I got this amazing comment from a guy named Mike on a recent post:
I have to disagree with all those who rail against coupons. My wife has the last 4 months of inserts filed in our filing cabinet with a spreadsheet that she downloads that inventories the contents of each weeks insert. She then compares our grocery list to the coupon inventory, pulls the correct coupons and goes shopping. the best savings are on the staples we use (cereal, shampoo, etc..). Our monthly grocery bill for a family of 4 is ~$320.
I swear to god, as much as I make jokes about cutting coupons, I would like to first meet this person, then marry her.
Ok, let’s play a game. Who is this person? Where does she live? What is her job? Her husband’s job)? What life experiences brought her to such a level of mastery?
Let’s all just stipulate that she is Asian (who else would be so diligent?). The rest is fair game. Have at it in the comments.
We can all learn something from my future wife.
