They didn't have a lot of fancy holders for these coupons either. I believe we all used a envelope that they all stood in and you had to finger through them to see if you had the coupon for this item or that item. Then people got smart and you had coupon holders that were separated into categories so all you had to do was go to that category and search through those coupons and not the whole envelope. The new coupon holders were always new and improved and you had a wide selection to choose from. Of course one was always better than the other.
Now we have store cards that you can download your coupons to it and just scan your card and it all comes off your bill at the end. I have a few of these store cards that I use and I will be using one this morning. I have a Thornton's card and it is a convenience store were you can get just about anything. You do get 3 cents of a gallon of gas when you scan your card. I will be using my card for a free drink that they sent me and I downloaded onto my card. I will take almost anything free.
I think it is still pretty wild that coupons still exist and you can just cut them out and use them like we did a long time ago. My wife still does it and she is pretty good at it. She does not have the envelope system she just brings what she is going to buy. Technology has come a long way and believe me it is not done yet. Well I hope you have a great day and go out and save some money.
