I'm going to shop at Kohls more often! Erin did some back-to-school clothes shopping for Katie and Nathan last weekend (tax-free weekend in Virginia) and I went with her. She had planned on spending about $200 between the two kids, but right before we went, she discovered that Katie's dad had paid a court-ordered purge amount of $500 on his child support arrears that had been deposited to her child support account (she has debit card that it goes to). So anyway, between the awesome sale that Kohls was having, plus a 20% friends and family coupon that was issued for that weekend only, she saved over 50% altogether. Everything she bought, without the sale and 20% friends and family discount, would have been $772. She ended up only paying $321. PLUS she got $60 in Kohls cash that she can go back and spend between now and the 13th.
On the other hand, I suppose we could have gone to Wal-Mart and gotten the same amount of items for much less, BUT I don't think the quality would be as good.
