what is the old saying? “ask and you shall receive?” or something about a door and a window? or an old woman and a fly? anyhow, sometime on Saturday night I was in a desperate place regarding a series of possibly-based-in-reality shows on TLC, and tweeted the following tweet:
Riese: i have some feelings about extreme couponing
mainly i can’t stop thinking about it
but it’s not like i want to watch all the episodes, i just want the show to ask the questions i desire answers to
on the episodes
11:31 PM me: I just want everything for free
I want to know how to do it
Riese: what are they gonna do with all the paper towels though
11:32 PM like they keep acquiring more things
do they use the things?
me: The paper towels I get
Riese: the mustard though
me: but not like the mustard
Riese: i just kept thinking they could sell me the mustrd
for like 10 cents
cuz i feel like they have too much mustard
11:33 PM me: Yeah, and the guy with all the toothpaste
he will die before he uses it all
Riese: right and then what
me: but I would buy it!
11:34 PM Riese: and also do they have to get like 50 things of mustard in order to get them for free?
also do they only eat processed foods? i’m worried for their children
me: I don’t think so! I think its just like hoarding
Riese: free hoarding
me: very organized hoarding
11:35 PM ok
My IRL friend Bird also agreed to talk to me about hoarding I mean couponing, but since IRL conversations can’t be copy/pasted I will not repeat it here. Suffice to say we’re both really into Extra Care Bucks at CVS. Good work all around, team! Nice hustle! I still don’t have any free paper towels though.
