    My family jokes about me because I only shop in the clearance aisles at Kohls but I find such great buys.
    Kohls clearance is now 70% off the sale price so things are really cheap.
    Today I bought 4 twin size Martex thermal blankets regular price $49.99 for $5.37 each.
    I got a Velvet edged Chenille throw reg $39.99 for $2.00
    Two Root Beer candles in glass holders $12.99 for $1.00 and they smell so yummy!
    Two sets of Twin Jersey sheets $25.99 for $4.65
    tons of summer blouses for me most were regular price between $34 and $38 for between $5 and $7 each.
    I even found a pair of shoes that I love that were priced $64.99 for $23.99. these are not summer shoes, they are black boot shoes with 2" heels, and really comfortable especially since the only shoes I have worn since I finished chemo in 2005 are Crocs.
    Last week they had a great sale with between 30 and 60% off most items and I had a 30% scratch off coupon. I found an Oneida service for 8 white china set with a wicher pattern regular $99.99 and I got it for $15.97. And a nice set of outdoor grill accessories in a carrying case reg $29.99 for $4.90. And I got my grandson some Fisher Price and Leap Frog toys marked down 50% and used my 30% coupon on them too.
    So between last week and this I am almost done with my Christmas shopping and I have only spent $189.00. If I had to pay full price I would guess it would be around $900 or more.
    Hope everyone likes what I bought because I can't take it back. lol

    Tell me about it!!! Amongst a bunch of other stuff I bought, I got 4 articles of maternity clothing for $2 each! I got a pair of shorts, 2 pairs of capris and a shirt for $8, and I'm not even pregnant!!! I spent an arm and a leg on maternity clothes while pregnant for DS, so I figured I'll just pack these away with all my other maternity stuff and when the time comes, there will be a few less things I'll need to buy at full price! I LOVE Kohl's sales!!

    I was at Kohls and they had tons of pairs of name brand shoes for $2. I bought 30 pair. Nieces, nephews, my younger two kids. I had run in there to get something completely else and ended up overfilling a cart with shoes. The look in the cashiers face was priceless. I felt bad.

    They probably only had that look because you beat them to the deals. I had a friend that worked there part time and spent more than she made. They get all the regular discounts, plus an employee discount on top of that.

    Way to go -- did you get the $10 coupons, too, or was that just in our area.

    I bought a cute pair of print Keds for $2 last year. My very nice quality Nikes were $5 the year before that. The strangest thing I've ever found was a belt the right size for my vacuum cleaner for around 15 cents.

    My only warning involves the Khol's credit card... If you buy something near the end of the billing cycle you will get your bill on a Monday to be due by that Friday- so you really have to be ontop of your mail.(which is not something that I am so I get in trouble often....) Just be sure to open that bill as soon as it comes because it is usually due right then and there. I guess I was just used to my other credit cards that come 2 weeks before the due date. Maybe I'm just disorganized.
    But I do LOVE the sales at Khol's!

    Kohl's recently changed from the additional 70% off yellow tags and 50% off red tags to a price marked on the tag that reflects the amount off the original price. The deals we had before are long gone. Kohls has lost a long time shopper here. Hopefully they will go back to the old way of doing markdowns.

    To show an example of pricing here now:

    Before: Item was 42.00, marked down to 30.00. 70% off the markdown made the item 9.00.

    Now: Item was 42.00-ticket now reflects 70% off, leaving the product priced at 12.60.

    Red tags no longer exist here. :guilty:

    I can't seem to resist Kohl's clearance sales, either!! I spent almost $250 and now I want to go back to look for some of those blankets! I did get in on the $2 shoes, but our Kohl's didn't have many so I only got 4 pair for me and 2 pair for oldest DD. That's probably a good thing for my wallet, though! ;)

    Yeah, when I got the $2 shoes they were also giving you the $10 if you spent $50 or more. I think last week I was almost in there everyday. They also had all the Dora stuff half off so i got my daughter some Christmas presents. I really want to go today and see what else I can find. My 2 sister in laws ae very young mothers one of two kids and one of three and do not make hardly any money so we try to help them out as much as we can. So with $2 name brand shoes you cant beat it...

    Call them and have your billing due date changed--in my state it isn't legal to only have 5 days to pay--sometimes that is just the turn around time for mailing it back. My MasterCard was like that and I called and they changed it, so let them know it may be a computer glitch.

    Halloween stuff at Kohl's is 55% off.
    I didn't get the $10 for each $50 last night. I am going to have to check and see if that is still going on. If it is they owe me $40. Peggie

    I am so disappointed that our Kohls is doing their clearances the same way. Everything seems so much more expensive now. I know my girls aren't going to have nearly as many clothes now!!

    I work at Kohls and I put up the sale ads and clearance signs. It is so hard not to spend my entire check there every week. I just got a boat load of clothes last night for $28. Shirts, pants, panties and sandals. All for .50, 1.00, 2.00 plus my 15% discount. Life is good. :banana:

    Scan those GeoTrax sets in the regular toy section (not clearance). Mine came up $2 for a set that had a $39.99 sticker on it. It was the Conductor's set and then also the Oceanside set. I cleaned out the Newport News, VA store.

    Speaking of Kohls - who else likes their new commercial featuring the song 'Big Country'? I love that song and the commercial, too! :teeth:
