This week's crazy coupon shopping results!

Coupon shopping can be a real, well, pain the ass. (pardon the language)

Last night I went to Shoprite with a stack of about 80 coupons, waited patiently in line, 80 items, 80 coupons, and watched the cashier sort the coupons, scan half the coupons, and put the other half in his drawer without scanning them. I told him quietly of his mistake, he denied it, and rather than argue the point, I let him finish and then went to the shiftleader on that I knew used coupons. It took twenty minutes to correct his error, but I got back over $15.

Today went better. Much, much better.

Last night and this morning, I hit CVS to do the following transactions:

12 boxes of Nabisco crackers @ $2.50 each.
