So, I go shopping, armed with a 55% off (one regularly priced item) coupon for the craft shop! This is so cool! I'm in a bit of a hurry, so I run through the store, pick up a book of paper ($9.99), two strands of beads ($3.99 each) and a wooden dowel (.39 cents). Get to the checkout, put everything down and hand her my coupon. Pay the bill and run. I get home and look at my receipt. Book of paper on sale for $6.99, strands of beads on sale for $2.99 each and what do I get for 55% off??? Yep, the .39 cent wooden dowel.
How's that for money management? Do I know how to spend or what?
But my point. I'm a bit slow, but I'm finally onto these wonderful coupons. It's great to get those 40% off coupons every week, but think about it. They put every single item in the store on sale for 30% off. I went three weeks not being able to buy anything, well, except for a candy bar for 40% off. Don't worry, it was one of those expensive Ghirardelli Peppermint Bark candy bars. I know, I know. Great use of a coupon!
I asked if they could ring up an expensive quilters ruler at the regular price and then I could use my coupon and she said she couldn't do that. It was on sale for 30% off. I think they could do it, they just don't want to. Even I know what a price override key is.
