After I posted my blog about the Sears sale this morning, I headed over to Sears with a budget of $100 to see how much I could buy for the kids for next summer. I came home with 6 shirts and 3 pairs of shorts, and a cute one-piece outfit for Pepper, 3 shirts, 2 pairs of shorts, and a pair of capris for Snapper, 2 pairs of Bermuda shorts and 2 shirts for me, a shirt for Deb-Deb, a shirt for my nephew Christopher, and a one-piece outfit for my nephew Braeden. The grand total including tax: $96.71.
Just for fun, I added up the regular ticket prices of everything I bought, plus tax: $380.55!
Money saved: $283.84! That's 75% off of the regular price!
Okay, how does this make you feel about the mark-up of the retail world? Hmm...
