“It’s So Easy”

You know what I’m tired of (besides wee people crying during the night)?

The news saying, how “easy” it is to save on your grocery shopping. True, it is easy to cut the coupons out, and perhaps use them on your shopping trip — but it’s NOT easy to REALLY save on your grocery bill.

Today, I got 8 boxes of nabisco crackers, 3 jars of mayo, 2 boxes of ritz crackers, and 4 cans of B ush’s baked beans for just about 10 bucks after coupons and catalina savings.

Sweet, you say — I bet it’s easy.

Well, it took me about an hour to combine my grocery list.

It took me at least 1/2 an hour to go through the store, talk to the manager and let him know nothing in the store was tagged and that I was shopping entirely off the ad, and then another 10 minutes when my catalina didn’t print correctly. I also had to have the balls to stand-up for myself at the check-out.

And I did, and I saved.

But it’s not easy, and I would guess about 99% of the population hasn’t the time, energy or will to shop like that.

Screw you Mr. Newsman. Oh, and same to you Lucky stores. I hate you (I tried to do it at Lucky and they just shrugged their shoulders and said I must have done it wrong).

    I figure that you have to look at it like a part time job with the money you’re saving. It takes a lot of time to do that. Time I don’t often have, and just suck it up and pay more for groceries. But it’s great when I do have the time to sit down and figure it all out.

    No, I’ve never thought it was easy and I’m always amazed at those of you who DO take the time and DO have the female equivalent of balls to do it! Way to go.

    I know it takes me FOREVER!!! And to figure it all out to get the very best deals…hurts my brain! But, we need to save and so I continue. Plus, there is that nice reward when you walk away not having spent near as much as everyone else!
