You should date a girl who coupons.
You should date a girl who’d rather save a buck than spend it. Who cherishes the little things.
Who doesn’t care what kind of car you drive, or how much money you make. Who doesn’t need “things” in her life — she just needs you.
Date a girl who coupons because she’s smart. She’s found ways to get discounts on everything from crackers to cruises, all the while smirking at everyone paying full price.
Date a girl who coupons because she’s reliable. Every trip to the store, every time she shops online, she finds the best deal. Without fail. And any time you need her, she’ll be there.
Date a girl who coupons because she’s a hard worker. Most people don’t have the dedication bargain-hunting requires. But a girl who coupons isn’t afraid of hard work; she’ll always try her best.
Date a girl who coupons because she’s creative. She’ll dream up fun adventures that don’t cost a thing.
She’ll innovate ways to spend less so you can live the life you choose. She’ll impress you each and every day.
Date a girl who coupons because she’ll never make you feel bad for being financially responsible.
She won’t make fun of you for using a Groupon on a date (well, maybe just a little), and she’ll think it’s sexy when you talk about your retirement fund.
Date a girl who coupons because she’s her own person. She’s confident in who she is and what she wants.
She isn’t ashamed she loves saving money or follows all the couponing blogs. She isn’t afraid to be herself — and hold up the grocery line for what seems like forever.
Date a girl who coupons because she knows what really matters. She knows money is nice, but that many other things are more important. She doesn’t need you to buy her fancy jewelry — as long as you love her.
In fact, if you find a girl who coupons, you should probably marry her.
Because you know she’ll love you even when it’s a lot of work. She’ll show up even when she doesn’t want to.
She’ll save your family money so — even if you’re not rich — you’ll be able to afford things that make your life rich.
… But first, she’ll check if there’s a discount code.
