Frugal Finds–A Winter Coat

This past Father’s Day, Sears had a deal–buy $50 worth of merchandise in the men’s department and get $50 come back cash to use later in the year. 

My husband was in need of jeans, so we bought two pairs and a shirt for his Father’s Day present.  The total was just a little over $50.

We received our comeback cash a few weeks ago, and as it needed to be used by the end of October, we went shopping this past weekend.  We were delighted to find that they were having terrific sales for Columbus Day.  My husband, who has had the same winter jacket for 11 years and finally admits that it is falling apart, was able to buy this coat, which retails for $100, on sale for $49.99.  Sears wouldn’t let us use the coupon for under $50, so we threw in some socks for $4.99.  All told, between Father’s Day and this past weekend, he was able to get one winter coat, a shirt, two pairs of jeans and socks for roughly $55. 

Here is hoping this winter coat lasts him another 11 years!
