The Early Bird Gets the Worm
Get Out of my Way People
People shop the way they drive and it annoys me like crazy. I used to have a good system of grocery shopping so that I got it done first thing on Saturday morning and was home just as the kids were getting up good and DH was still sleeping. I haven’t done that in so long.
For the past several months it’s been more of a mid-morning shopping trip. And that means way more people than the handful that were with me at 7am on a Saturday.
I can’t take all of these carts and people in my way…some knowing what they’re looking for and where they’re going and others not. That just proves to me why I must get back to the early bird routine. Blah.
At the end of the day I realize that I just don’t have that fire for couponing anymore.
I want to save money and still need to, but it’s just not there. No desire. Heck, my body still hurts from last weekend’s big cutting and sorting session. And I’m still behind. I have to figure out something.
I still managed to save a little something so I won’t complain about that. Any savings is better than no savings in my opinion. I got some items I didn’t have coupons for, but were on sale and needed. I saved $32.40 @ 57%.
Not bad, but I’m used to larger savings especially with a coupon event. I get excited by the larger savings opportunities that come with Coupon Events, but the discouragement outweighs the opportunities oftentimes.
I won’t give up, but it’s not my preferred flavor of coffee right now, ya know? And I suppose, that’s okay with me.
