Aisles Filled With Q-Tips

Tuesday I took my step-father (the one in the red plaid shirt) grocery shopping. 10% Off Tuesday, they call it. That's where seniors get 10% off their entire purchase. The last time I ventured into the grocery store on 10% off Tuesday, I thought I was in another world.

The place was packed. Carts moving at a snail's pace. A sea of white hair; Q-tips, as Eddie calls them. Armed with coupons and the latest store flyer, we zipped around the store like shopping Ninja's and by the time we left, had saved $67.00. Some coupons were doubled, rendering our purchases FREE. Kleenex brand tissues cost me $ .80 a box. Holy crap, I've been getting robbed!

I might have to start clipping coupons and stop dying my five gray hairs to prepare for hitting senior shopping days all over the country. Think of the savings!

2011 vacation, here I come!
