Chapter 13:  All Things Must Come To An End – Sort Of

We’ve all heard the news that the US Postal service is losing money and shutting down offices. Not on my wife’s watch, I think my wife and all other extreme couponers are single handedly saving the US Postal service.  Getting multiple coupons is key to extreme couponing and I’ve explained in prior posts all the “fun” ways my wife has accomplished this feat, but there is another dirty little secret out there.  I’m talking about Coupon Clipping Services.

Do you ever wonder where those couponers get all the coupons for 100 bottles of apple juice? The answer is clipping services.  These handy businesses sell coupons already clipped and organized. Need 25 coupons for frozen pizza, they’ll ship them right to your door.  I was worried when my wife began getting all these non-descript brown envelopes but she soon explained to me she was not a suburban drug runner only a dedicated couponer.  The kids also enjoyed these packages since it meant less scissor time for them.

Well folks this will be my last episode. I think the wife is starting to get suspicious and for some reason she seems to be on the computer a lot more lately.  I hope that my prior posts/rants/babblings about the being married to an extreme couponer has helped others out there learn to deal with this new lifestyle.  I may poke fun but  I’m proud of my wife and what she does for our family. Hard core couponing has meant life changes but it has also made us much happier and more money conscious.  I realize that it’s not for everyone but if your wife does disappear one night to attend a coupon class – read this series and be ready for the ride.

PS.  My wife  just decided it was time to start a coupon blog…..kill me now please!

The End.

    Thank you so much for this series – I really really LOVED it. Had me laughing all the way through.

  2. What? This can’t be over yet. 🙂 I liked it far too much. Thanks so very much. Hope you write more stories like this agian in the future.

  3. I use coupon clipping services all the time – it is a powerful coupon weapon. Some people think its illegal, but if it was I think companies would get shut down instead of increasing. I see nothing at all wrong with it.

  4. To me they are illegal and just plain wrong Sandra. Its like they are wording things to get around the law. I don’t like it at all. I refuse to use them and I would consider myself an extreme couponer.

  5. I loved So I Married A Couponer! Thanks.

  6. My favorite –Chapter 2: What do you mean I’m not allowed to go shopping anymore?
    Thanks for an entertaining series
    –from a MALE couponer

    • Thanks Chris! Did you like the male couponer, loch-ness monster one, or did you find it irritated you? Have you personally seen a lot of guy couponers around…or do you think you are also a rarity?
