Topic Tuesday: Do you get the "side eye" when couponing?
Picture this. You make a shopping trip to one of your favorite stores. With coupons in hand, you're excited about saving some serious cash with all the cool promotions going on. You get to the register and ring your stuff up and hand the coupons to the cashier. While your total is dwindling down because of the coupon savings, you hear the constant groans and getting the "side eye" from fellow shoppers and/or the cashier. This is what happened to me when I went to CVS and did my mini makeup haul a few months ago and this is not the first time. It baffles me because I didn't have that many coupons, and my transaction was done in less than five minutes, so why be annoyed? Did I missing something?
I've said it once, and I'll say it again- I never leave the house without a coupon. I don't see anything wrong with saving a buck or a few. Now, I'm not one of those people on that Extreme Couponing show, but if I can maximize my savings, I do. Why the annoyed looks? I don't get it.
Do you get the "side eye" when couponing, or are you the person giving the "side eye" to your fellow shopper? Speak on it.
