You might be a Krazy Coupon Lady if. . .

Last month we asked you to finish the sentence below, and over 80 of you did! It's been my favorite post to date! Laughter, especially the ability to laugh at our own kraziness, IS good for the soul! So I couldn't resist asking again; maybe some of you are new, or perhaps others of you have had more funny experiences you're ready to share! So here we go again-- leave your comment!

You might be a Krazy Coupon Lady if. . .{you finish it!}

here's just a few of my favorites from last time:
. . . your husband has to get out a wheelbarrow to bring in your Sunday papers
. . . you have romantic dreams about doublers
. . . you sound like a mad scientist when you're explaining your deal algorithms!
. . . your husband is "pimping you out" to teach his friends how to coupon
. . . your coupon binder sits in the kid seat in the cart and your baby walks

Husbands do you want in on this? Yours were some of our funniest material last time! Finish this sentence:

"You might be married to a Krazy Coupon Lady if. . ."
can't wait to hear what you all come up with this time!

your man room (Garage) has been taken over by Tuna!!

Christine said...

you make your husband a fathers day coupon book and when he cashes them in, you say
"no, not right now" and then he responds by saying "YOU hate when stores reject your coupons, so there is no way you are rejecting mine!"

Eric & Tricia Freeman said...

you make a special pocket inside your purse for your scissors to go in.

The Barkers said...

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!I LOVE THE FIRST COMMENT!!

Joanna said...

you dream of having a conveyor belt from the back of your car to your storage room door!

cwalker said...

I have about 15 reusable shopping bags and I almost never come home without having used all of them and have some stuff in platic from all 5 of my stops on shopping day!

The cashiers everywhere recogize me!

Kelsie said...

Your two little girls are playing with their barbie cash register and your 5 year old says "That will be $700 and your 3 year old says "NO, Wait I have coupons!.

Queenbuv3 said...

..you think your heart would literally stop if you ever paid retail again!

Mary Clark said...

When your little girl makes her own coupon binder with the coupons I no longer need.

Lyle and Jaime said...

...you are sick of hearing "yeah you can eat that, it only cost 25 cents! ooooo and that was 10 cents." Followed by "want to see what I got for free?" Just let me eat WOMAN!

P.S.I am very thankful for the savings....

Josh and Keana Callon said...

you've actually made a "scrapbook" of pictures of all the coupon deals you have gotten.

Leslie said...

If you dig through your neighbors garbage to find their coupons!

Lisa said...

...you start blogging about the killer deals you supposedly got, not even 5 minutes BEFORE you pick up your Albertson's doublers from customer service!

(not I of course, but others)He! He!

Carissa said...

You neatly unpack all your shopping trip findings on to the kitchen table/counter to take a picture of before you put them away.

You keep a folder of these pictures on your desktop and name them with information on what a good deal you got... "Albertsons 5-15-09 Total $4.50"

Arin said...

You can't watch the Price is Right with your wife anymore....."Honey it's before the coupon price, not after-good thing you're not up there-we definitely wouldn't win that car."

Cornums said...

You dumpster dive because there is ten copies of the newspaper in a bag at the very bottom.

(not me of course.....a friend I know:)

.....give me a break it was a week with 5 inserts.

CheepCheepDates said...

the recycling truck driver knows you by name and checks the dumpster to make sure you're not in it before dumping it.

Michele Happy2bFrugal said...

Your Husband entices you to come to bed with Coupons!

Jen said...

You might be married to a Krazy Koupon lady if....your wife asks you to be her lookout while she covertly rumages through the neighbors recycling bin for thrown out coupons at 1 in the morning.

Sharee said...

Your three year old daughter says theres your doublers every time she sees a newspaper, and your closet has more food than clothes.

kimberly said...

You go into "coupon panic" when KFC says they don't take the coupon you printed out from there website. And you don't have another coupon to use and your kids are now craving KFC. You sit there stumped and not sure what to do. You can't pay full price that's insain. Your husband finally has to step in and order one of there specials of the week. At least it's a sale price.

Ashley825 said...

...people can't figure out how you can rattle off a scenario for any and every stores deals of the week, in order of original price, sale price, coupons, and RR/EBC/ect....but failed math!

Ashley825 said...

...you start finding better deals than your mom who has been couponing for YEARS and she reacts like a father when his son finally beats him at basketball!

So Sweet By Design said...

grocery scenes in movies make you cringe....Oh!! I have a coupon for that!

Jessica said...

...you had a nightmare that someone stole your (not purse,but) Coupon Binder!!! (** I woke up glad it was only a dream)...LOL...

The Barkers said...

If your six year old comes home from school with a backpack full of coupons he has clipped for you! (true story) All expired,but what a kid:)

Phelps Family said...

You sift through the newspaper recycle bin at work looking for coupons others may have thrown away, all the while acting nonchalant and hoping noone catches you doing it.

Lynne said...

while you are running your Albertson's loot to your car in the biggest rain storm of the summer and stop to pick up a $2 catalina for Scott toilet paper that someone dropped! Then lay it flat to dry and use it!!!

Karilyn said...

your kids no longer say 'mom, can I have this?' they ask 'mom, do you have a coupon for this?'

Lady Thought said...

You can't concentrate on your romantic date with your husband because you're trying to figure out the cost savings per ounce of your skippy naturals with catalinas versus the regular price of Hytop at Winco. (My poor hubby!)

You park at the end of the parking lot so you can scour all the shopping carts for orphaned catalinas/receipts with surveys.

You bring a graphing calculator to go shopping.

Satterlees said...

You refuse to wash your dishes because you don't have a coupon for detergent.

Shannon said...

you have your own cooler to keep in the passenger side to keep all your "finds" in good shape while you move on to the next store

nateandsheila said...

when... you lay awake in bed figuring CVS ECB deals for using your 4/20 and 10/50 coupons next week. :)

some really great ones here! I can relate to lots of them!

Jessica said...

When you have to call your wife before you buy her ANY gift to make sure there isn't a coupon out there for it!

The Crazy Heads said...

You start looking in other people's carts and handing them coupons for their items; nobody should pay full price. And yes, people look at me as if I am crazy, but they still take the coupon.

www.Vinyl 4 Decor.com said...

for a hot "date night" all you want to do is go couponing.

jennym said...

you check the Krazy Coupon Lady blog seconds before you crawl into bed at night, in the morning even before you fix breakfast for your kids, and several other times throughout the day...just to make sure you're not missing anything.

you have prearranged with friends and family to make use of their computers on an "as needed" basis...so when those hot deals show up, you don't have to waste time calling around trying to find a place to print more IP coupons.

the closest you've ever come to crying in a grocery store was when a young, naive cashier started pulling things out of your cart and scanning them in random order. ("STOP! I have a SYSTEM! This only works a certain way...and I had my cart strategically laid out in order of transaction!")

you leave on a family vacation and get ten minutes away from home, then decide to stop, turn around, and go back home to pick up your coupon binder...just in case!

Jessaca said...

you wake up in the middle of the night a realize that there was a way that you could have saved an extra $.17, and then you can't get back to sleep.

Misty McTexUs said...

You might be married to a KCL if you've ever found yourself going back into Walgreens or CVS because *she* went nuts after you said the Catalina didn't print. As you head back, be sure and mutter, "I did *exactly* what she said! Sheesh!"

Shelly_rue said...

These are all great.
My 2,5,8 year olds have to pull the blinkie's in every store. It's got to the point I have to say no we don't need that one :)
And they look though my coupons so they know what they can ask for in the store, and when I say know I hear "But MOM you have a COUPON for it"
Or Mom look a coupon lets get it it'll be FREE :0
Kids you got to love them and teach them young.

The Hendricks ID said...

If you know your favorite cashiers schedule better than he does.

The Hendricks ID said...

I just went back and read the last you might be a KCL post and realized we are all actually CRAZY:)

Maria E. Lopez said...

hahahaa this is the best post ever! i read all comments and laugh so hard.

Niki said...

if....you seriously debate whether to go to your family reunion because it's on a Saturday, you'd have to leave Friday to get there, and you'll miss the Breyers restock!!! Plus, the cheap coupons in your town come out on Saturday so you'll have to pay hugely for the regular Sunday papers AARGH! You're even crazier if this decision cancels your family reunion plans LOL! --Sloooowly raising my hand here...--- HEY! Gimme a break! I don't want to see my annoying cousins spoiled brat kid anyway! LOLOL

Katie said...

You know your married to a Krazy Coupon Lady when... date night consists of roaming Target looking for clearance items that coincide with her coupons.

LaRae said...

After a date night he sits in the car "to let his food settle", while you make an Albies run.

katesue said...

When the Piggy Bank change no longer goes into the Piggy Bank!

When you check your bank account and realize you only have $3.48 and you tell your friend that you can still go shopping with her and she looks like your nuts and you come home with $2.00 still in your account and 3 sets of s'mores!

Annie said...

when the night stock guys bring YOU stuff with peelies on it, saying, "hey, did you see THIS one?"!!

familygal said...

You discover your three year old is filling her sippy cup with Dr. Pepper
