    It seems I now know the trend. the person who distributes the flyer in our community, throws all the leftovers in the recycle bin, and now i know where. So this Sunday, I was able to get from the recycle bin 50 brandsavers and 50 redplums.
    Last time when the neighbours saw me picking stuff from the recycle bin, they asked their children not to play with my mine. So this time I played it smart, I woke up at 4:30 a.m. and dug there before anyobody wakes up and sees me. I don't want my kids to get effected.

    Anyways, if anyone is interested in a trade PM me, and we can definitely work one.

    That's awesome... I want to try to find more myself, but I am also only just getting into couponing myself... And you're kids should not be judged just because you like to save money and get stuff free...

    Some people are just so opinionated . Glad you played the three little pigs and wolf game with the neighbours and WON! Well done. You are a great Mum!

    Well clearly if I had kids I wouldn't want them around you either. What would I do with myself if you rubbed off on them and they learned to save money?

    Great find. I'm super jealous.

    I think the people who have made this comment for your children is an idiot...seriously you are very smart and knowing about all the coupons and how to save money is a + that this person will never have...so you are smart....dont even paid attention to that comment!!!

    Those people are lucky it wasn't me who they made those comments about, I would have been knocking on their parents doors to say that I don't want my kids around nosy, judgmental adults :p

    Trying to find more coupons to use and save money is not the problem.

    It's the image of someone rummaging thru a recycle bin that doesn't belong to her. It's just not a 'typical' thing to see for most people.

    I have to be honest, if I look out my window at 4:30am and see one of my neighbours looking thru my recycle bin.....

    I would not have the slightest idea why my neighbour would be looking thru my recycled stuff. For all I know, she could be stealing my personal info!

    I think it would be better if she knocked on my door the night before! I would just give the coupons to her. And what better way to get to know your own neighbours better.

    But yes, I wouldn't make any derogatory comments to my kids though.

    Just my 2 cents...
