I don’t get it.
The fascination with coupons, that is.
DH has been subtly suggesting that I clip coupons for months. Sometimes I do it. Maybe I’m just looking in the wrong places, but I rarely find coupons I think are worth the hassle of the search. Whenever I use coupons, I always end up with a lot of junk that I wouldn’t buy otherwise. Like the coupons I currently have for a bucket of wings and a dozen glazed donuts. Neither of which is conducive to my weight loss journey.
Maybe if we had a house with a lot of storage space I would stock up on non perishables. That’s what I need to coupon successfully, a new house. Think I can find a coupon for that? One with a pantry the size of our current kitchen, and a laundry room twice that size full of storage cabinets.
Sometimes I come across coupons for things that we do use all the time. Things like diapers and formula. It’s too bad the big warehouse stores don’t take coupons, because I usually buy all of that in bulk. It doesn’t make sense to me to use a $1 off coupon for formula at the grocery store when I can get a container twice the size for the same price at Sam’s Club.
Oh well, I guess I’ll never be an Extreme Couponer. But for now the search will continue. Here’s to finding coupons that are actually useful!
