This is how it all started.
Just a small billfold type coupon keeper and me. We had a great relationship.
It fit perfectly in my purse and traveled with me everywhere. Even to baby showers and wedding showers, where I won special prizes for having the MOST coupons on hand.
But those days are gone. I’ve become a professional coupon clipper so to speak and so my relationship has ended with my little billfold keeper.
I tried… I really did. I tried to make it work. I stuffed and crammed it to it’s limits, but in the end I had to put it out of it’s misery. When it no longer could stretch it’s little rubberband strap around it’s core… we both knew the time had come.
I will remember the good times. I will remember it’s faithfulness and longsuffering with me.
But now it’s time to say goodbye to an old friend and hello to a new.
I’m not sure how this new friend will work out.
Yes, he does give me more room and I can add my own topics, but the comfort and ease is gone. Lugging this thing around isn’t as nice, but it has opened doors to GREAT savings.
So for now we will stick together, but I’m on the lookout for a replacement, something more good looking.
I know that’s so shallow, but I have to be honest. I do go for looks in this type of situation.
But for now I will surrender to the black box. I will lug it around and save lots of $$, but someday soon.. there may be a new ‘keeper’ in town.
