Kmart Super Doubles Round 2 - $3.30 Moneymaker!

I thought I'd stop by Kmart one more time today. I needed fabric softener, and I happened to have my coupon binder with me. I also had two Kmart store coupons that I wanted to use. My cashier advised me to break everything into two transactions, because the register would only accept one store coupon at a time. That wasn't a problem since I didn't have coupons for the softener and a couple of other items. Here's what I got.

Wow, you had a great trip! I did pretty good too, but didn't realize until I got home I was overcharged on some clearanced dairy items I found, and that caused my total to go up. My before total was $74, and my after total was $11! I took my husband out with me for another round of doubles tonight, but mainly stocked up on dog treats! It was good to see you too, and maybe we can get together for lunch sometime soon!

Oh I am so jealous! Our K-mart does not hardly ever do doubles. I keep hoping and praying they will soon! Those are some awesome deals!
