That is so the truth!!! When DH was active duty at the begining, it was literally pay check to pay check, and with kids it's not easy! We were lucky if we had a dollar left in our pockets by the time next pay day came around every other week! I only couponed to feed us at each time I shopped, there was no money to stockpile back then. If it wasn't for cpns we would not have been able to stretch our dollar as far as we did. My kids of course never knew we didn't have much back then cause they always had what they needed, we made sure of that. And I think they still don't believe me totally that we were that broke back then, not that we are rolling in money now, far from the truth, but not hurting like back then. My DH has worked hard to get us were we are now! And as much as he teased me when I started cpning again, he is happy now that I am and that we have a stockpile started. He is even trying to find me new places around the house to put shelves. I have tried to get my DD24 into couponing but she just makes excuses like they don't have cpns in the papers where she lives in Florida, well I just don't if it's true or not, but I do know they don't have much, and they are living pay check to pay check. If she doesn't want to cpn I can't make her. When we went to visit a few weeks ago, I brought alot of stuff(bags and bags of stuff) from my stockpile to give her. She was so happy cause they needed the stuff! And it made me happy that I was able to give it to her!
The bold ones are the ones that are most wanted!
These are ones we don't get in my area very often!
