So last night, my boyfriend and I were enjoying walk around the city during a unseasonably warm night, holding hands and laughing (we really make each other laugh) and out of the corner of my eye…I spotted a recycling bin. It’s trash night in my neighborhood…so all the bins were out! And don’t I just spy a Sunday paper sticking out of the bin! I immediately quit paying attention to the conversation and like a hawk descending on its prey, quickly bend down and dug through the bin…and lo and behold I find two coupon inserts! You would’ve thought I won the lottery…I was so excited, it’s all that I could talk about the entire walk home. (I have issues..I know this ;)
Two I Love to Gossip readers have also shared some lucky stories of finding coupon inserts during the last week:
I just had to tell u about my find. Talking over coffee at this morning, a couple brought me to the recycle newspaper barrels. I got hundreds and hundreds of flyers.
Just had to share with you my extreme dumpster diving today! I stopped on my way home to drop off the recyclables and low and behold…in the bottom of the dumpster were two bundles of the newspapers! I was so excited I ran home and grabbed my garden hoe to go back to the dumpster to grab the bundles. Was successful at getting the first bundle and on the second bundle I dropped by garden hoe in the dumpster. Dang! Ran back home (about 1 mile away) grabbed my garden rake and a pail and back to the dumpster I go to hopefully nab the hoe from the bottom of the dumpster and maybe the 2nd bundle! SUCCESS. Got both. Ended up with 20 RP 4/10; 18 PG and 18 SS from 4/3!!!! My hubby thinks I am wacked out of my mind dumpster diving like that! I say FREE $$$$ and use gloves and an old sweatshirt, so no prob!
