Sale On Lard, Aisle 4…

I have issues. REAL issues. COUPON issues.

Saving money is a big thing now at our house, so I am trying to shop with coupons these days. I even made a binder full of those plastic pockets labelled by month to organize all my coupons.

But there’s a small problem.

When I have a coupon, sometimes it’s such a good deal that I feel I MUST buy whatever it is I have the coupon for. And it may be that I have never used the item in my entire life. Some things I have never even HEARD of. And yet? The temptation is mighty.

Here, for example, I have a coupon for Crisco shortening. Something I have never used in my entire life. Something that does not fit into my current cooking plans. And yet, I feel strangely compelled to go pick up some shortening.

And here? Foaming hand sanitizer. Somehow I feel I MUST have this. Despite the fact that we have bottles of hand sanitizer around the house that I have never used, not once.

And HP Sauce. I have loathed HP Sauce my entire life. But hey, I have a $1 off coupon, so you just know I am considering buying some.

This coupon love is starting to become a THING with me. I am feeling a little obsessed.

I want to get signed up on all the baby product websites to get coupons for all kinds of baby stuff. I want to go to all the product websites and see if I can’t sign up to have them send me MORE coupons. I am trying to figure out if there are coupon websites here in Canada that send out coupons.

I fear I may end up actually spending MORE money because of the coupons, instead of saving money.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go make a grocery list. The end of April is coming, and I have a bunch of coupons expiring April 30.

  1. Anna, does using that save.ca website mean you get other junk mail or do you just get coupons? Because while I love coupons, I don’t want to be added to every mailing list under the sun…

  2. We use save.ca all the time and we signed up for all the free baby stuff we could find during the fall when we were expecting Rachel. Some of the bigger companies will send you a boatload of stuff so hit them all!
