Mel Says, “Save Me The Money!” 11/10

nov 11 020

My husband decided to tag along this week.  God love him. I think he is as bad and the children.  “Honey, can we get this?”  is still ringing in my ears.  It is hard to explain to a non-couponer that a “free” turkey with a $100 purchase is not a great deal if you buy $40 of random items to get you there.  Good thing he is so darn cute!
