Senior Citizens Discounts - I'm in!

I love coupons, don't you? Just think. You can get 50 cents off a product if you buy ten of them! How cool is that?

Whatttt? Oh sure, like you couldn't use ten cans of potted meat? I suppose next you'll tell me you've never heard of potted meatloaf. Potted spaghetti? Mac and potted cheese? Potted roast? A milk potted bath?

No matter; 'cause recently I discovered there's an even better discount going on called, "Senior Citizen discounts." Now I know you find it hard to believe I fall into this category, but alas, da Queen here is a SC. Young at heart, yet senior in body and mind. Let's hope they don't catch up to each other.

AnyHOO...did you know you can get Senior Coffee at McDonalds, Hardee's and all the other fast food places? Not only that, but you can drive around and go back thru the window and get another one! Same discount. I ain't lying, either. Another three trips and you have a full cup, too. Only in America.

Movies, restaurants, hotels, and even some concerts offer senior discounts. Car insurance? Discount. Clothing? Discount. Some places even DOUBLE your coupons on Saturday. I swear, senior discounts are like bird poop, they are everywhere! There's even discounts for Gyms, if you're crazy enough to join one.

So tell me; why aren't doctors and hospitals in on the game? Hello? Would it hurt them to offer a dollar or two off broken bones or surgery? I can just see it now..."Ah, Ms Queenie, that will be $14,278 dollars to remove your appendix, BUT! Today, if you let us take out that nasty old gall bladder, you get a two-fer. Two for the price of one! Whatcha say? You in?"

A two-fer? You betcha! This old gal wasn't born yesterday and I know a deal when I hear one. I may have to cut back on the potted meat sales, but a two-fer? I'm in.

Come one peeps...get with it. Seniors rule. At least for the next twenty years or so.

Discounts - that's what I'm talkin' bout.

JJ - Plotting, potting, and discounting her way through life.

I used to carry special coupon holders everywhere I went. I used to scour the papers and flyers, then carefully cut out the ones I KNEW I needed that week, then carry them everywhere - and forgot to use. I think I still have coupons in that special holder from the 80's and 90' you think they're still any good?

Coupons....where would we be without 'em? I remember the days when I used to see people at checkout dragging out piles of them thinking "huh???" - now I'm thinking "how did I miss that one when I went thru the paper?!?!". Just went to the grocery today and the receipt told me thusfar I'd saved almost $500 this year there between coupons and sales. That "ain't chicken feed".....amen and pass the newspaper!!

Great blog My Queen.....
