Oreo sent me a coupon for a free package of Oreos when I became a fan on their Facebook page. I redeemed my coupon today, and the kids enjoyed their very first Oreo. Pretty sure they’ve never had them before. Is that sad? But Eden took the cake – or the cookie, if you’d rather.
“Thanks for buying these cookies, Momma.”
“I didn’t buy them, honey. I had a coupon that made them free.” (Never too soon to implement the money-saving values needed to survive in this world. And mentioning this also lets me remind them, when they want me to buy them again, that I didn’t buy them and they are most definitely not in our budget.)
“Oh. Well, thanks for freeing them!”
Oreos: Independence achieved.
(And a side note, Liberty asked me if I could watch for a coupon for her that would make new doll clothes for Felicity free. She doesn’t want a dollar off coupon though. Only free. Girl after my own heart.)
