Coupons for real

I was never really a coupon user. It's a lot of work cutting them out, remembering to bring them to the store and remembering to actually use them at the cash. All to save $0.30!

But now with all the baby stuff, coupons are my best friend. I use them almost every time I buy groceries. For every two cans of formula I buy, I get a coupon for $5 off. I buy a lot of formula.

Last time I was at the store, I had so many coupons that the cashier had to call over a manager to override the cash. I didn't know that happened, but it does, and it did. To me.



  1. Thinking about coupons makes me hug myself and smile. I love saving thirty cents! The way I think about it, would you pick up a loonie you saw lying on the ground? My answer is and stock-up sales and things like that are loonies lying in the supermarket!

    I recently organized our second bedroom closet into a pantry, since we don't really have a basement space I'd keep food. I get real pleasure out of stocking up. Last weekend we went tothe local discount store adn they were selling Ocean Spray white cranberry juice for 54 cents a bottle (over a litre per bottle)! 4 Cases later...we're good for juice.

  2. You know, that's a good way of looking at it - I absolutely would pick up a loonie from the ground.

    I was thinking too that it makes me happy to have a spare whatever {tube of toothpaste for example}. It's nice to be able to afford (in money and space) to have that. It's a luxury.
