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! :)
