I gave up using coupons to buy groceries several months ago. The coupons have become so useless to me that it's hardly worth looking at them anymore. Very few coupons are on items I find practical in my quest to go back to basic frugal living. In the past coupons were much more useful. Anyway, every once in awhile, I look at the coupons to see if there have been any changes. Some coupon ads have me laughing out loud. Like this one. Isn't he cute with his false teeth? Who can resist a giggle at that face?
Other ads have me wondering.... What are they thinking? The person who owns the towel in this picture seriously needs to either get their washer repaired or else have everyone in the house go back to hand washing 101. If washing their hands is leaving this much dirt on a towel, their technique is all wrong.
Hmm.... maybe they need to change the soap they are using because it apparently isn't working? Well, something is wrong because washing hands should not leave that much dirt on a towel. If you really want a clean towel for every hand washing.... for goodness sake, get a batch of cheap wash cloths and stack them up next to the sink. Wash those when you need a fresh supply. At least you won't be throwing money in the trash with every hand wash.
Speaking of soap..... how about this ad? It tells you that you will never have to touch a germy soap dispenser again. Huh? Why would you walk up to just touch a dispenser? Isn't the point of using soap supposed to be to wash away the germs? You touch the dispenser before you wash, not after. If there are germs on the dispenser you will wash them away with the soap. No need to touch the dispenser until you are ready to wash your hands the next time.
Hmm.... I wonder how this gadget would work if I filled it with homemade liquid soap? I might find one of these at the thrift store in a few weeks.
Ok, moving on. How about this ad? Kind of scary isn't it? No, not scary. They look sad. I went to my sink to see what my little disposer monsters looked like. I wanted to know.... do mine look sad too? Oops! I forgot, I don't have a disposer. Just a plain ol' sink drain. But are these advertisers serious? They want people to buy a maintenance system to clean the disposer every month. To deliberately put money into a disposer so it can be sent down the drain?
