But, here's the rub: it's a whole lot of work for these girls. And besides the fact that I'm lazy (not afraid to admit it), I'm afraid it would take the fun out of grocery shopping. I said, it; FUN. Ryan and I love, love, love grocery shopping. And we love Safeway where everyone is genuinely friendly. We love to push the cart together and take our time. The coupon thing would force us to different stores and 5 times a week to hit all the sales, and calculating how much each square of toilet paper would be if I got the on-sale generic with a coupon, and it's double coupons, so take that in account, and the bigger package would be how much cheaper, and where am I going to put all that toilet paper since I'm supposed to buy when it's cheap, not when I need it.
So, we'll stick with our boring ole, if we've got a coupon, we'll use it, and if it's on sale at Safeway and we happen to need it, we'll get it. Anything to keep grocery shopping fun for us. :-)
Tell me, how into it are you? Lucky (don't worry about it), Borderline (you clip coupons on Sundays), Semi-obsessed (clip coupons and do online coupons to your store card), or Hooked (you spend as much time planning for saving as you do shopping).
Although it is tempting. What I could do with an extra $200 in my pocket each month....
