    Chat COUPON CONFESSIONS! Spill your guts!!

    I thought this would be a fun thread to start and share some of our coupon confessions!

    I'll start... not proud, but I'll start...



    I cleared a shelf for the first time tonight... I felt really badly about it, and definitely do not want to make it a habit... but I felt it was justified since I truly am donating the items to tornado victims, so I did.

    Whew, it felt good to get that off my chest... who's next?

    I am not proud, but once I actually pretended to drop something in the garbage outside the Rite Aid because I happened to see a "hot" coupon I needed and I wanted to "dig" it out.

    I questioned my sanity afterwards.

    Lol! too funny Pasharain.
    I confess that I have unapologetically peeled coupons off of items in front of store employees.

    We were in Washington D.C. in March for a family trip. As we were crossing a busy street, I spotted a coupon. Since it didn't register right away, I had to turn around, dash back into the street and grab it. The light was changing and I just barely made it to the other side alive...
    Well, that may be an overly dramatic recollection, but it did happen. It was actually a tearpad coupon of some sort with about 5 different ones on it. Doritos, Sprite, and what else, I can't remember.
    My kids were mortified, although I don't know why - anyone else would just think I dropped something and had to hurry back and pick it up...

    On a sadder note, when I first started couponing, I found 12 Silk coupons on Ebay. $2.00/1.
    I used half of them before I found out they were fraudulent. Before that, I had no idea people even did stuff with coupons like that. Lesson learned. Innocence shattered.

    I'm thinking a lot of shelves have been cleared...with or without a coupon for the tornado victims. Don't beat yourself up over it.

    When my DGD who lives with us plays softball, I go thru the trash to get out Powerade caps for the coke points. I try to do it when she isn't paying attention.

    I will go to the recycle paper bin and get the inserts,even after the news paper told me that any unused papers have to be done away with and the inserts also..They guys there told me they have no problem with it as long as I clean up after myself.........some weeks I get lucky others I get none.

    I have my 4 year old twins trained to pick up coupons if they see any thats on the floor or ground..Its upsets their daddy for they will tell him thats mom's money.. aks then how we pay for things and they will say coupons and then money.


    Dont feel bad.. I am sure there is alot of people that say they have never cleared a shelf because they only took the last one or two of a item but thats still shelf clearing..I have done it and I am sure I will again, I just dont do it everyday,week or even every month. Sometimes we just have to for whatever reason..its the ones that tell a tall tale and say its to help others when they are really reselling or stockpile the item that need help. I know you saw my other thread post and know that I cleared a shelf of soap in the last few days but since its not something I do often do I feel bad about it no and it was for my stockpile..I feel like that one of few times I do clear a shelf makes up for all the times I missed out on a deal because the shelf was empty for what ever reason.'you know its kind of under the what comes around gose around' so I am sure that soon I will miss out on deal because I cleared this one shelf..LOL

    I've cleared shelves before. Although it's not usually a huge number of items, it has been 20+ bags/80 cans of cat food before. I really don't feel bad about it. That's what a raincheck is for. Empty shelves have happened to me plenty of times. And while it sucks at the time, I know I'll eventually get the items with a RC. I think it mostly evens out in the end.

    Another thing I do is stalk blinkies and take peelies. I won't take everything (okay, except for the Biotrue tearpads at WM last year), but I will take more than just one or two.

    Regardless of the reason, please do not feel bad about clearing shelves! The product is there for you to buy, so buy it. If a person comes in behind you, they don't know if it was 1 person who bought all 100 items or 100 people who each bought 1 or if the store just didn't have any stock. I clear shelves if I want to. I don't feel bad about it because I have found an empty shelf too. Apparently I was too slow to get to the store or there weren't enough for everyone. Oh well!

    Now my confession. If it's a particularly crazy day in my house with my 3 and nearly 2 yr old, I have been known to drive to the grocery store just in search of new tearpads and peelies.

    When I was planning my Las Vegas trip last month I googled to find the closest CVS, Walgreens and Rite Aid.
