Coupon Failure and More Sealife

Bed, Bath and Beyond sends these 20% coupons on awkward pieces of cardstock, inconvenient for carrying around, unless you're planning to go directly to the store. So of course, I forgot to take my coupon yesterday. I could have saved $6 on the little table I got for Q!

I did better at Macy's since their coupons are small enough to stash in my wallet. I don't know how they figure out the margins at that store, because I have "special" discount cards for every day next week and a catalog arriving every time we open the mailbox.

I picked up a set of scarves and mittens (photo) for my cousin's daughters. It's so much fun to shop for little girls. Alas, the pom-pom scarves in the children's department were too small, so I didn't add any to my collection.

In other retail news, the December issue of InStyle features the Octopus Chair and Squid Soap in its holiday gift guide! Such excellent sealife cuteness.

ok, have many times also forgotten my coupon - but you can take it in with your receipt and get your discount later. by the way you can also use as many coupons as you like in one trip (on multiple items) - they never expire. i just found all this out recently!

I'm always getting those BBB coupons, they are enormous, aren't they? Pom pom scarves, too fun! I wish it got colder here, well, just a little.

The macy coupons are hundred years old and they have every new fashion in their stores. You can get each and every new items at reasonable prices. Thanks for providing such an exciting and amazing blog. This gives a lot of information to the common man regarding Macys Coupons.
