It seems like I've been asking to sign a lot of petitions lately and I've got another one today.  If you're not familiar with SOPA & PIPA, you can read about them here.

I'm going silent today in solidarity of the protest.  Please consider signing the petition below.


In the meantime, you can always check out my archived posts and I'll see you all tomorrow!

Have a happy day!

Mind If I Rant??

I have been purchasing coupons for a year now.  

Because I live in a small town, the inserts in our Sunday paper aren't really that great.  Sooo, I had no other choice but to find a great supplier of inserts at the lowest price possible.  Here's where it gets tricky.

There are companies all over - well, they're really other bloggers who get great prices on newspaper subscriptions - and they sell the whole inserts and/or clipped coupons to their readers.  It's a great service and one that I'm glad I'm able to take part in.  However, there are those bloggers/companies who mean to sell coupons for a living.  

Here's the thing:  We are NOT allowed to sell the actual coupon.  What we can do is sell the time (as a service) it takes us to gather, sort, clip and ship said coupon.  What bites my butt is that in almost ALL cases, single coupons vary in price.  Here's what I saw on a coupon clipping service this morning:

Purina $0.50/1 Dog Food Coupon (20) $1.00
Purina $5/1 Dog Food Coupon (20) $9.99

$9.99?!  For 20 Coupons??  Really?!  

Now, I ask you...did it take MORE time to gather, sort, clip and ship the $5 off 1 coupon than it did for the $0.50 coupon?  NO.  

I have no problem with people making money.  In fact, I encourage it.  Find something you love and find a way to do it forever!  But, in this instance, it's bordering on greed.  

So, am I wrong to feel this way?  I get that it's a higher value coupon but are these clipping services helping us by charging that much for the 'good' coupons?  

*Note:  After researching this, I have found a great company that offers ALL coupons for THE SAME price - no matter the value!  Check out WizClipz here.  And please know that I am NOT compensated for the name mention.  :)
