Pinching Your Pennies Funnies

You know you're a PYPer when...

....nothing in your house has UPC's grab a snack out of the pantry your wife proudly tells you how much it cost. "That granola bar was only 4 cents, honey!" can't remember a single birthday, but you know how much you paid for every item in your pantry. have food stashed under your bed, in your closet, or taking over a room in your house.

....your wife flies out of bed at 4am- jumps into her clothes- throws makeup on & styles her hair- just to run to the store for FREE cereal, but she can't seem to wake up every Sunday @ 9 a.m. to get ready for church on time!

.... your kids come home from the neighbors (another PYP'er) and ask why they have all the same toys and snacks that you do!

....your coupons weigh more than your purse.

....your kids introduce you to their friends using your screen name instead of your real name! ask your daughter what she wants for her birthday and she replies, "I dunno. What ya' got coupons for!" gasp at the shopper in line behind you and exclaim, "You should NEVER pay for gum, EVER!" come home from a shopping trip and lay out your groceries on the table with the reciept and your before/after totals circled, take pictures of it, and post it on your blog

....when nobody has to ask who put 27 full-size tubes of name-brand toothpaste in the church donation bin for the needy.

….it's 6:08 AM and you're on your 2nd transaction at Albertsons.

….you reschedule your wedding because that’s the day the Target markdown is 90%.

….'Penny for your Thoughts' is your only source of information. think the zebra at the zoo looks like a bar code.

.…your husband has ever had to ask you to move the cases of toilet paper so he could take a shower.

….you own more tubes of toothpaste than pairs of underwear.

….the local Disaster Preparedness Class instructor asks permission to hold a field trip in your basement.

.…your idea of a "quiet, romantic evening at home" involves scissors and inserts. (This one made me laugh so hard I wet myself. Sad, but true!)

….your kids take a 6 ft register receipt to "Show and Tell."

….Betty Crocker makes your list of most admired people. get an adrenaline rush from reading next week’s printable shopping lists.

….you did all your Christmas shopping online…. in February.

….you’ve ever woken up from a nightmare screaming “I lost my Binder!“ know what "Guru math" is feel naked without your binder send their wives up to you in the store asking "how did you do that?" no longer write out your own shopping lists, you just print it off right off the site leave the hospital a day early after giving birth because the Quaker sale starts in the morning.

....your daughter's classroom always wins the pizza party for the most boxtops.

....your cashier has to have a manager over-ride the register because you have so many coupons.

Hahaha!!! Sad but true :p Atleast we can laugh at ourselves. I would have never thought I'd be a couponer in a million years, but man, do I wish I would have figured it out sooner.
