The Mrs. and I watch our budgets pretty closely. We don’t buy much that’s not on sale, we make good use of credit card points, and we use coupons. Lots of coupons.
My wife’s coupon organizer is less a money saving log than it used to be (local stores stopped accepting expired coupons), but a visit to almost any store without something that says “Save 50¢ Off Two” is rare.
So when I heard of some company being bought up by another on my way to the grocery store one day, the above cartoon just popped into my head. (You’ve got to love a freebie like that!)
