My family pokes fun at me because I won’t go shopping without searching for coupons. I make a point of telling them just how much I save each time I employ said coupons. And yet they still poke fun. I’m obsessed with never paying full price for clothing or shoes or pretty much anything but groceries. I don’t clip grocery coupons, that’s way too tedious.
Here’s the thing. I’m not cheap I’m frugal. There’s a difference. I’ll spend money on quality items but I do my research and if I can find a coupon I’ll use it. I won’t even enter a Bed, Bath & Beyond without multiple coupons. When I moved my daughter into her first apartment we drove about twenty minutes to the BB&B. As we were getting out of the car I looked for my coveted “20% off Total Purchase” coupon I had been saving for this specific shopping event. I couldn’t find it and started freaking out. I made us drive all the way back to her apartment to find it. She thought I was crazy – and maybe I am just a little – but I saved about $120 on that particular haul.
