I cancelled the trial subscription. It is SOOO not worth it! First of all, they talked about coupons occasionally that I didn't have and since I've gotten multiple copies of the newspaper each week I should have had them. Second, a couple of the "sales" weren't on sale at my store. Third, their prices were not always the same as my store and invariably the amount at my store was MORE making the savings less than stated. Fourth, the savings from Teri's List average about 50%. That is good and all, but my savings on my own thanks to you guys is running minimum 75%. And I'm finding that I'm liking doing coupons now. I think it might have something to do with me using them for fun (it's a challenge) now rather than because I need to (because we were dirt poor) like I was before.

You'll still get your good deals. We'll be the ones missing out.

Trust me-- there are enough people either not doing the "buying little or nothing" thing or whose urges to save will overcome them. Someone will post the great deals. It won't be me because it's never me. So I'm innocent!

I would never abandon you. I'll still comb the ads and check the coupons. I'd DIE if I didn't do at least that. Then I can live vicariously through you all! LOL

Are you trying to implicate that my urge to save will make me go shopping?!

Maybe. Maybe not. There are several on the board who could fit into that description.

Sigh, I fear you may be right. But I'm going to try and stay strong.

Liz, don't lie. You (and me both) have no faith that they will be unable to get 20 cans of tuna for free.
