Easy On The Mayo
For many people, coupon-clipping has been a popular way to save money.  Coupons clipped from grocery store and other retailers ads, and for many years, my wife has clipped coupons as well.  The first thing she does when the Sanday newspaper arrives in to go through the inserts and look for bargains, etc.   We have a trade-off...she does the grocery shopping and I clean the house.  But, if coupon-use is not done properly, it can cause problems.

One day, I went into the kitchen to prepare a sandwich, and as I was rummaging through the refrigerator getting  the ingredients for my sandwich, I noticed a jar of mayonnaise...and then another...and then another large jar of mayonnaise! 

What's going on here, I thought to myself!  Why do we have four large jars of mayonnaise in the refrigerator?  I then had to go to the pantry to get the rest of the things I needed for my lunch...and there, I saw FIVE more large jars of mayonnaise!  All of this mayonnaise for a family of four...with two small children?  This was enough mayonnaise to feed the entire country of Bulgaria for over a year!

The only thing I could think of, as to how something like this could have happened was the use...or mis-use of coupons!  Because my wife checks for coupons every week, she probably had a coupon for mayonnaise...and then another...and another...used them all...until the mayonnaise piled up!
Just because a person has a coupon for an item, doesn't mean the person has to use it.

In all, there were NINE large jars of mayonnaise in the refrigerator and in the pantry, and my wife had some explaining to do.  I had no idea how I was going to handle this problem, but one thing was certain.  If this type of thing continued, my wife was going to need a little therapy...and what better place to get that counseling than to send her up to Minnesota...you guessed it...to the Mayo Clinic!
