A Deal So Good I'm in Shock

The family and I headed out to the mall today to pick up my Sears order from the Boxing day online sale .

P.S.--The online Boxing day sale has been extended.  Dec 31-Jan 1st.  Sears is offering an additional 30% off Sears Outlet prices with your sears card (coupon code  941612739)  and 25% off with no Sears card (coupon code 941612742)

On our way through the store I checked the Christmas merchandise marked down 70%.  I picked up 6 packs of outdoor replacement lights for a whopping 39 cents a pack and 2 big rolls of tape for $1.19 each.  The kid's were checking out the marked down toy section and we noticed a BIG foam sled marked down from $69.99 to $29.94. 

Here's the kicker.......I turned around and saw a sign that said all clearance toys were buy 1 get 1 free.  My husband said there was no way that this would  be a buy 1 get 1 free.  I told him it wouldn't hurt to ask.

Off we went to the check out and inquired.  The clerk said that the sleds were considered a toy and they were buy 1 get 1 free. The kid's looked at me with huge eyes and giggled.

I gave the clerk my Sears card so he could check the amount of Sears points I had.  I cashed in $30 worth of points.  The 6 packs of bulbs, 2 rolls of tape and 2 sleds cost me a grand total of $9.17.

And that is why my kid's think I'm Mom of the year and my husband thinks my mad frugal skills make me Wife of the year.

Too bad I waited until the last day of the year to be declared the best.  Sigh, I'll have to start all over tomorrow.

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year!
