Its a hard and humbling period when times are bad, and these are bad times for me. Well, not to the extent that I have to sell my soul, but just enough to remind me I need to keep things in check. Which brings me to the sole saviour of needy times - the coupon.
You may scoff at these cheap printed stubs of paper, but it can do one thing most papers can't, give you real free stuff. So now let's see, what do I have - I got coupons for KFC, okay, that's great, the Isetan coupons should be able to get me some groceries over the weekend for next week, and I'm expecting more KFC coupons...so altogether I ought to be having over 100 bucks worth.
I also have 2 coupons for a personal trainer at Fitness First that I haven't used yet.
Come to think of it, I can still lead a pretty normal life with coupons. Isn't that strange? I just gotta stop buying gadgets and liquor. Then I'll be just fine.
