I love to shop!
I love to buy!
I love to look!
I HATE PAYING FULL PRICE!
I can't stand paying full price for anything.
Don't get me wrong I'm no extreme coupon-er, I don't argue with shop owners or managers, I don't even let on that I am not buying because its not on sale I just simply turn and walk away if something cost more than I think it should.
I know, I know who am I to say how much bananas should cost, or kids clothes or even crafting items... I frequently shop at the dollar stores (which if you have read my blog before you will know that very well...), at the Sally Ann for re-purposing items (if I can get it for less and make it unique why not!!!) and when I buy my groceries I only buy items on sale in the flyers (I plan our meals/ stock our freezer based on the flyers each week!).
It actually pains me to pay full price knowing that I could have possibly saved even a few cents by picking up that item with a coupon or by getting it at another store.
I recently learned that Micheal's doesn't take coupons for Cricut products... Oh this made me unbelievably sad! I left the store with my purchase because I needed it to use my Cricut (it was a cutting mat) but I was a little heart broken that I couldn't save on it...
Maybe it comes from having a frugal mom, maybe it comes from being a stay at home momma, maybe just maybe it comes from the deep feeling of satisfaction I get from saving my family money... I feel like it's my contribution, my job to save what I can for my family since I don't bring in an income. I feel like the least I can do is to try to save as much as I can of what money does come in...
