Thank You5 Introduction and a Thank You To You All

Hi there! My name is Amy and I used to be an active member of WUC, mostly on the Meijer, Dollar General, Rite Aid, and Walmart forums. Last April though, my husband left to check out some hunting ground and never came back. For 2 days we didn't have a clue where he was or what was going on. After 2 days he sent a message to our *then* 16yr old daughter and told her he was leaving me, that he would be home late that night to get his clothes. I hadn't worked in years due to my health, and since he's left it's deteriorated even further and I've been give even more diagnoses. It's impossible for me to work. I've only received 5 child support payments since he left, and that was the month of Nov. and one week in Dec. He didn't like how much money there were taking out of his checks for the child support, so he just quit working and the lady who he moved in with when he left me, supports him. It's sad and embarrassing both, to admit that I couldn't even afford to buy a newspaper to get the inserts. -The day he left to supposedly check out the hunting land, he had left here and gone straight to the bank. He completely cleaned the checking & savings out.

I've just recently (buy renting a room in our house out to a young girl we've all known for years) got to where I could subscribe to the Sunday only paper for the coupon inserts. It's going to take one heck of a long time to get a stock pile built up again. Slowly but surely it'll get there again though. I can't stress enough how the stock pile I'd had, saved us through the past 10 months. We would've been completely sunk had I not had a stock pile of personal care items, dish soap, etc.

I've never been in a Dollar Tree before, but I'm going tomorrow early evening (well, since it's 3:23am I guess that would technically be THIS evening LOL). I've spent over an hour on this forum and have wrote down many matches that I'll hopefully be able to find. Thank you all so much for sharing all of the deals, matchups, policy, etc. <3 Anything that I can get for free or really cheap is a Godsend right now.

First, I want to say to the Dollar Tree forum. I'm glad you've been able to find some good resources. I hope you're able to get some deals from the matches you've found.

Second, I'm very sorry to hear about your situation. I hope with you getting back into couponing you'll be able to get back on your feet and provide for your family.

Don't hesitate to ask if you need help with shopping at DT. WUCkies love to help each other. That's one of the best thing about WUC - the community. I love my WUC family.

Good luck on your shopping trip. Let us know how it goes.
