On Monday, we bicycled to Kohls in Kenosha (about 28 miles total). This time, we actually went the way Google Maps told us to go (unlike the first time when I had 2 routes to different places and inadvertently combined them) . I like bicycling in WI, Kenosha has bike lanes on many roads that we used plus the bike trail is blacktopped in WI (unlike IL where it is a fine dust).
But the next to last road was under construction and we used the sidewalk for a few blocks. Another road crossing a busy highway does not recognize bikes so it doesn't change without a car at the light.
Kohls often sends me $10 off cards and often gives 15 or 20% off codes or a form that can be printed to use at the store. We bought about $100 worth of stuff (a sport coat, a shirt, a tie, and some leggings & top for my LW). I used the printed form and a $10 off card. The total that we "saved" was $208. The coat, tie & shirt were all on clearance , e.g.,so the coat was $180 originally but only about $50 on clearence. They also gave us 3 instant game tickets and $10 Kohls cash.
This reminds me of the ads that say "spend more save more.". Plus the cashier said if I spent another $3 I would one more instant game and another $10 Kohls cash. Saving more is OK,but the best way is to not buy anything not MORE!
Another thing I was thinking about was that now a days it is cheaper to buy another item instead of repairing it. That was not the way it was when I was younger!
