Saving Money With Coupons (limerick)

At shopping my wife saved a lot

By using the coupons she got

Oh she saved a hunk

But later she thunk

Just what was this junk that I bought

Haha! I tapered off on that kind of shopping since I was just giving most of it away.

Now we need those coupons when buying Christmas gifts! Thanks, Martin, and I'm passing this on.

...yes this reminds me of Sally and I back in '82. We were happy then.

And although we were poor. Our love paid the rent.

I've stopped clipping and spending too much time organizing coupons. My time is worth more than the .50 cents I save. Good one, Mhatter

I recognise the symptoms - I'm trying to give up - but it's so tempting!

That's funny. I have bought things with coupons and then didn't have money to buy the things I really needed. Crazy. thanks for sharing.

The old saying "penny wise and pound foolish" comes to mind. Sometimes we are easily misled by our desire to save money! Loved this.

Voted up and funny.

I have a great idea. Go shopping and fill your cart with things you think you want. Walk around for a while and you will realize that you really don't want want or need any of these things. Now rip up the coupons and go home!

I clip coupons, but only for products I use!
