As you probably already noticed, my little shop remains closed until further notice. I know, it’s sad.
In other news, I’ve been hearing rumors that the Extreme Couponers are hurting the rest of us Normal Couponers. What’s up with stockpiling enough salad dressing to last the next 5 years…or pasta, or cereal, etc.? I don’t get it. Too bad there’s already another show on TLC called “Hoarders” because that seems like the more appropriate name for those couponers.
I use coupons to match with items on sale and sometimes stock up on a few extras. I think I have 4 tubes of toothpaste in my bathroom closet that I got for free. 4. Not 400! I also don’t buy a lot of the pre-packaged junk that there are always coupons for. Anyway, Thrifty Mama, from the Atlanta area has a post about couponing that is interesting. I’ve never done couponing on the level that some people do, but I will keep trying to save money by using coupons on the things that I would be buying anyway.
