It's coupons, receipts, sales flyers, and other couponing paraphenalia. This mess cost me $1.50 the other day! I was in the middle of cleaning everything out, and had to leave for an appointment before I got done. I needed to stop at CVS on my way back to get diapers. I knew I had a $1.50 coupon somewhere in that mess, but I couldn't find it before I had to leave. The dumb thing is that I had already pulled the coupon out earlier, but had stuck it back in the pile. Why did I not just put it in my CVS envelope since I knew I was going to be using it?
I never did find that coupon, by the way. What in the world happened to it?
Moral of the story: keep your coupons organized, and you won't waste money!
