The Awesome Tide coupon lady

Posted Thursday, November 3, 2011, at 11:54 AM

I was trying to get some shopping done, and looking through my meager supply of coupons, I was pretty vexed I did not have a Tide coupon for the Tide that was on sale at Kroger.

I went to Kroger anyhow and when I was going down the isles, I spotted a Serious Couponer.

She had a notebook and everything was organized.

I mentioned how awesome her organizational abilities was and then I lamented over my no Tide coupon, she whipped one out! A 2.00 off one!

Where did she get these? I look though the papers, never saw one.

Is there a coupon exchange group here in Shelbyville? I would be very interested.

But above all, I wanted to thank the mystery coupon giver. Thanks for the blessing.

It was well needed.

It seems like the only coupons I find are for things I don't buy, or by the time I need the product the coupon has expired.

Lesa, you might want to leave a comment on one of Ann Haney's couponing columns asking this question. You can find a link to her most recent column at http://www.t-g.com/life.

Many of the serious couponers purchase their coupons from online sites. Many have been shut down do to the "Extreme Couponing" show. But there are a few still open.

Also to find a coupon or where it came from you can go to http://www.hotcouponworld.com/forums/cou... and type up the name of the item. It will tell you where it came from; including if it was in a magazine. I typed up Tide and the $2.00 off came in the inserts on 10/30.

I have tried to get the Sunday coupons, but on more than one occasion when I get my paper from the store, I have gotten home to find them MISSING ! !

It is pathetic that the mega coupon-ers are so tacky as to steal the coupons from the next person ( ar many other "next" ) to purchase a paper. I know that is not the norm for those who use them, but come on folks that is just low class and greedy. I am all for saving money, for using coupons, for keeping a budget - but it is wrong to steal the coupons from the papers you do not purchase. There I feel better now..... Happy couponing to all the honest people out there, and to those who stole my coupons well your mean I hope your grocery bag breaks on your way in the house ( Light humor folks just kidding about the bag thing)

Wonderwhy, that is happening all over the country. Another greedy thing that is happening is people stealing newspapers from people's yards and mailboxes after delivery. And stealing them from the machines, etc.

I read online somewhere that some cities are limiting how many newspapers a person can purchase (1 per person in the family). I haven't purchased a newspaper in about a year or so, but whenever I did, I always checked my newspaper to make sure that the coupons were in it.

I have gone dumpster diving too!!

There is a $2.00 off coupon on Tide liquid that you can load onto your Kroger card. Just go to Kroger's website, log in or register, go to digital coupons and load it on there.

Speaking of greed, in my opinion, that's what's wrong with our country now, especially in our government. Look at our elected officials benefits. I could go on and on, but I won't.
