I’m still quite surprised to hear these phrases from people when I’m out shopping:
- “That’s too much work”
- “I don’t have time to do that”
- “I tried to use coupons, but would forget to take them to the store with me”
- “Can’t you just do it for me”
My fellow couponers feel me on those phrases I listed and let me just add, that before I hear those phrases…the first question is always this…I bet you save a lot of money don’t you? Now if this quick little shopping trip I did this morning doesn’t get you going and inspired, I just don’t know what will. It’s always great when you can get something for free, isn’t it? When I say free, I mean you don’t pay anything at all, not even tax. Well imagine going a step further and getting paid…THAT’S BETTER THAN FREE TO ME! That’s what happened to me on my little shopping trip this morning! Check out my photo. I purchased 8 Whole Earth Sweeteners and 4 Bic Lighters, after my coupons I paid NOTHING! ZERO, ZILCH, NO CASH was exchanged between me and the cashier…BUT…wait for it…the cashier gave me a $1.50 Gift Card.
You see there are certain stores that will pay overages (gift cards or cash) if you’re using coupons and the coupon is for a higher dollar amount than the item that you’re purchasing. All I have to say now is…what are you waiting for? It’s time to stop staying full price.
Remember to be kind to cashiers and have fun using coupons!
