Ah, couponing.

Today I walked into a store to buy some avocados for dinner. There was a post offering a subscription to local newspaper. I hadn't subscribed yet, so I stopped to see if it was any good.

The offer included a one-month subscription for $8.70, plus a $5 gas card, today's paper, and yesterday's Sunday paper. I decided it was worth it and signed up.

The funny part, however, was that while the salesman was still trying to convince me, he mentioned that the offer included the Sunday paper which contained coupons. Tuesday and Thursday are {apparently} also good days for coupons, and his wife saves about $5 a week using the coupons from the newspaper.

My only thought? "She must be doing it wrong."
