It’s taken me over twenty years but I am finally there. Maybe it’s the four kids, or the one in college with one headed there soon, or the economy. Whatever the reason, I am now clipping coupons and checking the weekly sales ads. In fact, it’s the first thing I do on Sunday mornings.
But my family thinks I’ve lost my mind.
“Mom…..do we really need more cereal?”
Hey now, I’m just accessing the sales teamed with my coupons.
Right now in my house we have…either opened or unopened…..
19 boxes of cereal
15 bags of chips
13 bottles of salad dressing
13 boxes of crackers
10 boxes of cookies (Girl Scout!)
8 jars of spaghetti sauce
5 boxes of hot chocolate
4 boxes of waffles
And other stuff too.
So….do I have a problem or am I just thrifty?
My family would say I have major issues. But my fellow moms? What do you think?
