My name is Chrystie and I’m one of the coupon bloggers that your wife follows on Facebook, Twitter and maybe even Pinterest. I’m also the reason, she’s been shopping so much! So let me guess…you think your wife has lost her mind because she’s got more shampoo than she’s got hair, a whole closet full of kandoo wipes (and you don’t even have a baby yet) and you are starting to wonder if there’s an upcoming zombie apocalypse because of all the Yakisoba noodles she’s bought lately! Understandably, this can be a little disturbing to those of you who don’t know the thrill of couponing.
Now before you go and check to see if Hoarders is casting, I wanted to let you know that she’s got a plan, a method to all this couponing madness so to speak and I wanted to break it down for you right here and right now…it’s called stockpiling.
I know what you are thinking…who needs 20 boxes of Pasta? Ahem..you do..and here’s why: (P.S. were about to get all sorts of mathematical on you right now, so if math isn’t your strong suit, bust out your calculator and follow along)
Let’s say you and your honey eat Pasta for two meals a week, and each meal uses 1 box of Pasta. Let’s also say that a box of pasta normally costs $1.29, but this week it’s on sale for $1.00 and better than that, your wifey has got coupons for $.75/2 making it only $.25 cents a box! She runs out and buys 20 boxes of pasta with her coupons and it costs her $5.00! She just saved you over $20. Now imagine she stocks up on every item you use in the house the same way…by golly, it’s savings all over the place. And you know what….that just means more money in your beer fund!
So pat your wife on the ass, give her a nice wet kiss and thank her for saving you all sorts of money!
