    Hi there,

    I thought it would be fun to state the facts.....Hi my name is Nancy aka jasperandchar and I am a coupon addict. I know this because everytime I see a tare pad I get so excited and when the tare pads are empty I get. I constantly talk about coupons and deals to anyone who will listen or is partly listening (lol). My desk is cluttered with coupon related items (scissors, tape, envies, flyers, etc) and I can live with that. When I drive by blue bins and I can't stop, I get frustrated not knowing what might be inside. And on my recycle walks days if it's raining I could scream....I absolutely hate paying full price for anything but somethings are a must...haha..I dream of coupons...and crave getting the mail...my mouth starts foaming (not really)...although it feels like it (lol). I'm jealous of some folks on here that have coupons from tare pads that I know I'll never see in my neck of the woods (tare pads for pop or chocolate....never going to happen)....I can wish upon a star.....I find my coupons in all kinds of places (coat pockets, my purse, all over the car (lol) on the counter top, at the kitchen table, beside table, bathroom). I get so ticked off when I go to a store and the shelves are bare. I get embarrased when my coupons fall over the the floor in a store....I get jacked up when going through the cash and act like a stalker when they enter my coupons, double and triple check my receipts (lol)!
    Post here is you are addict and your silly stories.

    Nancy

    OMG Nancy!!!! Its like your telling me exactly how I feel!

    My name is Steph aka scbpooh and reading Nancy's story was like reading something written about myself! I do go on regular coupon shops and take some of whatever pads I can possible find! I get very annoyed when i find an empty pad! My desk it is covered in coupons, Smart sources, Red plums, save.ca parcial sheets, envies, and everything else i use regularly for trading, clipping, and full filling my addiction! I have SC saved as my home page and have a constant tab open to it all day! Blue bins, well now that its summer again, they will be a weekly outing for us when were having a "lets go do something moment" and they turn into as family drive around the city! My 14 yr old has even climbed in tot he bin to retreive things for me! I stalk the mailman everyday in anticipation what what might be coming!
    AND i will constantly brag about deals and coupons to who ever will listen to me!

    OP, then you need to vote on your own poll!

    No, I'm not. I coupon when I can, not on anything I don't need.

    Yep...Im addicted.

    I gave up smoking May 21, 2011... only to get addicted to couponing since then. Ive replaced one habit with another (although I dont think couponing is unhealthy... is it?)

    I tell myself that having 40+ bottles of body wash, 60+ laundry soap, and at least one full wall stacked with toilet paper is perfectly normal

    I think I would have to say I am an addict as well. Even my two year old son points out tear pads when we go shopping and when anything comes off my printer (coupon or not) my son runs to the printer yelling I'll get the poupons! (yes that is what he calls coupons).

    I also have a 4 year old son who comes flying from all corners of the house when the printer starts its motor. He finds pieces of paper and says here mommy you dropped a coupon, he pretends that he has coupons, he knows where mommy's coupon folder is when he is asked for it and he loves it!! I don't think he gets that from me ... I often shop with large piles of paper-clipped coupons with my list attached and have things we use regulalry stocked in a special pantry purchased just for them. I get excited when the mail pile is full of envelopes, I ask my friends, family and neighbours to save me their coupons. I guess you could say, that I am a coupon addict!

    My name is Aimee aka aDavis1984 and I am a coupon addict!!
    I only started couponing in november but I stalked SC as a member for awhile before then, searching for information and ways to get started.
    When my hubby lost his job I was stressed to the max about no income and couponing helped us survive. I fed my family good on coupons and little to no money!!!
    I love finding tear pads and get beyond pissed when they are ripped clean by the time I get there!!
    My 6yr old daughter won't ask for snacks or treats she says "do we have coupons to get a snack?"(Lol)
    And my 3yr old son loves to find me coupons. Funny story : yesterday he runs up to me with a receipt he found on the floor and I say oh thanks and toss it in the garbage. He flipped and yells MOM that's a coupon don't waste it if you don't want it trade it (lol). I talk about coupons to everyone I know and if they think I'm silly I wait for something they love to go on sale and I give them coupons and sometimes even bring them to the store so they will try it before they knock it.
    My MIL gets coupons to her house for me, my husbands Nana gets coupons for me and almost all my friends coupon!!
    I love getting mail, it was great when I got it at 11 am. But now my mail isn't delivered till 6pm and I swear I check my mailbox 3 to 4 times a day in anticipation.
    I even paid for an app so I could go on SC from my phone with ease. Best 3 dollars ever spent!!
    I bring my book everywhere!! But I also keep a small wallet of coupons in my purse at all times just incase I do forget my binder!!
    I don't know why I haven't done this all along and can't imagine ever going without them!!
    I am a coupon addict and proud of it!!
