Sweet!! All the more reason to join and I found out it's a very reasonable price to join. $100 for a year. The only truly useful coupons I find are ones for glade/air wick plug in oil, toilet paper and paper towels. Most times I can't find coupons for other stuff I get. Sometimes I'll get lucky and they'll be offering a coupon for hygeine products when I need them but most of the time the coupons are for junk food and prepackaged meals which I admit I will get now and then but I think I end up using at most 5. Which generally only saves me about$10 at most.  And don't get me wrong, that $10 is nice and enough that I can treat us to a bottle of cheap hooch, but I am amazed by the people who can whittle a$200 grocery tab to $10. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars. You have a right to be here. Be cheerful, strive to be happy. -Desiderata #### bloo • Member • Posts: 1491 ##### Re: Cheapskate stories « Reply #476 on: April 09, 2013, 08:44:17 AM » They have Thomas bagels and bagel thins at Sam's club, where 2 packages are under$4.

Hijack: Wait...what? I've paid$35 a year since 1997 or so. If I let my membership lapse, will it go up to around that?
