I’ve been wanting to get into couponing for a while now. (Yes, I’ve seen Extreme Couponers. Yes, it’s inspiring) The rush of the game, the pressure, the thrill of winning…
Our local Sav-A-Life pays full price for the diapers and baby food it gives away to women in crisis. Our local shelters, missions and churches always need food bank items. I’ve been convicted about all the money I waste because I’m too lazy to work the deals. So yesterday I began what will forever be know as…
(I like to keep it original.)
Feast your eyes on $191.80 worth of … stuff.
For which I spent [insert drumroll here] *$41.70*
I feel like a boss.
Target is running their 4×6 prints for $0.10 each, you can also print a coupon off their website for $5 off 50. Making them FREE! I saved almost $15! Just on pictures.
*you must use the kiosk in the store for the deal (ps you can log into Facebook and print picture from there using the kiosk)
Second *BIG* deal: Office Depot has one subject notebooks for $0.01!!! Limit 3.
Unless you’re a teacher OR a homeschool mom… Sign up for their Star Teacher card and you can get –*30*– $0.01 notebooks, rulers and pencil holders.
The card also allows you to get 10% off every purchase. Saaaawweeet!
They let us sign Mom up even though she wasn’t there, we bought 30 notebooks, 18 rulers and 5 pencil holders. Our total: $0.58!!!
So, yeah… I’m hooked. $150.10 savings! Blows my mind.
On our way out of town, I’m still riding my high (totally oblivious to my surroundings) I pull over for gas before getting on the interstate and my sister, very nonchalantly says “I think that guy’s following us.” She nods toward a big truck with a big guy turning around in the next drive way.
I’m like “whatever”, we’re in a minivan with a Got Skills sticker.
“Why would he be following us?”
“Well, I was kinda checking out his truck when I realized he was staring at me.”
He pulls into our gas station.
I circle the parking lot… twice.
He’s still behind us.
I start freaking out.
We hop on the interstate.
I look in the rearveiw mirror and there he is, swerving through traffic to catch up with us!
I’m totally freaking now.
He catches up and we ride neck and neck for what feels like forever. Okay, it was like 3 minutes.
Emma keeps telling me “Do NOT make eye contact.” Yeah… right, freakiest moment of my entire life… I’m gonna try not to look.
Hands shaking, heart racing, we do what any logical person would do: we call Mom. “Ummm, Mom. This could be bad.” As Emma tells her the story I decide to pull into the police station two exits up.
Thankfully the guy gets tired of the game and turns around in one of those emergency vehicle places.
Now you people will believe me when I tell you my sister is too. beautiful.
She’s gonna get me killed. For realz.
