Yep, I'm Aggressive

I don't have any deals to share with y'all today -- CVS is lame for the week and I've been busy all day with freelance writing. But I did want to log on and say:
1) My in-laws came over Saturday, and now I probably won' t have to grocery shop this week. They brought lunch, and left in my fridge about THREE POUNDS of various coldcuts, the same in various sliced cheeses, a carton of chicken salad, a huge Zip Loc of sliced vegetables, a tupperware of sliced fruit, a jar of pickles, a large bowl of olives, two unopened bags of chips, a carton of dip, and a few rolls. I LOVE MY IN-LAWS! In a household that usually deems lunch meats too pricey, we are in brown bag heaven. And these are from their FANCY grocery store too, where they go on special occasions.
2) Yesterday we took the kids to a water park for a birthday celebration, and there was a Sunday paper left spread out on a table in the restaurant area. I took the coupons. My husband was a little shocked. "Wow, you're aggressive," he said.
Damn straight, baby. How you think I feed you guys so well on $80 a week?

Just wondered if you had seen the post about the Mylanta over on Money Saving Mom. The Ultimate Cherry Flavor is on clearance for about $3.65, and is printing $3 ECB's. Add to that the coupons that have been abounding for it lately (I don't know if you got it, but I had $3/1 in my 12/14 RP, and $4/2 in 1/4 RP), and you have a money maker! Limit 5. Enjoy!

Dang right you took the coupons!

And yes, in-laws (and parents) are like a never-ending gravy train!

so funny because I was out at a little greasy spoon restaurant a few months ago and saw a Sunday paper left in a booth that was totally spread out. I saw all the sale ads picked through and the coupons right on top. I waited our entire meal thinking someone would come back for them or an employee would come scoop them up. Nobody did, on my way out I mentioned it to the cashier and she said "they come to the restaurant take them if you will use them" whoo hooo

I would *totally* raid an abandoned newspaper for coupons... in fact every time I see a paper laying somewhere I sneak a look to make sure it isn't Sunday edition, for that very purpose...
