The golden rule of couponing. A.K.A. ~ Learn from my mistakes!

couponing golden rule

I am about to teach you a very valuable lesson in couponing. Very.valuable. Are you ready?

When there is a $5/1 coupon on a certain item, making said item free after the use of this coupon, DO NOT – under any circumstances — wait until THURSDAY AFTERNOON to schlep out two-of-your-three children in a coupon crazed tour of not-one-but-TWO Targets… AND a Walmart.

Yes, I know those eight coupons your husband so sweetly printed out for you are burning a hole in your pocket. But your children need lunch. Even more than you need to restock your gift bin. Trust me.

And besides, those Pictureka and Travel Hungry Hippos games have clearly been sold out since Tuesday. Possibly Monday.



Thank you, Joelene! She made my Pictureka image up there all cute for me!


  1. I went looking for the hungry hippo and searched FOREVER. but atleast I was by myself. Hugs to your kiddies ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Oh so been there ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. not sure how long the coupons are good for, but Target will give you a rain check for items out of stock – at the sale price.

  4. So all those games are sold out?? I was “supposed to” go today, but ran out of time running all my other errands first. Guess I don’t have to go now? Not sure if I’m happy or bummed about that. ๐Ÿ™‚
