You know you are a $mart $hopper when:

The coupons inserts are the first section you look for in the Sunday newspaper.

The shoebox with your “collection” of grocery coupons is getting too small.

Your children wear Cheerios T-shirts and carry Hershey’s back packs.

Your neighbor --- the one who used to laugh at you --- asks for “coupon lessons.”

You know the supermarket aisles and shelves so well you could almost shop blindfolded!

You deposit refund checks in college savings accounts for your grandchildren.

Shoppers in the aisles watch in awe as you thumb through your coupon file

The supermarket manager walks over to tell you about unadvertised specials

You turn the eggs and feel the bottom of the milk carton without even thinking about it

You always seem to find the very last 75-cents-off hang tag or the last $5 refund form on an aisle display (Smart Shoppers tend to be lucky!).

You know how to pick the best container of strawberries --- never a moldy one…almost never!

You can’t remember paying more than 99-cents (final cost) for a jar of spaghetti sauce or $1.50 for a box of cereal.

It seems like you have a coupon for almost every grocery item in your shopping cart.

The “Double Coupons!” headline on the supermarket advertisement starts your heart madly thumping like a frenzied calypso player beating on a bongo drum.

No matter how quickly the cashier can scan, you can spot a price error on the register display.

The cashier rings up the last item and exclaims, “Wow! We owe YOU money!”

When you hear a supermarket 50 miles away has Triple Coupons, you make travel plans

When your adult children call to tell you about a “bargain” they found --- the same children you embarrassed selecting from the bargain rack.

When your husband helps you file your coupons.

Most of the boxes and bottles in your pantry are missing their UPC codes

You have a closet full of low-cost or no-cost premium merchandise to give as holiday gifts

You have a competition going on at the office, comparing who got the best Double Play over the weekend.

The mailman wonders why you get so much mail from Young America, Minnesota

And finally, you know you are a $mart $hopper when your spouse brags to his (or her) friends about how smart you are because of the money you save!

(Sound familiar to anyone)?
