|~Granny doesn't have coupons, just photos, but she is still slowing up the line~|
She kept looking at me and smiling, almost apologetically, as we kept exchanging smiles, it seemed we were connecting,.... me with envy as I have always wanted to be this organized with coupons,.... she being grateful I was patient! By the time the cashier had finished there had been so many smiles exchanged that I felt like we had become friends, so much so that I could ask her a personal question or two.~grin~ I shyly walked over to this lady, and asked her how much she had saved, smiling proudly she said "it was over $100.00," Since we had become bosom buddies by now, I was comfortable enough at this point to ask her what she had paid for all those groceries, she again proudly says, "Only $15.00, but it takes a lot of work."My jaw dropped, you could have knocked me over with a feather, I applauded her for her efforts, she left with her head held high and a cart full of bagged groceries, I left with two bagsin hand and my head hung low! I have decided that I am now going to"embrace" coupon redeeming with more gusto!!
