I Paid $10 for a $60 Coat!

My daughter needed a new winter coat for school, and I wanted to get a great deal!  I went to a couple different stores last week, Target, Kohl's and then to Sears.  Kohl's and Target had some cute ones that I really liked.  The only thing I didn't like about them was their prices.  I have a difficult time trying to justify spending full price when I can shop around for sales and clearance.

Sears was my last stop, my fingers were crossed.  I had a $10 off $20 purchase coupon, that I had printed off a couple days earlier.  I was excited when I saw that the winter coats were 55% off.  The coat that I picked out was normally $60.  It is super cute, brown with pink accents.



The coat rang up at $20.00, which is a bigger savings than 55%, I'm sure of it!  I used my $10 coupon and paid just $10.60 for a $60 coat!  That's one heck of a deal!!  I also got my son a pair of camo long johns, normally $18.00 for just $6.20!

Have you gotten any great bargains lately?

Awesome deal Bridget! My coupon is burning up and going to waste, as I won't get a chance to go to Sears...unless we end up in Key West, where they actually have a Sears:)

That's a great deal. I always try to look around for sales especially since they grow out of it so fast. I'm your newest follower from Thursdays friends and giveaways

That is an awesome deal! I recently found a gently used winter coat for my youngest at a yard sale for $4.00. I was so excited. It's like a challenge to find great deals and I love reading about them. Have an awesome weekend!
Blessings,

Great bargain! I've been itching to get over to Sears to use that apparel coupon, too. I'm thinking Christmas outfit for my son.
