I have been couponing for quite a while now. Now, I'm NO extreme couponer, but I do OK... Heck I HAVE to. We're a single income military family living in an outrageously over inflated economy. I just think it's silly NOT to spend a little extra time, clipping, organizing and planning. I HAVE watched the Extreme Coupon show, and although I'd LOVE to save 98% of my bill, I realistically do NOT have 80 hours a week to dedicate to couponing.
But like any average coupon clipping momma, I buy my Sunday papers and clip away when I get the chance. This past Sunday though, I headed out in pajamas in search for a paper on the side of the road , because I was on my own, and with two gremlins in tow and did not want to get out and drag two toddlers through a store for a paper or two. After searching for 1 hr and encountering nothing but empty machines, I finally came across one that had a paper. It only had one, and I wanted two, but I was exhausted and the gremlins were getting ansy so I cut my losses and headed home...
Only to find there were NO coupons in the paper... GGRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!! I was duped by the coupon bandit!!! Now, I understand we are all in search to save a little, but please folks not at the expense of others... Tisk Tisk!!!
