Nothing to do with writing whatsoever.
Just reporting that I spent $5 for four boxes of cereal today, using coupons and sales. I think this is called “coupon stacking,” if I am not mistaken.
The “Extreme Couponing” has gotten to me. I have just seen clips on YouTube but these people are crazy and now I want a piece of the action. So I spent about an hour (okaymaybemore) researching coupons and loading them via the interweb onto my Kroger pluscard and then walked out tonight with four boxes for $5.
Don’t do the math about how much time I spent to save that precious few dollars that I did because that will ruin my joy. Sometimes I just get compulsive about things and the time just flies by while I research coupon stacking and abbreviations such as OOP (Out of Pocket) and CRT (Cash Register Tape). Give me a week and I bet the frenzy will have passed.
But in the meantime, this is what I’m working toward:
What? What? Is it sooo wrong to crave seven years’ worth of Corn Flakes, lined up neatly in my closet?
Watch this and tell me you don’t want to clip one or two yourself.
