Kmart Double Coupon Shopping Trip Number Two 12/08

I normally do not shop at Kmart simply because their prices are so ridiculously high! Even with my hordes of coupons, I didn't venture too far from the "Bargain Bin" items (aka free or really cheap after double coupons).

This was my third successful trip to Kmart during their double coupon madness. My first trip was back in October, then twice this round (November 30 - December 6) . During this trip I realized that Kmart has raised their prices, substantially, on the items that had previously been free after coupon. Sneaky! Sneaky! Sneaky!

My advise to everyone is to help each other compile a "Kmart free & nearly free shopping list", like the one I have here, and stick to it. Impulse buying at Kmart without a coupon will definitely put a strain on your wallet and cut a huge chunk out of your total savings.

All in all this trip was a good one thanks to the Meat coupons I acquired from ebay.
