    Love it! I think most of us on the GC would agree with every item on your list.

    Oh goodness, let me count the ways!

    1. I can barely get stuff into my purse because of my bulging accordian coupon holder.
    2. Sunday mornings are reserved exclusively for hounding. Gotta go get my papers!
    3. I know the location of the nearest CVS's, Walgreens and Rite Aids from home, work, my parents' house and my boyfriend's house.
    4. I have more CVS and Walgreens plastic bags than I know what to do with.
    5. My closets are bursting at the seams with freebies.
    6. I check in with the GC thread and HCW almost every day.
    7. For a while, I had a serious blister on my coupon-cuttin' finger. My family laughed at me.
    8. I sustained a deep cut on my finger while cutting out a UPC code on a box of granola bars. My family laughed some more.
    9. I have bought items I have absolutely no use for just because they were free - Rogaine, Just for Men hair color, diabetes monitors, etc.
    10. How could I not be addicted? Its so much fun!!

    Because I can't stay out of the stores! :-)

    I envy your $4.00 Pace coupon. I have been trying to win with no success. So when is the popcorn party at your house?


  4. Frugalsuz - I love that - totally made me laugh.

    Precious - I only got 1 of the coupons and I keep playing their online game trying to win another one! Any time you want a popcorn party - come on over!

    #2--I can totally relate to that one. Especially after I've stockpiled a lot of free something. Right now, Borden cheese is on sale at Jewel for $2/bag...and I laugh. They want me to pay for cheese? With money? Riiiigghhhtt.
