GRRRRRRRRRR! (It's a rant)

So, As you all know, money here has been tight since Charlie's hospital stay. Well, as such I definitely have been getting Good at the coupon thing. And I'm sure most of you caught my update about getting rid of our old sitter and our wonderful new manny.

It just gets "better". Since I've been asking so many of my friends IRL, and family members for their papers I had 16 of the $5 off any Similac product coupons. I was holding onto them waiting for a sale. Well, after thinking about it for a few I decided that I didn't want to wait for the powder to go on sale since the bottled ready to serve kind came to less than $0.74/each with the coupon anyway. I went to pull out my coupon binder and THEY ARE ALL GONE. All of them!

And this is where it gets good... Dh and I decided we would look on Ebay to see how much those puppies were going for, figuring even if we had to spend $20-ish it's less than we'd spend otherwise....

...and our former babysitter's ebay profile had the EXACT coupon that was missing from my binder listed. The listing is pulled now, but oooh I was mad.

I hate to think that she would do that to me, because we were supposed to be friends, but it seems WAY too coincidental that three days before she quit she mentioned how much money can be made off of coupons like that online and then mine are missing entirely. Other than Dh she was the ONLY person who knew where I kept my binder. Sad I'm so hurt/pissed/shocked I don't even know what to say. Like I said I don't want to think it was her, but all the evidence points that direction Sad

Thanks for listening to me ranting Sad

It's more hurtful than anything KWIM? I had to ask so many friends/family members for those! That was darn near $100 worth of formula that we're not gonna get now Sad And with Charlotte still being on every 2 hour feedings I really could have used it. (They yelled at me to bump it back to 7oz every 2 hrs at her last appt)

OMG, I completely understand what you're feeling... that actually upsets me beyond words... I would be so upset I wouldn't even know what to do other than cry Cray 2 I can't believe someone would be so cruel as to do someone else, especially when they are supposed to be your friend. I mean, it's not only hurting you, it's taking away FOOD for your BABY!! Sad

I mean, I have the money to buy the formula, it's just the principle of the thing. It means that dang near $100 is not going to get to be spent on other things.
