K-mart Deals 10/3 - Super Double Coupons

The family made a trip to K-mart tonight to take advantage of the Super Double Coupons promotion that they are running this weekend. We did okay. It was a regular K-mart, so the grocery items were more limited in selection. I probably would have saved more/spent more if we had made it to a Super K.

We bought $6 worth of stuff that we didn't have coupons for, so that skewed the numbers slightly, but here is a summary of what we got:

Goodlife Cat Food
Cascade Complete Dishwasher Gel
Glade Room and Carpet Freshener
Fiber One bars
5 boxes of General Mills Cereals
2 Easy Macs single cups
Colgate Sensitive Toothpaste
2 Colgate 360 Toothbrushes
Hot Fries
2 Hormel Compleats

The total before coupons was $52.09 for 19 items. After coupons, it was $21.09. I saved 60% with coupons. If you exclude the last three line items that we got on sale, but not with coupon, it would have been 67% savings.

I had a $5/$50 coupon, but it was only good at Super K locations. That would have been great if we could have used it.

The cereal represented just over 40% of the OOP, but we needed some cereal.

True to K-mart, there was only one register open, but the customer service desk was helping check out people.

I will see what the coupons and ad look like on Sunday and maybe make a trip back.

Great savings! My Kmart was out of pretty much everything but I did score a few things :-)
