How I Spent my $20 in Kohl's Cash

kohl's cash
As the typical procrastinator that I am I wait until the very last day my Kohl's cash is still useable to visit their store and spend the $20 I earned for spending $100 during my Christmas shopping.

I immediately head over to the Keurig K-Cups section in the kitchen department to check out their stock, and see if they have any decent discounts. As I expected the shelves that contain them are mostly bare with only a few un-liked flavors left. I check the prices of each brand and proceed to see if there are any of my favorite flavors still available.

Very Yummy!
Becareful it comes out Hot!
I buy a 16 pack of Swiss Miss Milk Chocolate for the Keurig coffee maker for $11.99 I normally buy coffee, but this time I decided to go with Hot Chocolate, because I know the wife will drink some, and I have plenty of regular K-cups from Christmas presents.

I ask my wife what should we like if I had some left over money, and she told me a pair of jeggings. I walk around the ladies department a couple of times, but I can't find any jeggings. I decide to look at some tops instead and wander to the clearance section. Most of the tops aren't her size, but after going through what seems like all of them I find a blue paisley, it's been marked down significantly and is only $4.40. This is perfect I might be able to buy one more top for her and still be around the $20 mark. I go through the shirts one more time and find an acceptable one that I hope she will like, it's also priced at $4.40.

I take my items up to the checkout line and wait less than 5 minutes to checkout. I hand over my items to the cashier and after he scans them I give him the $20 Kohl's cash card. He scans it and tells me I owe $0.70. I smile and reach into my pocket and hand him a dollar. I complete the transaction and head to my car.

After I got home I checked and Amazon is selling the same package of K-Cups for $11.29. But I wasn't too bummed since I only spent $0.70 cents for 3 items. The best news is we are both greatly enjoying the hot chocolate on these cold winter nights, and my wife really liked the blue paisley top I picked out.
