Controlling or overreacting?

I have been married for almost 10 years. Our marriage has a few problems. Both of us have things each of us need to work on.
Without boring you all with details, I just have a question.......
In your opinion, if you were shopping with your children at Target and you both agreed earlier what was needed at Target.
I had found a few (I think 4) items of summer clothing that were on clearance for our 2 children. My DH found me headed to the checkout, stopped me in the main isle and looked in the shopping cart. He said, "What is all this stuff?" as he grabs the 4 items of children's clothing. He stated, "We did not agree you were shopping for kids cloths today" and he grabbed the cloths out of the cart and started to walk away to go put them back on rack. By the way, our kids DO need a few more summer clothings and I figured these were each like $3 or $4, totalling about $16 (I price checked them on those red scanners). No, I did not check with him prior, but I am an adult.
So, he became angry and I told him if he walks away with the cloths I had in the cart and goes and puts them back, I am going to have a major issue with him and I feel that he would be controling towards me. He gave me a dirty look, walked away and put the cloths back.
What I want opinions on is: how would you feel if this happened to you? Do you think this is a controlling type behavior him doing this? Or I am overreacting? He did yell at me while this was occuring, again telling me we did not agree to do any other shopping. I asked him to lower his voice, people were looking at us.
Thanks for reading.
