If you can dream it

couponsThere’s that expression “if you can dream it, you can do it.” Thing is, I regularly “dream” I’m giving birth, and yet I haven’t been able to “do” it. In each scenario, the process is painless, quick and simple (and that is why they’re called “dreams”).

Because I’m overdue, and likely on my way to being induced, last night I imagined we were going to the hospital — and I had a coupon code for an induction.

A coupon code?!

While hospitals don’t accept coupons, this probably isn’t too far from reality. I prefer restaurants in the Entertainment Book (RIP) or those running promotions or deals. I can’t remember the last time I purchased an article of clothing that wasn’t on sale (and I often have a coupon or coupon code on top of that) and do not purchase anything online or from a catalogue, unless the company is offering free shipping.

In fact, I’ve been known to order more than I need — and return the extra stuff — to save on shipping. I also favor sites like Nordstrom and Zappos that are all about free shipping all the time.

I’ve even converted R — a man who hadn’t used a coupon before meeting me. He’ll now Google for coupon codes before buying online and will forward me emails highlighting promotions, deals and discounts.

Hopefully, we pass the frugality along to this kid.

    Coupon girl here as well! I adore the LOFT and use their coupons 2-4 times a year when they do the promotions. If you time it just right, you can use these coupons on top of a 40% everything sale. Bliss!

    I wish you all the best Kristi! Thanks for not keeping us wondering. I’ve never cared so much about a baby I have never met/ will never meet…..

    You likely already know that Buy Buy Baby accepts Bed Bath and Beyond unexpired coupons. On top of that – we are big fans of CuddleBugs in Saratoga for selling and buying the kids things (that are easily de-germed) that the kids grow bored with so quickly…good luck with all!
