Before becoming a work-at-home mom, the word “coupon” rang a different meaning to me than it does now. Coupons seemed like a drain of time when all you were getting was 35cents off an item. I would avoid getting behind people if I saw handfuls of coupons in their hands because I didn’t understand why they wasted their time.
Now, fast forward to now and I don’t leave the house without my coupons. I admit it took some tome for me to get used to using coupons, but with trial and error, grew a self proclaimed “Coupon Diva”. I am now the person they avoid getting behind, the nightmare customer for store employees who don’t want to scan through the mound of coupons that I have, and the person armed with the coupon policy in hand.
