By now you might have heard that the Garrison Command at Fort Bragg had to crack down on “Coupon Hoarders” who have been waiting for the base paper to be delivered (which happens to be free) and then grabbing dozens of copies at time , leaving no papers or coupons for others. Residents of Fort Bragg are complaining that no papers are ever available anymore.
What makes it worse is that according to one spouse I know, it’s not all coupon loving dependents grabbing them up but civilians too.
What these folks fail to realize is the base paper shares information of important happenings on post. So many are quick to complain that the military base doesn’t have a good flow of information or they never hear about the happenings but if you are grabbing up all the papers just to obtain the coupon circulars , what in the world do you expect?
In addition this is the kind of crap that will cause the commissaries and other off post retailers to keep changing their coupon policies until eventually we will no longer be able to do all the cool things we do now such as stacking or doubling etc(No you can’t do neither of these at the commissary…just making a point of what could happen).
I know you are probably sitting there saying “Oh Shutup…you love coupons too”! You would be right , but not enough to take a whole bunch of circulars and lose my damn privileges.
Frankly while I love couponing I love saving money on stuff my little crumb snatchers can eat off daily. I am all for the occasional body wash or deodorant haul but deodorant does expire after a while so I really don’t need a 25 circulars with the same coupon or 60 sticks of deodorant. Now if you want to give me 25 coupons for:
Cereal …Then I will gladly take it because we can actually survive off of those!
Is getting twenty coupon circulars really worth losing your privileges onpost? I bet you wouldn’t want those 25 or 30 circulars if you couldn’t shop in your local commissary anymore!
Sound off am I wrong? …No matter what you have to say I want to hear it!
