Have you heard about couponing? What is the deal with that!? I’m learning that people buy a TON of stuff by using awesome coupons where they get from somewhere and then re-sell that stuff online, at garage sales, etc. Or they stock pile it in their underground bunkers (probably) or give it away to their church.
Couponing, a short lesson
To learn about couponing I’m watching tons of YouTube clips. I think it’s funny that all the intense coupon people I saw in the clips donate their overage to their home church. I didn’t realize couponing could be a form of tithing. KIDDING!
I find coupons extremely interesting. Actually, no not coupons—those are just whatever. It’s the couponing culture, which is a new and interesting world to me.
Well, not completely new. My mom clipped coupons (although she pronounces the word “cue-pon” so I don’t know if she’s the best example) when I was a kid but I think it was not due to a hobby as much as it was a…well, it was the 80s. You know, recession and stuff. Four small kids. You save where you can.
But this modern-day coupon culture is a completely new experience for me. People collecting binders filled with coupons and coupon stacking and having stores pay them for the honour of purchasing toothpaste. What the what?
Last Thanksgiving I had the opportunity to learn a little tiny bit about coupons and how to even use them properly (apparently I do not). But I barely scratched the surface. Anyway, I found it interesting and as a result signed up for daily emails from Canadian Free Stuff. They gather all the coupons and whatever available in Canada every day and send you a little breakdown. It’s part handy part annoying.
Part handy because I’ve found some pretty good deals whilst browsing, like deals at places I shop already and bonus miles at places I go anyway. Part annoying because it’s a lot of email. A lot.
