One Last Kmart Super Double Trip - Saved 63%

While we were out today I stopped by Kmart for one last round of super double coupons. When I realized that the Ziploc freezer bags were only $2 each, I wanted to go back and get more to replenish my supply. I've been processing or using some of the free/inexpensive produce we've been getting lately. I shredded a bunch of zucchini for baking, froze blueberries, and baked with blueberries and bananas. When I use produce that's in-season, I save money, but there's no way I can use it all right now. That's where the freezer bags come in.

Anyhow... Here's what I ended up with at Kmart today.

Merchandise Value: $22.27*
Out-of-Pocket: $8.33
Savings: $13.94 (63%)

* There's a little disclaimer here. I had a couple of coupons & items mismatched and asked the cashier to void them. When she did, it took my total below $25. It still let me keep my doubled coupons, but it voided my $3 off $20 coupon when the items were voided. After a LOOOONGGG wait at customer service, I decided to give up on figuring out how to make it come out correctly. But I guess 63% off will do.

Here's the breakdown of the deals.
