96 Loads of Laundry & One Happy Dog

I stopped by Kmart for the first time during this week of not-so-super double coupons. I wasn't sure if I'd be met with some resistance from the cashier or if things would run smoothly. (Read some of the comments about other readers' Kmart experiences on the post over HERE). I was pleasantly surprised with an upbeat cashier who rang everything up with a smile.

I ended up with enough All detergent to do 96 loads of laundry. And, since we were out of dog biscuits before this trip, I also ended up with one happy little dog. Here's what I got.

All Laundry Detergent (32 load size) - $4.00
Used $2.00 off coupon from 2/7 RedPlum insert (doubled to $4)
Final Price: FREE

Hartz Crunch 'n Clean Dog Biscuits - $3.99
Used $2.00 off printable Hartz coupon (doubled to $3.99)
Final Price: FREE

Final Price: $0 + $.71 tax

Is it just me, or do you also have a hard time paying just tax at checkout? Do you get strange looks from the cashier? Or a pat on the back? I was buying a little summer purse with this transaction, so I paid almost $20. But I'm always a little weirded out by owing nothing or next-to-nothing. I really need to get over that, don't I?

I'm glad I live in Oregon where we have no sales tax!

Alissa - I would be as happy as my dog was about the treats if we didn't have sales tax! :)
