Are we coupon snobs?
Have we been so spoiled by coupons that we have become oblivous to the fact that food does cost money?
DH and I have been round and round about this. We ran out of Miracle Whip the other day and because there has not been a coupon or a sale on it, we are completely out. I am going to have pay full retail for this product, and I don't have a choice! Shame on me I guess for letting us run out, but because that product is not on a regular sales cycle, and coupons are rare.... I don't think to get it.
I was reading the Kraft Breadcrumbs thread, and a few mentioned not ever paying .50 cent or so for that product. I thought that before I tried it, but now that we like it, and if DH requested, and I didn't have a coupon, or it wasn't on sale... Would I not get it?
I don't know what I am really trying to say. I just now DH has become a little frustrated with me because sometimes stuff runs out that I don't have qs for, and I bellyache about paying full price...... Or the kids have to wait until I have a coupon for Pop Tarts before I buy more.
Do you allow room in your grocery budgeting for items with no coupons, and what do you about non sale item requests from your family? I just don't want to be some uptight biznatch, and frustrate my family...
Anyone feel me?
