Yup...I sure did catch my coupon nemesis sleeping on this cool and sunny Friday morning. I've been couponing since about Mid August 2012. Even I know that when they say the 12/30/12 proctor and gamble coupon book will be out --- that means the Friday before the 30th. So on the way to work I hit 2 spots with free papers and scored 50 books - and then on the way home I hit a spot with free papers and scored 41 more books. So I have a total of 91 coupon books. I'm so excited - they expire on 1.31.12 so I'm going to have to move quickly on these - they used to have a 2 month expiration but I noticed they have shortened the expirations. Fear of Loss tactic - but I know for sure that there are 7 super valuable coupons in there that I will be using.
I'm actually heading over to fry's right now to buy 3 racks of ribs and I'm going to ask the store manager when their proctor and gamble event will be next month.
My coupon nemesis is a tall lanky blonde lady with a silver mini van and mommy jeans that sit right below her bra. She came to the shop and said why are these papers empty? I said Ohhh -- the lady in the porsche convertible scans those papers why? She was like a PORSCHE - I said yeah why? LOL I'm so messed up to play headgames on her...but I don't like how she drives around like she's self entitled to the coupons and I noticed she tears up displays of free papers leaving them for store employees to clean up. She would lose her mind if she figured out I had access to another 150-200 papers. Haha.
I also have a coupon co-pilot. My friend Monica who used to work with my brother and then I met her when I was doing systems IT stuff. I actually gave her half my stash last week and I will give her half of these if she doesn't find any. But we hit opposite locations on each side of town and then split the take. it's very awesome!
Okay - I'm off to talk to some store managers!
