Some people make fun of me for using coupons, which I pronounce, Q-pons, but last night when I saved over $9 at Safeway, I decided it is totally worth it! I think this might be my record. The shopping did take a bit longer this time, as I wasn't really prepared (many of the crumpled coupons were at the bottom of my purse or mixed in with expired ones in my dilapidated coupon envelope). Thankfully I was by myself and didn't have to worry about the kids getting in my bargain way. At the checkout, I decided to treat myself to a 3 Musketeers Mint bar. When did candy bars start to cost $.99?? Wow! Anyway, it tasted good and was worth it. Now, I've got to go send in the 20% Timex rebate for Matt's new watch. Happy Christmas shopping and even happier savings!
