Catching up with Coupons
At times, it was my child who watched countless hours of cartoons (insert mom-guilt) while I pecked away at my computer, working late into the night again. Other times, it was my house - unkept, cluttered, a total wreck of a home (exaggeration? Not at all.)
And the majority of the time, I neglected clipping coupons. Realistically, I didn't have time to shop the store sales anyways. There were a couple of times I had to shop for basic necessities but there was no time for coupons or checking sales. I recall holding a box of Minute Rice for $4.99 - not on sale and no coupon. I wanted to throw up. I can no longer pay full price for items without feeling completely sick to my stomach. And that's when I realized...this lifestyle has become an addiction. Literally.
Now I'm catching up, tonight I clipped my coupons. Whew. Relief. Now I can shop with a clear conscious. Grocery stores, get my freebies ready, here I come!
