The Scarlet ‘C’

I headed out to Publix early this morning to take advantage of a sale that, when paired with a coupon, made for free deodorant. I went to the Publix in Acworth because it was on my way to our mom’s group meetup, so I figured I could run in quickly, grab what I needed and be on my way.

Boy, was I wrong. When I got to the register and handed my coupons to the cashier, she glanced at them and then said, “You copied these coupons.”

Um, no. I told her I had printed them off my computer, and she replied, “Really? Because they look copied to me.”

And so, I had to wait there with a fussy baby while she got a manager so she could show her my “photocopied” coupons.

I’m the girl who wouldn’t even cheat on a test at school but I’m going to cheat the system and use photocopied coupons. Right.

Eventually, I left with my purchases and an apology that it had taken so long. How about an apology for accusing me of cheating?

Does this mean I have to wear a scarlet “C” now?

Toy Question

Is a gloworm a good gift for a 1-year-old? The description says up to 18 months for age, but since I’m new at this parenting thing, I’m wanting to make sure that’s something a 1-year-old would play with. Thoughts?

I’m trying to get more into couponing, especially now that I have diapers and formula to buy. I’ve found it difficult to find coupons for the food I buy for meals since I’m a pretty picky eater, but I definitely have been finding and receiving coupons for baby and other grocery items. However, I don’t have anything to organize them in. My sister uses a 4×6 photo album with tabs for each category, and her system works great, but I think it’s rather bulky. I’m looking for a small binder that can fit in my diaper bag or purse with pocket pages to slide the coupons in for easy reference and customizable tabs. I wonder if I’m asking for too much! Any ideas? For those of you who coupon, what do you use as an organizer?

Back to the Drawing Board

Remember the dress I ordered for the Valentine’s gala? It arrived yesterday, and it is gorgeous. I tried it on, and it fit perfectly, except in one area. My *boobs* are too big for it. Seriously?? I think this is the *first* time I’ve been bummed out about having that kind of problem. So, now the dress is going back and I’m hoping to find something around town. Otherwise, I will just have to freeze in one of my shorter dresses.
