Default Strange looks

Do you guys get all the strange looks when you buy 10 or 20 of something? People sometimes look at me like I am crazy when I buy 30 boxes of cereal. All I can think is why aren't you buying more. I get coments like "you must really like that" or "what are you going to do with all that?" What is the most interesting reaction that you have gotten? How many were you buying and how great was the deal you were getting?

The most frustrating to me is when people say yeah but I don't need 10 boxes of cereal now. And I'm like if its free or close to it and it will be used by the exp date why not?????? ESP if its something you use on a regular basis.

I welcome any and all comments wether good or bad. They are just words and people can think what they want to, but I try to make sure the people learn something new about couponers. I simply say I am going to eat it, share with family, or donate it. Coupons help save a lot of money and were not as "crazy" as the TV shows depict us. Give it a try for yourself and you might be surprised. This is the moment where I may offer a coupon to them if they have something I know I have a coupon for and of course tell them about WUC .

I usually only stockpile when something is free or I can get it for really, really low OOP. When people comment or ask, I tell them - I'm getting them for free. Most of the time, the person asking is intrigued.

Looks and comments are way to common and very unwanted. I'v gotten my share of comments. Like Roasted Almond I too am one to shoot back a smart comment.

Don't let it get to you. Like you said, WHY do they want to pay full price. I truly don't get that.

A couple of years ago, a couple saw me strapping my binder in a cart at the cart corral. The man asked me if they should start on the other side of the store so that they could get some of the sales. I told them if they were smart they would get two carts and split up before I added it to my hoard.

I've never had anyone say anything to me, but I am also a closet shopper. I just clip the coupons I'm going to use and keep them in an envelope until I get to the register. I think if I had my coupons out and a cart of stuff I'd get comments, but i'm too shy and hate drawing attention to myself.

Im usually knitting or working on a tap routine or memorizing my lines or some such while in line. So I get weird looks no matter what lol! It just happens to be that when I buy a bunch of one thing the looks go between my stuff and me instead of people just staring at me So Im a bit oblivious to it unless they are being really obvious about it.

Just me, Chrystal trying to save money to get through life in this crazy house filled with a bunch of furbabies
