All who have accomplished great things have had a great aim, have fixed their gaze on a goal which was high, one which sometimes seemed impossible....

Sure, I'll let you pay me to shop at your store!

This is what happens when you don't use coupons until right before they are set to expire. I had over 50 coupons expiring on the 31st and I knew I had to get out and use them regardless of how I looked purchasing a dozen rolls of toilet paper and enough veggies to feed a small army. I sucked it up and went though and this is what I came back with!

I used 47 coupons total in this transaction and it actually required management approval! The people in line behind me were not happy! I couldn't help but laugh at how mad they got. People have no patience these days. I told you I had coupons and yet you still chose to put your things down and stand in line with me. Don't hate!
