In response, several bloggers wrote their own posts. Here they are, in case you missed any of them:
Collin at Hip2Save cordially invited the author to a private coupon session
Crystal at Money Saving Mom very politely refuted all of the author’s 8 reasons
Mindi at Moms Need to Know went on a rant about the author’s ridiculous points
And Shannon at For the Mommas responded in Letterman style
While their posts are valiant, persuasive, and humorous, the fact of the matter remains: there will always be anti-couponers among us. I’m sure you’ve met them. Some of you may even live with them. (You know exactly who I’m talking about, don’t you?)
There are many excuses for not couponing, aren’t there? I’m happy to help refute some of the myths & misconceptions folks have out there about couponing, but I know not even I will change everyone’s mind.
So here’s my question: should I care?
Couponing: take it or leave it. I’ve saved about half on my grocery bill since couponing so I’ll personally “take it” thank you very much! You just go on and enjoy wasting spending money on your groceries.
Have you ever converted an anti-couponer? How do you handle others’ negative comments about your couponing habit?
