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).
