. SO MANY! I really need to take a picture of some of the clothes to show you all how cute they are. My kids were going nuts today as I pulled each one out and made piles showing them which ones for them. Imagine Keely jumping up and down, landing on her pile, and then running up and squeezing my neck. Then, Preston is off to the side, sitting on the floor, jumping up in the air and sitting back down. Kipton is watching Preston and laughing out loud every time he leaps in the air. Meanwhile, I am busting at the seams to show the kiddos each piece of clothing, and Scott is turning up the volume on the TV, trying to reposition himself on the couch so he can watch basketball. :) Love my family! It's the little things, ya know? :)

Okay, so, my advice:
1.If you are planning to participate in the bag sale try to get there soon after they open so the clothes in the size you are looking for are not already picked over.

2. Pile all the clothes you are considering into your cart, even if you are not sure.
3. Take some time off to the side somewhere and one by one inspect each piece of clothing, deciding it is a keeper or not. Rehang the ones you are not going to be taking.
4. As you find ones you want to keep, roll them tight one at a time and pack them into your Goodwill bag, which is provided to you by the store.
5. Use every little bit of space you can in the bag and then some. :)
6. When you think you can't fit anymore in, pack 10-15 more things in. Trust me, you can.

Anyone else make it to Goodwill today, besides me??

Kmart Double Coupon Event Specifics

Thanks to Colin at for letting us in on the specific of the Kmart Double Coupons event. Here they are:

  • You can use manufacturer coupons up to and including a $2 value (i.e. if you have a $2/1 coupon, it will be doubled up to $2 for a total of $4 off the price of the item)
  • You must be a member of the Shop Your Way Rewards program AND the cashier MUST swipe your reward’s card at the beginning of your transaction!!*
  • Does not include Kmart Store Coupons or Kmart Pharmacy Store Coupons (i.e. Kmart coupons will NOT be doubled)
  • Limit 5 total coupons per customer per day. (sigh)
  • If you are using more than 5 coupons in your transaction, ONLY the first 5 coupons will be doubled. (double sigh, not double coupon)

*If you are not currently a Kmart Shop Your Way Rewards card member, do NOT stress! There are 3 simple ways to become a member:

  1. Go to the Customer Service Dept at your local Kmart or Sears store and request a card; you will be able to sign up and receive your card immediately (this is obviously the best option if you have a store close by)!
  2. Call the Shop Your Way Rewards Card dept at 1.800.991.8708; they will take all your information over the phone and then a card will be mailed to you (the card typically takes 6-8 weeks to arrive). Even if you do not have the physical card in hand for the double coupon days, you can give the cashier your phone # or member # in order to pull up your reward’s account.
  3. Click here to sign up on-line; then just print off a temporary card to use while you wait for the permanent card to arrive in the mail.

So what do you think about these rules? Are you planning a special trip to participate in Kmart Doubles?

Zenni Optical $8 glasses

Got two pairs of prescription glasses and two clip-on sunglasses for just $30 shipped. They came in the mail today and I am very pleased. Some pics will be posted later. I have only heard good things about I have never heard anyone complain about their glasses. It is a slight risk, only because you are not trying them on. (it's online) What I did was tried on glasses like the ones they had and decided what type I liked and then bought them. After shipping, less than $15 for one pair...I figured it was worth the chance.

What to do when onions are on sale.

Check out my other blog that I do with my old college chums.
Just did an entry on what to do with a big bag of onions when they are a hot sale.
