The road less traveled is the one that I rarely have to go down, but think that tonight I might just need to go down it.
Let me reinterate exactly what the mission of Coupon Mama is- the mission is simply to be a BLOG and go to spot on Facebook for people to learn how to save money and fellowship about Christ at the same time. I want you to learn to shop and save not so you can "HOARD", but so you can share with others less fortunate, family, friends or just give to a stranger!
Today I was shocked to hear that someone had...well wait let me back up not SHOCKED by any stretch of the word, but I was puzzled that someone would make a complaint on "COUPON MAMA" and how much product she is able to pick up with her coupons. Well well well if that isn't a long shot let me tell you why- CM has missed out on many many many deals over the past six months because when I get to the store I hear "they already got it all" because I have posted it and said GO GO GO!!.I usually just laugh get my rain check and leave "no problem-" so when I hear that I picked up too much PUREX and someone else was unable to get it and they were mad hmmm. I think we can all agree that I am a good BLOGGER, but not the only blogger posting the deals..If I happen to make it to the store and there is some product in..it might just be FAVOR and not the inside link!!! God's favor isn't always fair, but it is always JUST~
My family doesn't even use PUREX I picked up two cases after it had been on sale for 10 days and the coupon had been out for 8 days. I went to pick it up after missing the week before and then going in on Monday to see there wasn't any on the shelf. Many people had complained that they weren't able to work the deal and they were told they couldn't use the coupon. I went into the store and talked with management for over 20 minutes to get the computer system right and make sure there was plenty in the store (9am) and that the system would allow the coupon to work (Thanks Emmanuel & Josh). I then went home ran errands and returned to the store at 3pm (over 6 hours later) to pick up the two cases. In the mean time I posted an update to let everyone know the PUREX was in the store and to go and pick it up, I also advised you that another truck would be coming....talk about heads up!!
The Purex will be donated to a local worthy cause that needs the laundry detergent a lot more than my household. The purpose of CM is to help you to fill your pantry while at the same time filling someone elses with at CHEERFUL heart. My heart isn't very cheerful tonight and it bothers me that someone would take it to the next level like this....
I want everyone to remember this when the stores start to LIMIT us on what we can and can not purchase with coupons. The day will soon come...watch and see...I am good now...it felt good to get that off my chest- Thanks for reading and feel free to comment good, bad or indifferent I will post them all!
