Staples & Ice Cream

We hit Staples tonight for more paper.  Just have to pay tax.  Even I can swing that.  Then we were going to get ice cream only it was late, so we passed.

But it was still nice to get out some.

I'm feeling less tired than I looked in my last post.  And tomorrow I go on a couponing field trip with my friend.  She just started couponing.  And soon she'll be saving, big time.

Meanwhile, I'm having a hard time explaining to Tim that just because we have 10 ice cream cake coupons, doesn't mean we get 10 ice cream cakes.

I love that man.  He cracks me up.

  1. Wait, wait. If you have ten you don't buy ten all at once? LOL I can see my sons thinking the same thing.

  3. My husband would also believe I should buy 10! Why else have that many coupons?

  4. I think I can speak for most any guy, when you have 10 coupons for ice cream cakes and you only bring home 1 that is very confusing and disappointing.

    If you have 10 soap coupons you always come home with 10 soaps. 10 coupons for toothpaste, we get 10 toothpastes.

    So I'm not sure why my thinking is flawed in this situation.

  5. I see Tim is still having some trouble with this concept Whisk. I would try to explain it, but I can't it's too heartbreaking :)

  7. Tim: You are so funny.

    Anne: He was very sad not to see 10 ice cream cakes coming through the door.

    Stacy: He really made me laugh with his comment.

  8. Good thing this was about the store staples. Now actual staples and ice cream, that's a combo that doesn't settle in your stomach.

  9. I have to agree with Tim!

  10. And what's wrong with 10 ice cream cakes then??

  11. Now wait a minute, when you have ten toothpaste coupons, you get ten toothpastes. Seems only fair...
    Glad you're less tired. Go attack today with your coupons.

  12. Why have such a large freezer if you'r not going to fill it (for a very short period of time)

  13. If you have 10 you may as well use em.

  14. Adam: That would be a bad combo, indeed.

    Lurker, Ray, Alex, Ian & Pat: It's like the boys versus the girls, over here. Too funny.

  15. I think that we men are genetically predisposed toward our own annihilation. That's why we buy 100 minis when we really only need ten, why we buy rules for games we'll never play, why we jump on every kickstarter project out there (yeah, I just backed another one this morning).

    And that's why we have wives. To save us from ourselves, in spite of ourselves.

    And this is why I agree with Tim (and Lurker, and Ray, and all the other guys here). It's also why Mrs. Bard is going to confiscate my credit card when she finds out I backed on another kickstarter this morning. And the fact she'll take my card is why we'll still be able to buy food next week.

  16. Bard: You are very funny as well. Mrs. B is gonna take your mac card too, if you're not careful.

    It's so funny how all the guys are, yeah, get the ten. And from that point of toothpaste and soaps, I get it. But from the wife point of view, I just cannot do it.

    Thank for stopping by.

  18. Tim should be a lawyer. He makes a very good case.

  19. Ian: I have a notebook cover that reads: Boys are stupider. Send them to Jupiter.

    Susan: He did a good job with that comment. Made me laugh and made a good point. I love him.

  20. Tim's argument makes perfect sense to me. Plus, think of all the money you are saving.

    Do the 10 ice cream cakes come with an angioplasty discount?

  21. Why not buy all ten at once? It's entirely logical!
