It almost never fails though...one those things happen every time I go grocery shopping. I admit...I used to coupon...a lot! I hated and loved doing it all at the same time. I would nearly have an anxiety attack with each coupon trip, because for those of you who don't know, you must get things just right. I would have a hot flash and be sweating profusely by the end of checking out. However, for me, no trip was perfect! I inevitably would miss something about the sale with the coupons and I would end up spending more than I budgeted for. Not to mention, I had way to much pride to tell the cashier that I didn't want an item if I got the SECRET COMBINATION wrong.
I thought that I could get rich off of saving money and stocking up on everything that I needed. I even had a binder with the baseball card keeper protectors with my coupons organized by type: hygiene, dairy, meat, breakfast, bread...etc. I found that I was completely addicted to sales...okay, I still am, just a little less crazy about them now...I was going to grocery stores almost daily and making my child suffer the consequences (and I would end up buying him something too). So, needless to say, I quit super couponing.
So off to Fred Meyer's I go to buy my flowers and save a few bucks...so what if I am cheap! I get an extra perfume bottle almost every month! Have a wonderful Tuesday!!
