Coupons do take time and effort and in my case, are either forgotten at home or there is another brand that is still cheaper than the coupon price. There are a few coupons that are worth the effort though. Bed Bath & Beyond sends coupons to the house regularly for 20% off and the Sunday paper has the coupons for Michael's and Jo Ann's. Gotta have those!
My friend is going through the same thing right now. She worked at the same job for 20+ years and so that supposedly mean that she too is "over qualified". Forget the fact that she worked for the same co. for 20+ years - wouldn't that mean she's loyal and reliable?
