You Know You’re a Grocery Geek When….

1. You are ecstatic that the mail brought next week’s grocery store ads two days early because of the holiday.
2. Your kids know how to leverage for something they want: they bring you a coupon.
3. The checkers at the store recognize you and reassure the supervisor when they call her over to override your excess of coupons.
4. You carry a huge bag of coupons and sale ads wherever you go.
5. You almost cause your husband to crash the car when you shriek over what you see on the side of the road. A CVS is being built less than a mile from home!
6. One of your favorite reading materials is next week’s grocery store ads.
7. You know the coupon policies of every grocery store in the tri-state area.
8. Your heart starts to race at the sight of a 50 cent coupon ’cause you know your store will double it.
9. You can’t pass the clearance bread cart without buying some.
10. You have a hard time saying NO to a good deal.

Are you a grocery geek? How do you know?

    I love the “kids/leverage” point. I try to use coupons when I can but we eat a lot of fresh and here in Canada we don’t have the wonderful abundance of coupons like you. It is usually $1 off a $4 product I wouldn’t usually buy anyway.

    Tuesday and Wednesdays are my favorite days of the week. The sale ads come on Tuesday. My favorite coupon site has my local store’s ads up with coupon and sale matches on Wednesday. Sunday is my 3rd favorite day because of newspaper coupons as well as drug store sales starting!

    Oh yeah, I have the life!

    You know you’re a grocery geek when you arrive at the grocery store only to turn around and go back home because you forgot your coupons.

  5. You know you are a geek when your kids are excited that you are only visiting 1 grocery store on this trip, and NOT running to 2-3 to get all the best deals!

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
