I Had to laugh

We have a couple of caregivers for my mom. One lives with us 24/7 for two weeks and she is relieved every other weekend by the other caregiver.

Well, it's hard not to notice a) my coupons, b) my stockpile, and c) my peals of joy when I come home with bags of stuff that I paid next to nothing.

Let's just say they wanted to know how I did it so I told them.

Yesterday my brother came by to visit and found the caregiver going thru my box of coupon inserts. He says to her "oh no, she's got you doing it too?" She was so excited to tell him that I was able to get her CoffeeMate creamer for 50 cents and that she will be buying tubes of Aquafresh for 25 cents!

This morning the other caregiver calls me to ask if I can put aside a few coupons for her!

I'm happy to help them out. They're wonderful to my mother and I can't help but chuckle at how infectious and fun saving money can be.
