Over the last year and the half I have become the queen of coupon shopping. I never thought that I would be a coupon shopper the idea of me clipping coupons to save a few cents used to be comical. Until at an enrichment night when a sister showed how she was saving more money than she was spending at the grocery store and actually had receipts to prove it I could not belive the amount of groceries she was buying for little or nothing at all.
Now I am an addict it is bad so bad in fact that if I have to pay full price for anything it makes me depressed. Now I walk through Walmart and think are you serious who would pay that much for a box of cereal? Thats not a good deal. I have decided it is pointless to fight off my cheapskate ways, it is in my blood, I can't help it. It is funny it is kind of like those people who are really rich but can only obsses about making more money. It is as if the more I save the more I become obssesed about saving even more money. I come up with all kind of schemes on how I am going to get rainchecks from 4 different stores so I can get over 100 packages of free hotdogs, 20 cases of free apple juice, 50 boxes of granola bars, 40 pints of free ice cream.....the list goes on and on. The funny thing is that we live in a little townhouse and so food storage space is very limited, but does that stop me. no.
Next week is Quaker week that means it is the time of year to stock up on Quaker products 50 cent boxes of granola bars, 50 cent Life cereal. The sad thing is I still have a couple cases of granola bars from the last Quaker week do you think thats going to stop me? NO WAY!
