Black Friday deals

Yes, I know that Black Friday was over a week ago, but I haven't had a chance to share what I consider to be the best of my deals with you yet. I'm pretty happy about the deals I got.


I bought two 5 piece sets of luggage that were "normally" $199.99, for $47.99. I had a 15% off coupon and I earned $10 Kohl's Cash for every $50 I spent. I picked up a Christmas outfit for me and for the kids as well, so the two luggage sets essentially netted me $20 in Kohl's Cash Total. I will be submitting each for a $10 rebate. Making it feel like I paid about $27.99 per set. In total, I saved $620.30 and spent $264.76 with tax. I earned $50 in Kohl's Cash. Not too shabby! A savings of 72%, when I include the Kohl's Cash.


I headed to JCPenney to look for a coat for me. I wound up buying four coats, 2 for me and one each for the kids, plus a pair of pajamas for Christmas. My two coats were regularly $200 and $180, and I got them for $49.88 and $39.88, respectively. For my son, the coat was regularly $79.9 and was on sale for $14.88! My daughter's coat wasn't as good of a deal, but not too bad - it was regularly $79.99 and it was on sale for $31.99. The pajamas were $13.99, down from $34.99. My total with tax was $160, with a savings of $424.35 on the day! A 73% savings!

I love that my total savings at these two stores was over $1000!

In addition, I stood in line at Staples and picked up two laptops for my husband. He needed them (wanted them?) and since I was out and they were a good deal, I waited in the cold and bought them. I also picked up some bowling shoes for my husband and a few gifts while I was out, some of which simply can't be shared because I don't want for others to read them.
