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.
