Most nights I prepare a simple dinner without really thinking about where the food came from or how much I spent on our meal. But last night as I was removing the cellophane from the packages of free pork I picked up over the summer, it hit me. Free food. I will be feeding my family a free dinner tonight because of coupons. Whoop Te Do. People use coupons all the time. But how many people use coupons to score large quantities of inexpensive food for their families like I do?
Sometimes I feel like a total cheapskate. Other times I feel good about spending so little money on food.
And then there are days I sit and wonder…
Could I ever go back to not using coupons?
