A Funny Story on Coupon Queens!

As I got to CVS on my usual Saturday morning trip, the store manager greeted me. I was looking at the local paper inserts to ensure that they had all 4 of the coupon packs in them. Well, they did. But as I was checking them out, she said, "I've got something to tell you that I think you will find funny." She said she was in a manager's meeting a few days ago with some bigwigs from CVS. She said at one point the big guy (not sure his title) said, "I just wish these coupon queens would show me how to shop and get the savings they do!" (my paraphrase..not sure on the exact words) Anyway, she said someone in the meeting piped up and responded, "O, but they do. Just get on one of their blogs. They will tell you exactly where the good deals are, the coupons to use, and how to use them. They don't keep things a secret." She was laughing at this point.
I responded, "You know that has been one of the many blessings of blogging. I have "met" some wonderful women, who, like myself, want to save money. There is no pride, no selfishness in this community. It's all about sharing knowledge so more people can benefit."

LOL! I have to share this on my blog. I will link over to you.

I share my coupons with the cashiers sometimes if I notice their face light up with a certain deal I get.

I've always wondered what the 'higher-ups' think of the savings we get at their store. =) how funny!
