You know you’re a Couponer when…….

You know you’re a couponer when…

  • your stockpile looks increasingly similar to Costco, and, like Costco, you often find yourself lost in it.  In fact, you’re considering employing a stock boy to help out.
  • the biggest and best zippered binder from Staples just won’t cut it anymore.  When are they coming out with the bigger and better one?
  • you’re best friends with everyone on staff at your favourite grocery store.  You know birthdays, anniversaries, favorite colors, and allergies.
  • you get five papers every Sunday, but the best news is always found in the inserts.
  • you frequently insert the phrase “there’s a coupon for that” in regular conversation.
  • you can recite several stores’ coupon policies on the fly.  ”What’s that? You don’t take internet printed coupons?  I think you do! Let me refer you to your coupon policy…”
  • you’ve replaced your kids’ “Hooked on Phonics” with “Hooked on Coupons.”  It’s never too early to get them on your team.
  • you proudly display the bruises you’ve received from intense dumpster diving sessions to your checkout clerk.  ”See this bruise?  It saved me ¢75 on that bread right there!”
  • you have coupon parties.
  • you haven’t paid for toothpaste in over a year, and you have enough of it to last you for the rest of your life.  And your grandchildren’s lives.
  • you have a special pair of coupon clipping scissors, and you keep them sharpened at all times.  You used a coupon for those too.
  • you feel guilty when you pay full price for anything.  Even frozen yogurt.
  • you’ve actually converted others, who want to join you on shopping trips. “Teach us your ways, oh coupon master.”
  • you call in your order ahead of time.  And they have a lane shut down waiting for you.

    When your co-workers instead of asking how much did you pay for it they ask how much did you save and how many did you buy.
