Do you clip coupons? The reason I ask this is because I became aware that one of my sister in laws saved $175.00, yes, you read that right ONE HUNDRED AND SEVENTY FIVE dollars last week using coupons!! What the heck??? How does one do that?
I’ve yet to talk to her so I thought I’d ask you. I never clip anymore. I did back in the day when the boys were young though. I used to get a little thrill when they were double for anything under a dollar. Or buy one, get one free. I can remember when my mother in law would shop at three different stores a week and would only buy something at one store or the other if it was under a penny different. No matter what, she bought the product at the cheapest price. My husband does use coupons for my cigarettes though. But hey, they come in the mail. I don’t have to go on a hunt to find them.
But that’s a lot of money. Mind you, I would never go from store to store to store to store nor would I “look” for the coupons either. My time is to valuable and all that jazz. I guess you can go to websites and print them out. Wow, I didn’t even have a computer way back when. When things were tight and I was feeding two boys who were always hungry, I would go through the Sunday paper and clip them out for Cub and Rainbow which where I lived, were right across the road from each other and go and get the “free” thing of the week and use all the good coupons but I haven’t done that in years. That’s as far as I went.
I’ve also seen women like this on Good Morning America and shows of the like and it seems to me they spend all their time looking for these coupons and then going from store to store. I would never have wanted to do that.
Do you do this?? Do you know anyone like this??
