Too Much Spending at Kohl's

July 13th, 2018 at 08:11 pm

We just returned from Kohl's where we ended up spending over $375! Yes, this was a shopping trip primarily for our youngest daughter to get dorm room supplies. I'm not going to go into a full breakdown, but we primarily bought bedding, shoes, socks and underwear, a wallet and a several new shirts. My husband decided he needed jeans and my older daughter picked up a shirt and a body pillow and cover for it. I bought nothing for myself (can you tell who is the most frugal?)

We 'earned' $105 in Kohl's cash that we can spend next week. I think we will go back for towels and a couple other clothing items. I had purchased towels earlier this week at Target, but she has changed her mind on the colors, so those will end up being returned.

And in good news her future roommate texted that she has a microwave, fridge, Keurig (my daughter could care less) and a rug she can bring. She also has some organizers she can bring later (just not on move in day). We offered to bring a television and a couple more rugs, and likely something to put the television on. Oh yes, and a toaster! More than likely we will buy those items once we arrive as the back of our van is going to be packed as it is!

The spending is overwhelming, but I do know we have the cash and in the end it will even out. I expect our grocery, water and probably electricity bills to be lower once both girls are out of the house.

    Glad I wasn't behind you in the Kohl's checkout. I bet your older daughter was a good source of wisdom on what to bring and what to skip.

    Glad your daughter has a good roommate who will also bring stuff.

    Although you bought a lot, I'm sure you got great deals at Kohls and then the cash will help.

    I remember moving into the dorm for freshman year. We weren't allowed to have toasters or hot plates. Microwaves weren't around then for the common public. There wasn't room for furniture other than the 2 beds, the 2 desks, and the shared chest of drawers. My roommate brought her stereo, the mini fridge and had more than half of the closet. My little pile was pathetic. When we got there her stuff was in the room and it took up over half of it. I felt very poor. And to be honest, I was poor. I just felt lucky that I could go to college.
