Truth is, I am not anywhere near being an EXTREME couponer anymore, and even more honestly only recently jumped back on the savings band wagon. I will for sure blame that little mental blunder on my ADD. I mean who in there right mind gets accustomed to being paid to walk out of the store with their groceries and then decides to go right back to paying for them. The horror!
However, after recently once again making the decision to become a stay at home mom, it became
pretty apparent that something would have to give, and I mean pretty darn quick too. So, I am back on the wagon, and giving another go at this coupon thing. I mean if I am going to live up to my Domestic Goddess title, I am going to have to do something pretty spectacular eventually so why not go ahead and at least make an attempt now (well not now, but later... you know like tomorrow)
My last trip to the grocery store won me a bronze medal, but my ADD is still not convinced that couponing is truly worth giving up all the time I use to do other super important stuff, like ummm... procrastinate.
So, of course I had to make an attempt at making this fun, not so much for me, but you know my brain well she gets bored pretty easily, looses interest and like to wonder off when left unsupervised for any period of time... So here is my attempt at coupon humor...
YOU MIGHT BE A COUPONER IF:
- you get excited for Sunday only because it means the newspaper will have your precious
- you take pictures of the groceries you just bought and post them all over facebook
- There are just as many (or more) grocery pictures on your facebook wall, as there are pictures of your living, breathing, HUMAN children
- You suggest dinner out, and one of your spawn says "Mom, must have gotten some new coupons.
- You plan your menus around what you currently have the most of in your stockpile "Well, kids looks like ketchup soup for dinner tonight"
- You catch your toddler playing with Odd items (like building a castle with 57 cans of green beans) because they were shoved under his bed.
- You treat you coupons like money (or gold) and have chased them across the parking lot
- When Wednesday is no longer simply the middle of the week, it has become Ad day
- When your sweet toddler tells the cashier at Walmart, hold on Mommy's getting her coupons since we are poor, and have no monies.
I could go on and on, but... I won't... What I want now is to hear from any other couponers or couponer want to be's out there in bloggyland... What about you? How do you know you are a couponer (or on the verge of being that crazy coupon lady) what are some other ways you earn domestic goddess gold, and save your family money?? Come on... let me in on your little secrets.
