I Love Paying Full Price Because I'm Not That Smart
I absolutely love thrifty/cheap/bargin hunting people, especially the ones who use coupons. You know, the one's I throw away every week cause I'm a moron and like giving giant corporations all my money. Last week I was behind a woman in Kroger with a beautifully organized box of coupons. She had 50 bottle of Gatorade and they were all going to be free because of her coupons. She had two baskets over flowing with food and was patiently going through her file box. I asked if I could stand next to her and watch her totals. I swear to you, this ladies' $386 dollar grocery bill rolled back to $74 dollars. I was actually cheering for her. She said she spent about 10 hours a week working on her coupons, as result she saved $312 dollars. Wow. My friend Cara is super thrifty too and always makes me fill out stupid forms on facebook then I get awesome free stuff in the mail. So thanks Cara. She actually has a blog about saving money and getting free stuff. http://thebargainhuntingmommy.blogspot.com/ Cara brags that she has 26 boxes of cereal at home so she can donate to charity all the time and she works over consignment stores like a CPA in tax season. So hats off to all you coupon clippers. You attack your grocery bill like a linebacker, determined to knock it down. It's a sport, a hobby, a passion, a disease I wish I could catch.
