didn't really see a fitting place for this in the available categories, but feel free to move it if a "Misc" or "Chat" section is created :)

I was just thinking today how ruined I am for 'retail price' shopping now.

Funny Kori!!
YKYACW you won't let your kids buy anything unless it's on sale and you have a coupon for it. And you tell them that all the time in the grocery store.

Oh my gosh, my eyes are watering!

YKYACW your 5 year old asks you "Can we see if Goldfish are on sale today? I brought my coupon with me!"

Because "just" having a coupon is not good enough - they have to be on sale too.

LMBO - I didn't read down far enough. That's exactly what I said! We're teaching them young!

OMG YES Laura - I told the kids they could only get fruit snacks that had the 'spoon' (betty crocker) on it and then the other day Sean saw a box of fruit snacks and said "we can't get this one, Zach, it doesn't have a spoon on it" LOL!!! I was really proud and kind of scared that he absorbed that from ONE shopping trip

LOL I keep reading here and trying to absord everything! I can't wait until I can reach these points.

I went to the grocery store yesterday for a quick trip because we had absolutely no dog food or paper towels (darn snow!) and wasn't prepared to practice all that I've learned here but I failed because I forgot even the few coupons I had pulled aside!!

I'll get there though. I'm glad you all are here so I can learn though!

OMG YES - peelies or the little booklets inside other products make me so happy. Two days ago I found a sticker on an old Kashi box that was $3 off of fresh fruit if you buy 3 kashi products. I JUST happened to be going to Target to get the 3 kashi products for my deal and then I got $1 blackberries to boot :) it rocked my world LOL (along with the 75% sale today!)

For the first few trips I took with intentions to use coupons, I forgot my envelopes at home or left the insert on the table. I was mad at myself, but then it just reaffirmed that I needed to figure out the system that would best work for me to always have them on hand til it became 2nd nature to carry them - so I stuck them in my purse so I'd always have them. You'll get there! :)

My MIL's old gate code (she just moved last weekend) was #2499

I hadn't been there in awhile as she usually comes to our house, so I kept punching in #1299

later when I told this story my friend said "OMG you even wanted to get a discount on the gate code" LOL
