    My dear Mother-in-Law bought food items on sale that she had no real use for. And then when her pantry became full of such stuff, she would ‘gift’ us with them. I once caught her checking to see if I had thrown out any of it. She recently passed … and this is my opportunity. (Pathetic, isn’t it?)

    Pluggers know that it’s better to have it and not use it than not have it and need it.;-D

    I’d always been led to believe pluggers were thrifty. This doesn’t sound thrifty.

    Often, when I receive coupons I know I won’t use, I’ll leave them on the shelf in the grocery store, right next to the item. That way, at least someone will save some money.

    I only buy what is necessary. Yes, that blueberry pie was necessary: absolutely, 100%, critically necessary. I am sure of it…

    I’ve learned to stop buying what I want, and buy only what I need. But, buying something what you neither want nor need? Utterly wasteful.

    Failed again. I haven’t used a coupon in years, although I got one with my last purchase of kibble and I might use it before it expires.

    Close but no cigar for me. I’ll by the stuff and will eventually use it. Dried bean curd aka dried Tofu – yuck!

    My mom. She would go into the market with a fistful and more than once she would be PAID. Post Depression era residuals.

    From today’s Comics Curmudgeon:

    No! No!!! I don’t care how cheap they are — a plugger would never purchase tofu, do you hear me? Never! Never!!!!

    As a fellow Pennsylvanian, I approve this message. I ain’t proud of it, but I’ve seen it.

    If you ever see a coupon (in a non-Asian market) for bean curd, let me know. Not going to happen.

    Coupons. Bah. Humbug. They always seem to be for stuff I either don’t use, or can’t afford even with the coupon.

    I do this once in a while. Not for the coupons but to try something new. It keeps things interesting.
