Default It's a coupon thing, you wouldn't understand...

There are certain things we say, do, appreciate etc.. that only a couponer would get a kick out of. I've got a few.. please feel free to add yours also!

You might be a couponer..

If you have ever tried to inconspicuously search through the buggy coral for abandoned catalinas, just making it look like you are "wandering" for a minute before you enter the store.

If you have ever circled the checkout lanes a few times like a vulture waiting to spot the "perfect" cashier.

If you have ever picked that cashier, and been so totally wrong and it buzzkilled your trip.

If in addition to your coupon binder, you have a coupon clutch, filing cabinet, coupon visor, coupon wallet, and coupon dashboard in your car....and so on lol

If anyone has ever stopped you in the store and said something along the lines of " Hey......are you one of those extreme couponers??"

If you giggled to yourself when they did because you couldnt imagine stopping a random person and asking " hey.....are you one of those people who pay way too much for everything??"

If you've ever had a conversation similar to this:
(in shower) la de de da da dooooo.. uh oh. Out of bodywash.. "Hey babe?" "BAAAAABE" oh for pete's sake (grabs towel and jumps out with shampoo driping down) :stomp stomp stomp: "Did you not HEAR me? What are you doing anyway, ohhh...(stares at TV) are the braves winning?" I need bodywash can you go get me some??"

Husband: (grumbles..you were just in here.. did you not see last time you took a shower you needed...)

Me: "WHAT?? (shouting) I can't hear you!!"

Husband: Nothing, babe. Ok.. Nivea, Clean and clear..(orange, blue, AND pink) Nivea, ( OoOooo it has bonus lip balm) Dove, Tone, Nivea, Softsoap... dial........ nivea...geez. WHAT KIND????? :grabs softsoap:

Me: la deeee doo da dum "Ack, no not this kind!"

Husband: (grumbles.. well why do you have TEN of them..)

Me: (SHOUTING) WHAT??

nothing...


or a convo like this:

Daughter noticeably upset flipping through your coupon binder
You: " Hey sweetie... what, whatcha doin there?"
Daughter: " Nothing.."
You: "hmm, well... ya looking for something?"
Daughter: "YEAH, I'm looking for a coupon for a bike cause I know if I find a really good one.. you'll buy it!"
Me: "it's true"

If your kids/husband like to show off your stockpile as if it were a new car or something. "She's got like 50 of these and didn't even pay anything but TAX"
Kid's friends: "yeah... but why???"

If you dust and rotate your stockpile as regularly scheduled, but forget to dust the mantle.

You have ever asked for newpapers as a birthday/ mother's day present

If your kids run to the freezer section to see which icecream is on sale then report to you immediately "Mayfield is BOGO mom."

If you can spot a 75% off sale tag from 2 aisles away.

If you used to have dreams of winning the lottery, but now it's more like finding a pile of awesome coupons.

If you ever receive a call in the drugstore and the first thing your asked is "What all are you getting THIS time"

If you've ever had a conversation like this:

:Ring Ring:
"Hello?"
"Hey.... wanna meet for lunch?"
"Sure.. what do you want?"
"I don't care, what do you want"
"Ugh, seriously.. just, I don't care"
"Hmm, ok got any coupons for anywhere?"
"Probably not with me.. it doesn't matter just pick"
"Quiznos.."
'Oh of course, when I don't have my coupons"
"Sorry, Johnny's?"
"ok...well where is that?"
"Off the interstate, make a right...then..Do you know where Autozone is?"
"No."
"Jiffy Lube"
"No?"
"There's a Publix and RiteAid is right there across the street?"
"Oh of course, why didn't you say so?"
"Well it's on the left after you pass Rite Aid"
"Pass....riteaid?? WHY would I do that??"


If you purchase anywhere form 4 to 6 newspapers a week...but can't remember the last time you read the newspaper.

If your binder is like your american express card "You never leave home without it"

If WUC has the number one spot on "most visited websites" on google chrome or is your homepage.

If your kids are blinkie bandits (only a few per machine of course) in the grocery store and you couldnt be more proud..

If everytime you walk in with an arm full of bags the first question is "How much did you spend" The second is "Whatdya get me?"

If the question "How much did you spend.." No longer makes you nervous, but excited to tell the total!!

If you don't have the typical "Bread, Milk, Eggs" to buy list... but more like "Razors, Flyswatters, batteries, shampoo,scotch tape...

If while shopping you have ever received this text "Did you forget where you live?"

If even though bodywash or laundry detergent should never have to be on your list, they are almost every single week.

If you are on WUC so much MORE than you ever were Facebook.

If you made a "bull snort" sound at every line you read..because you knew it was true

If you just realized you did that, and it made you laugh even more..



*sorry if this has been done, I don't read every thread.. just trying to keep things positive!" Happy Day people!!

I'm Jessica..Happily Married to TJ Mommy to Lauren 11 Emily 10 --> <-- Allison 8, little Chloe 2 and.. expecting #5 in March
Me: Hey babe, do you think $1.49 for two boxes of tampons is a good deal?
Hubby: (laughing) Seriously? Do you think $3.00 for a quart of oil is a good deal??
Me: Ah, good point.

This has happened to me:

If your kids no longer play pretend house cleaning but now pretend coupon match up and think that coupons are money.

When my brother was my roommate....

I come home with oh, 4 bags of stuff from the grocery store..... bro "how much did you spend" about $11. You paid too much, take it back, LOL. me: oh, but wait till you see what is in these bags, to which he would promptly change his mind when seeing that it had stuff that he really liked.

But, I have to say, my proudest moment, after he moved out to go back to school 2 hours away, when he made his first trip to the grocery store, and he called me to tell me "I used coupons! I didn't do as good as you, but I saved $8, and hamburger was on sale so I bought 8 lbs and brought it home and wrapped it up in 1lb pkgs just like you do"

"Have you seen that show on the coupon people? Dave saw it and said those people are nuts, I said, you know your cousin is one of those crazy coupon people!"
