I Hate Most Banks, Cellphone and Cable companies.

Posted by Rachel on August 2, 2011 in Lessons, Random Thoughts, Scores!

I’ve severed almost all ties to bloodsucking corporations over the past year. My top three categories of “predatory corporate evils one inevitably has to deal with as an on-the-grid adult” are banks, cable companies  and cellphone providers in that order. 1. Banks. A few months back, I abandoned Bank of America in favor of a […]

Defeated at Walgreens

Posted by Brooke on July 31, 2011 in Lessons, Shopping trips

Sometimes the coupons win, and on my trip to Walgreens, I’d say that happened. Planning is key with this stuff, and I tend to just sort of wing it. I check the blogs, see what the good deals are, check for what coupons I have and then head out. I don’t estimate what I’m going […]

Savings vs. Addiction

Posted by Brooke on July 25, 2011 in Lessons

Yesterday I realized I may have a problem. We were in Troutdale to go to the outlets (scored a pair of my favorite Levis corduroys for $15!) and Jared wanted to go to Harbor Freight. On the way, we passed an Albertsons and I literally slammed on the brakes and turned into the lot to […]

Posted by Brooke on July 23, 2011 in Lessons, Shopping trips

With no job or aspirations, Ben Graham took an extra interest in my new couponing hobby. Well, first he talked a bunch of shit, and then he asked me to take him with me. Since Ben is helpless like a small child, I agreed and asked him what he wanted to buy. “I don’t know, […]

Double Coupons at Safeway

Posted by Brooke on July 14, 2011 in Lessons, Shopping trips

So big drama in the Safeway couponing world this week! The wording on the doubler has changed, stating that only one doubler can be used per week (instead of per trip as before.) Honestly, I’m not sure how they’re enforcing this one, but I figured I’d better make that doubler count! I bought: 4 cans […]

Cheap Meat (That’s not actually meat)

Posted by Brooke on July 7, 2011 in Lessons, Scores!, Shopping trips

Since I got a good deal on Taco Shells at Target, a taco night was inevitable and last night was the night! I stopped by Safeway to get some Morning Star Farms crumbles and take advantage of the sale (3.49 each) plus my $1 off coupons, plus the extra $.50 savings I had loaded on […]

Vegan Couponing Intro

Posted by Rachel on July 3, 2011 in Lessons

Hi, I’m Rachel. Though certainly inspired by and supportive of Brooke’s latest obsession with couponing, I’m going to be blogging here from a slightly different perspective: that of a notorious cheapskate and health conscious vegan.  Over the years, I’ve noticed that I have the ability to remember the prices of  regularly purchased groceries at every […]
