After each big bout of coupon savings, I think to myself...
"Self, you should record all of this, 
so that you can see how much all this time-consuming work earns you."

But I don't.

The best I do is unload bags and bags of my almost-free goodies and say to Superman...
"Guess how much alllllllllllll of this costs."

It's not a game he enjoys.

However, if I kept records of what I actually saved each time I was spreeing with the shopping, and could actually show him $dollar$ numbers.... Well, then, that's something his frugal, stay-out-of-debt mind could romp in.

Anyhoo, as I'm gearing up to launch another coupon-frenzied shopping trip this afternoon, I thought of you, and decided to snap a picture of what is causing plenty-o-sighing over here. (Couponing is a bit like dieting - getting there sucks; afterwards - yay!)
I'm sure that after looking at the above picture, you'd rather just hand over your hard-earned cash and never, ever, EVER touch a coupon your entire life. I would, too, if I didn't save so much!

All I have to say is that if a full-on depression (economic, not mental) comes upon us again, then I have enough deodorant, razors, shampoos and cereals for all of us (AND I DIDN'T HAVE TO PAY A DIME FOR HARDLY ANY OF IT).

And now, I am saying to myself...
"Quit procrastinating and get those coupons ready!"


pS.... see that $11.00 Gerber check? YEP - It's for baby formula - for me - for free! I don't drink it, lololol, but I have many friends with babies who just might (their babies, not my friends).  ag@*%blg... all this couponing is making me looney!  :)  But coupons... don't leave home without them!  :)

I think it is awesome that you are doing that. I've been thinking about it since your first post and am working up to start doing some of it on my own :)

You really are such an encourager mom :)
