Ever look through your coupons only to discover you got some great ones that expire that day??? Well, Melissa and I had one of those moments today. We had several coupons (many for free items) that were expiring tonight at midnight and as good little couponers, we said…….NO WAY! We grabbed the coupons and headed to Crest Foods. Melissa & I both got a basket and divided up the coupons to get the job done quicker. Our total came to $46.29 ($15.25 of it was tax).
Since we had a stack of Chef's Request coupons that were expiring we became coupon fairies, passing them out to the shoppers in the meat department. Lots of people got free or $.99 beef roasts today! It was so much fun we plan to do it again….we got to meet a lot of new people and it felt good to pay it forward!
I don't know about you, but it drives me crazy when I let good coupons expire. I bet there are some interesting stories about last minute shopping with expiring coupons out there and we'd like to hear them. In fact, the person with the most interesting story will get an envie of FREE product coupons! I'll post the winner on Friday Jan. 7th. Come on, let's have some fun with this one! Just post your story in the comment section.
