Really Dark Stuff

Kittens, I don’t even know what I have to say for myself tonight.  Because what I’m about to share here?

It’s really dark stuff.

It’s the kind of thing that will make you cringe on my behalf and think, Kat, no…

Don’t worry about that.  I had the same response.  I’m pretty sure it’s instinctual.

I’m also pretty sure that all of this means I’ve Crossed Over.


I know.


But when Marcus’ sister told us that she knew a couple of students who were selling them to fundraise, and I saw how many Indian restaurants had Buy One – Get One entree offers?

That book went from $30 worth of skepticism to 2.5″ of Kryptonite in less than 10 seconds.

How much more domesticated and/or suburban can you get?!

Next thing you know I’m going to be whipping out an applique vest and declaring it couture.

After gleefully flipping through the color coded-pages, I immediately proceeded to rip out a coupon for Great Clips and foisted it upon Marcus so that he could go get a haircut this weekend.

I have the app on my phone and the card in my wallet.

Say what you will, but I think it’s very clear that we are not playing games.

And you had better believe that we’re going to keep track of the amount of money we save using it.  The book alleges that there is somewhere around ~$20,000 worth of savings in there.

That number means nothing to me.  Actually it gave me a little laugh.

The way I see it, if it helps us to keep the majority of our dates at or less than $30, and we save $100 – $200, then I’ll consider it a win.

Do you have an Entertainment book?

What sorts of coupons do you actually use?

I’ll be honest, since two of the three grocery stores we shop at don’t have coupons, the only coupon I ever really use right now is for the free pair of underwear at Victoria’s Secret.
