This morning I posted about the fabulous $10 Kohl’s Coupons I found in my inbox. It turned out that I had received one in two email accounts, and my husband had gotten one too, so I knew I had to make it by Kohl’s. The coupon says one per person, but I used the shopping trip as an opportunity to teach my boys how to shop. I always try to let my eight-year-old son handle the money, when we shop for him, as I want to teach him responsibility and some money-saving knowledge. Today I let my five-year-old handle his own money and coupon as well, and he was beaming of pride. 
I have had my eyes on a pair of new sandals for my toddler, as the ones he are currently wearing has gone through both of his brothers already. When I saw the coupons, I knew I had to get the sandals for him, if they were on sale, and sure enough they were. For my oldest boys we looked at the displays, I let each of them choose a $7 T shirt, as there were lots on sale, and then I found we found an item on the clearance racks that they both liked. This way they both got to choose between a lot of different shirts, but they also learned that by buying a shirt that was on sale, they could actually get two items each.
