Sister thinks I'm a nut!

December 19th, 2006 at 05:04 am

I was telling my sister that I found hamburger helper on sale at HEB for only .50 a box. I bought eight boxes, two pasta sauce for .59, bisquick for .50 and a few other things. She says I will be one of those "people" that have things like canned goods stuffed under the bed, I think she thinks I am very eccentric! She goes to the grocery every day to buy things for dinner, rarely does she buy groceries for more than a couple of days at a time. She is always complaining that she spends upwards of $40 a day. I've tried to give her advice on grocery shopping on a weekly basis and how it cuts out those impulse purchases but will she listen? NO!
She thinks it is funny that I use coupons and am always looking for a good deal. Of course she is not single and making it on her own either and her husband has a very well paying job with security and great retirement benefits, all of which I don't have! (of course I dont have near the amount of debt that they carry either!)

    I don't think you're a nut, I think you are smart to buy things on sale and keep them on hand. The trick is using them before they go bad.

    I wouldn't really worry about your sister. Someday, she will figure out why you buy stuff on sale and with coupons, or have her own reason. People may have different reasons for saving money. After I got out of college in 1993 and had trouble finding a good job, I was stuff like pork and beans and peanut butter for almost a year while I saved to go to graduate school. For other people, it may be their kids' college education or their retirement. Now, I want to save money in order to be able to pay off my credit card and medical bills faster. When that is done, I will set aside more money in a short term savings, buy a newer vehicle, and buy a house.
