The Mall…and other circles of hell

Wanted to run all our coupons together ’cause I hate mall shopping — much easier to buy stuff online.

You see here gleanings from three stores at Yorktown Mall:  CPS, Fannie May and JCP.  First store was JCP.  I picked up two value packs of boxers on sale for $9.99.  Cashier said I couldn’t use the $10 ’cause it was more than the item (and suggested I put both sets on one bill – hahahahaha).  I suggested PITA and I stand there waffling until the line behind us went around the building and out into the parking lot.  They raised the price of the items to $10.01 and I ended up paying a penny for each transaction.  So OOP 2¢.

Next stop was Fannie May to use up a couple of those $10 coupons.  Let’s not count these, okay?

Hit up Carson’s with the $10 coupon from today’s paper.  Picked up four of those K-cups on sale for $11.98.  Each one then came to $2.02 with tax.  So $8.08.

Decided to pick up four more pairs of boxers.  Stood in line for most of the holiday season only to find out that they were considered “incredible value or savings, or some stupid advertising slogan,” so I couldn’t use the coupons.  grrrrr

Went back to coffee section and picked up four more boxes of k-cups.  Finally get to register and cashier says that she was just told that the coupon is only one per person.  I believe her because she was the same cashier from before.  So paid for two – $4.04 – and went to another register.  Another $4.04.

Went by the Fannie May and picked up another couple of bags of candy – chocolate fudge with nuts.  Nuts make fudge a health food, so these bags don’t count, either.

OOP today was $16.18 (at least my candy health snack was less).
