I Tried to Teach Her how to coupon
My Mother in law was interested in my couponing, after seeing all that i had stocked up. She definitely loved that i was able to take my grocery bill down from 600 ish a Mo to 300.
She is complaining she doesn't have a lot of cash, And asked me to show her how i couponed. So i tried to teach her.
First she is eating out like 5 nights a week.
I was like WOW!!! I can Coupon Us Dinner for a week, for what it cost you to eat out for 1 night. (You have to put a Limit on it, My husband and i allow our self 1 out to eat night a week)
Any ways, I purchase her 2 binders, inserts, ect... Also Gave her 2 Sets of the past 4 weeks of inserts so she will be nicely started. So spent arround 30$ on Materials for her.
And every 4 mins like a child with ADD she goes off in another direction, or goes and talks to her husband, lets the dog outside, gets some cake, then makes a drink.
OMG i gave her the web sites, the binders, everything.
She asked for me to do this for her, So you would think she would of sat down and payed attention.
I already told my husband, when your mom comes back and ask me how to do it again, I WILL NOT tell her or show her, I already gave her everything she needed, and now she has to figure it out her self.
