Why are so many people coupon snobs? I cannot count how many times I've been at Micheals, or Hobby Lobby, or even a book store, pulled out a coupon only to see a look of horror with a pinch of disgust on the face of people my own age.
What's so wrong about getting 40% off on a $45 set of inks? I just saved money, and now I can go buy that t-shirt I've been eying at Hot Topic!
It's like, just because you use a coupon it means that you're broke. Whenever I ask people why they don't like coupons, they usually respond with a "It's not cool!" or "It's embarrassing!"
There's nothing embarrassing about saving money, because if you save money, you can buy more stuff. Using a coupon is no different than participating in a current sale, in fact the only thing different is the paper exchange; you still get discounted, you just don't have to hand over a piece of paper.
It's sad that kids my own age don't practice money saving techniques. And it's also worrying, because one day they won't have their parent's money to fall back on, and they're going to have to learn to save money the hard way.
