Making Cents.....

Coupons Pictures, Images and Photos

It's finally all making sense to me.
I always wondered why people used coupons and now it all makes sense to me. It's not that there being cheap, or don't have the money to pay for it, in fact they are just being smart. I'm guilty! I was always the one to get stuck behind a coupon clipper and I hated it. My thoughts were.... is she really saving, can this take any longer than it already is, is it too late for me to move to another lane, GOOD GRIEF how many coupons does this lady have?.......yup that was me. Now I'm the one clipping coupons and looking for all the good sales.
Well, today I met my hubby for lunch. Told him all about the sales going on today. I was pumped! I had done my research and was ready to hit the stores. And that I did! With my purse and coupons in one hand and my little one on the other, I walked into each store ONLY buying the sales items I had coupons for. My friend was shocked as I paid for all my items and I have to admit so was I. I've used coupons before but not faithfully. I saved more than half then what I should of paid. It was actually fun! I can't wait for next time.

What I was really excited for: Maybelline lip stick - Original price 9.99 Sale price 3.99 My coupon $2.00 - I paid 1.99 YAY!!!

You know, I think I'm going to start clipping coupons too. I admit, I had the same mentality when I see people using them!! But, you're's just being smart! Especially now, the way our economy is going, coupons are the way to go! Thanks for the reminder!!

Hi Stacy, the flags are displayed by a store and I think they had to take down that flag because they only have the american and australian flag out there but not that other one LOL.
