Well, I want to be one of those people. Not the dumpster diving, 400 bottles of shampoo people, but I wanna get the most amount of things for the least amount of money. Who doesn't want to do that? So I've tried. I've posted some pictures on FB of deals I have gotten. I've been branching out to other stores like Walgreens and today, Walmart.
And what's awesome is that Timmy seems to have picked up the coupon hunt. He sees a coupon and runs to me...MOMMY! I FOUND A COUPON! or Mom can we buy some fruit snacks? Do you have a coupon for that?
Yesterday he took a dollar bill out of my car. He came inside and was telling Dave all about how he got candy and we were gonna go to the movies and so on and so on. The conversation then continued as follows:
Dave: Did you buy me anything?
Dave: why not? When I go somewhere I always have to buy you something. That's not fair.
Timmy: I have one dollar. I'll buy you something at Walmart tomorrow.
Dave: like what?
Timmy: I don't know. Can I have that dollar so I can have 2 dollars. I'll buy you three things with my 2 dollars.
Dave: OK, three things? What are you gonna get?
Timmy: Sprite and Megamind.
Me: We can't get Megamind for 2 bucks dude...
Timmy: Dad can I have that other dollar.
Dave: No, I need that for my diet coke.
Timmy: Well I'll buy you diet coke.
Me: How bout if Timmy goes to Walmart and gets 3 things for 2 dollars then Dad owes Timmy one dollar.
So this morning, the kids and I head out to Walmart. Timmy said we needed to bring along my coupons and he needed to buy Dad some Sprite. So we looked around. We looked through my coupons, we compared prices, we picked things up and put them back. We bargain hunted. And in the end....Timmy wins!

So proud of my kiddo. The cashier was pretty surprised too. Timmy was so excited in the cart, handing her his $2.00. So just think people, if a 4 year old can coupon, you can too!!!!
