What I hate is when someone looks at me and says, "OH NO....You're one of those!!" I'm thinking--one of those what? People who likes to save money?! You bet I am!! I actually had a woman I know from work say that very thing to me in the store. I was hurt, then aggrevated, then decided she wasn't worth the energy and went on to enjoy my shopping.

I love that someone started this post! Almost every time I am in walmart I get stares, and people whisper. I had one guy ask where the cameras were bc he thought I was on "that show". I made it clear that I was not. After, that happened I had a lady follow me around the store asking questions. I didn't mind to help her through. =] I even gave her some q's =]

Took me a minute to figure out she wasn't just criticizing my wardrobe, she thought she was correcting my uniform. It took her asking about my name tag for me to to get it though . Note to self, will not be wearing that blue shirt and black pants at WM again.

Today at my closest Kroger, I was checking out the end caps when a manager asked me if he could look at my book. I was a bit hesitant but told him to go ahead. He flipped a few pages then told me to wait a second. He came back with the store flyer and circled the Banquet dinners and a couple other mega deals. He said that I should really use my Banquet dinner coupons and my Kids Cuisine coupons today because the sale ends this weekend. He then told me that the frozen dinners had just been restocked. He went on to tell me that if there was a particular Banquet or Kids Cuisine meal that I wanted that wasn't in stock to tell him, he'd check the back.

His name is Bill and he is generally the friendliest person I've met in Kroger. This isn't the first time I've found him helpful. I didn't enlighten him that I was planning on picking up 20 Banquet meals but just hadn't made it over there yet. Rather, I thanked him and finished my shopping for the day.

My book is set up using the Krazy Coupon Lady's category sheets. Bill suggested that since I seem to do a lot of shopping at that Kroger, I should consider setting up my binder by aisles. I'm actually thinking it is a good idea. I do seem to do a lot of page flipping.

Wow! That is a really great experience you shared with us. Not everyone out there is negative on the couponing and it's always better to give folks the benefit of the doubt. If they have malicious intent, wouldn't you rather find out sooner than later, and know you've kept your own integrity?

I'll stop philosophizing now. :-)
