You Know You Are A Cheapskate When....

your daughter grabs the grocery ads from the mailbox, her eyes light up to the size of saucers and she screams, "mom! Fish is for sale!"

I glance down at the ad, "Um, Scarlet, that is chicken."

"Chicken?"

"Yes."

Eyes somehow get even bigger, "Mom, that means chicken is on sale... AND NOW WE CAN GET SOME!"

What followed can only be described as a happy dance.

Before you know it she will be couponing and walking immediately to the back of every clothing store. Gotta love the cheap at heart!

How cute!! That book wasn't the one you said, but someone said they are very similar. It's called 1-2-3 Magic. I am not sticking to everything though since I don't really feel I need to. I do have some common sense in parenting, hahaha!!

I'm the same way! Ryan will want some meal and I will say "we will have it when _____ goes on sale." I'll shop the back of the stores with you any day!
