Back to School Shopping: Saved $762!

I am a freak when it comes to shopping sales and clearance. And when I can add a coupon as well, I'm thrilled! I always shop for next season when they clearance the items the previous year. I can't bring myself to pay full price for kids clothes very often because they outgrow them so quickly!
So, here is my most recent shopping trip that I'm so thrilled to share. I just went and bought all the winter clothes my kids will need for the upcoming fall/winter season and I saved a total of $762!
Frugal is my middle name! :)

I shopped the clearance sales and had coupons for EVERY single store I shopped at and here's what I got.
I ended up getting $948 worth of clothes and I only spent $186! Not too shabby I'm thinking for dressing two kids in great clothes!

A couple examples of my savings: I ended up getting an $80 Columbia coat for $10! And a pair of $30 Nike's for 52 cents! The Nike's were $30 regular price. They were on clearance for $10! I had a $10 coupon and had to pay 52 cents tax!
