Just a little tipperoo
Since this blog is called "Remember me? I'm in the army too!" I suppose I should post something about army life every now and then, huh? Today, I was on coupon.com trying to find diaper coupons. I started looking through all of their coupons. Most all of them are for $1.00 off or more, but they are all brand name products and I shop at wal-mart and usually buy the great value brand. The commissary carries all name brand at great prices, but we still can shop cheaper at Wal-mart with the great value brand (only by a few cents for each item, but it really does add up in the end). I started thinking about how great it would be to be able to use coupons.com coupons at the commissary but I doubted that the commissary accepted coupons since the prices were already so low and we don't have to pay taxes. I picked up the phone and gave the commissary a little ring-a-ling. And guess what? They totally accept coupons (hmmm, this warm air is making me sound like a Californian :)). I can't wait to get back home and use my coupons at the commissary to see if my grocery bill is lower than my wal-mart bill!!! The only thing that stinks is that the Commissary is not open on Mondays, which is when I usually do my grocery shopping and it is not a one stop shop store like Wal-mart, but whatever. If I save money it will be well worth it. So, for all my fellow military families, take a look at coupons.com (or any coupons for that matter). Maybe I am preaching to the choir. Please let me know if any of you have price compared. I would love to know what you think is cheaper!!!
