So there I was, camped out on the couch; napping, switching channels, rolled up in a warn throw. And on comes a show about people who have made couponing their full time job. Perfect show for when you’re sick.
So I watched this whole show. I see the woman buy 96 rolls of paper towels, 78 boxes of artificial sweetener, 57 rolls of mint candies, 110 sports drinks, 40 bags of dog food, 25 boxes of pasta, 75 sponges, every roll of no-name toilet paper on the shelf, and 60 boxes of croutons.
Before coupons her total comes to around $800. Yikes.
After coupons she pays around $18.
Now this woman has worked hard at this. She’s spent hours and hours clipping coupons, organizing them, she has spreadsheets and circulars and literally does more work in a week than I did in a year of college (please don’t be reading this, Mom, and if so I’m sure I’m over exaggerating).
Back to the woman who spends 6 to 7 hours in the grocery store per trip. Think about that. Six to seven hours. She has to be in great shape, both physically and mentally.
But in the end I was left with some lingering questions and I hate that. It’s frustrating and especially when I’m sick and want to watch a show and move on, I don’t want to be sitting there wondering. So help me out, I need to know:
*Does someone who doesn’t have a dog see value in having to store 40 bags of dog food in their bedroom, even if it was free?
*How do I make this “spend $20 for $800 worth of products” thing happen at the liquor store?
*Most importantly, and this is the one that’s really bothering me the most: What exactly is she serving for dinner?
Ingredients (per cocktail):
2 ounces Whipped Cream Vodka
1 ounce Chambord
6 ounces Ginger Ale
*Fill a glass with ice.
*Add the Whipped Cream Vodka and Chambord. Mix.
*Slowly pour in the Ginger Ale.
