As many of you know, Sunshine doubles the face value of coupons up to $.50.  They recently changed their double coupon rules, however to only double 10 coupons and not on sale items.  Therefore, I have cut back my shopping at Sunshine A LOT.  I typically did ad matchups based on these double deals and would go in store to grab a few and do a few more deals based on what's in-store.  But it is difficult for me to put this on my list of 'to do's' for the week, when I am unsure if it will result in a decent deal.  Anyway....if anyone is wanting to do this for the Living,Laughing,Saving readers I can certainly do a guest post!  Just email me and we can talk through the details!

Saving - Shopko Clearance Alert! 4th of July 90% Off!

While we are on the topic of clearance, I will throw out to those that may have a Shopko around that we found some great clearance deals on 4th of July holiday items & a Zhu Zhu pet toy.

Again products and availability will vary by store, but definitely some cute deals to be had if you find it at your store too!

One of my favorite finds were these cute girl's socks (that can can certainly be warn any time of the year) $.33 a pair!  I found these in the girl's section.

I also grabbed a super cute wooden red, white & blue stars "Welcome" sign, but did not get a picture of it.  So you will just have to take my word for it...but it ended up being $1.19! 

I also took a swing through the toy clearance, which still seemed a bit higher priced, however did find this Zhu Zhu pet toy for $1.99, normally $19.99 (so a savings of 90%)!

Keep your eyes posted and share your hot finds with the rest of the readers!

Saving - Kmart Toy Clearance Additional 50% Off?!

UPDATE: I did find LOTS of toys on an additional 50% off sale at the Sioux Falls store as well!

I was in Yankton today and stopped in to Kmart and found myself swimming in toy clearance!  And the best part is that there was a sign indicating it was an additional 50% off the lowest ticketed price!  I found some great deals, ranging from 50-90% off! 

GREAT time to stock up on birthday and holiday gifts.  If you have a little extra closet room to stash some great gifts for those on your gift list.

Here are just a few *hot* finds...but there was just too much to list!  I'm hoping that this is Kmart wide and we can find it at other stores.  Please confirm if you get out to Kmart this week!

My favorite find is this cute little puppy (my daughter is obsessed with dogs!).  Reg. $26.49, grabbed it for $2.50!!

Trio Race & Chase Flyers - $7.50

Polly Pocket Magic Fashion Stage - $9

Misc Leapster and Leapster Explorer Games - $10

And of course, products will vary by store...let us know what great deals you snag!
