I love coupons

31 May

Growing up in the U.S., I loved Sunday mornings. My mom or I would always make something delicious for breakfast. Usually pancakes, waffles, french toast, something like that. Sometimes with bacon. Oh how I love bacon with maple syrup. Aussies, you don’t know what you’re missing! And the Sunday paper was delivered to out paper box, attached to the post of our mailbox across the street.

The Sunday paper was by far the best paper. There was an entire section of comics/cartoons, whatever you want to call them. We called them “the funnies.” My favorite part though, were the ads.

loved going through brochure after brochure of shiny supermarket, department store, etc. adverts. Over in the U.S., they aren’t just advertising which products are on special, they actually have coupons in them with little dashed lines for you to cut around. I didn’t care if the particular product wasn’t something that I liked myself. It was the hunt that thrilled me. Any coupon I found that any member of my family might possibly like, I would cut out and give to my mom or stick to the fridge.

I still do that when I visit. I still find it extremely entertaining. I still get all fuzzy and excited when I find a really good coupon.

I like it when the ads come in the mail over here too. Except our ads don’t have coupons. They just let us know what’s on special. There is a “No junk mail” sticker stuck to the row of mailboxes at the front of our apartment building. It’s been there since before we moved in.  Needless to say, I no longer get my precious ads in the mailbox. Sigh (and sorry, but I don’t think the ads are “junk!”) Lucky for me Grandma saves hers for me to peruse. If there are a lot of good specials at one supermarket, I’ll go to that one. Sometimes I’ll go to more than one supermarket just to get a bargain. Fine, and because we live in a 2 bedroom apartment and I will go insane if I don’t get out every day. Sometimes twice a day.

But I still like coupons. Even online ones.

If you live in Australia, here is a website that offers free coupons: http://www.couponcodes.com.au/

Or you can get online discounts.
