I had quite an adventure at Rite Aid this weekend. I clipped hundreds – I’m serious, hundreds! – of coupons from the Sunday newspapers from the past few weeks then cross-referenced my coupons with what was listed on sale in the weekly flyer. Made a list and headed to the store. I was worried that one of three terrible things would happen:

Coupons for eBay are few and far between. But Hubby knows a trick to get one. If there are two things you want to buy from eBay, he says, buy the cheaper one now, then wait a few weeks.
