I received the following email from reader, Nicole, and want to share it with all of you…
I just wanted to write to you and tell you of an experience I had the other day. I love couponing and follow your blog and try to jump on the deals as much as possible. It has helped my family tremendously and I am thankful to have this wonderful site to guide me!
I am all for using coupons as much as possible and would prefer not to pay full price if I can avoid it however, the other day my little boy who is in love with the Cars movie spotted a bag of pretzels shaped as cars characters. This bag, of course, was way overpriced but he was so excited that I got them for him. I didn’t think twice about not having a coupon. When another woman in the store saw this in my bag she commented on how she is an “extreme couponer” and would never pay full price for anything. I was somewhat stunned by her comment and saddened by the fact that her little boy, who is about 5, will not be eating those overpriced but special pretzels because his momma is a bit too engrossed in her coupons. I just wanted to thank you for reminding us to keep balanced and not go crazy. I think you posted one time as a challenge to miss a deal because it wont kill you 🙂 Just wanted to mention this and say that although I love my savings, I love my little guys smile a whole lot more!
