I dread going to the mail slot more than is normal and healthy. Not because of the onslaught of bills and catalogues – especially this time of year. But because I think that the sight of ONE MORE 5×7″ blue-and-white, Bed Bed & Beyond coupon may just push me over the edge! These over-sized postcards don’t just add-up. They MULTIPLY!
They are everywhere, even included in everything ever printed and delivered. I get – or find – at least one a week! I can’t take many more! Now, have I used a coupon or two in my retail-buying past, and gotten several-bucks-off the MSRP price of packs of coffee pods or a fitted sheet now and again? Sure I have. But for the love of all that’s discounted, it’s NOT a signal that I need more of them than my sanity can handle.
Please BED, BATH …. This is WAAAAAAAY Beyond!!
