Extreme Coupon Shopping is Serious Business in Abilene [VIDEO]

You will react one of two ways, either "wow, look at all that money she is saving" or "are you kidding me, she should do this when all the check-outs are open! Somebody get me a manager, I'm not waiting behind this psycho shopper!" I know this because, it happened to me when I went to check out at the local Wal-Mart Super Center. I was struck behind an "extreme coupon shopper" who by the way saved about $330.00, and the couple behind me who flew into a rage and was demanding to see a manager. I had never seen extreme couponing in real life before.

Business Mercado was not all Business [Video]

Photo by: Rudy F.
Business Mercado was this past Saturday at the Abilene civic center. What I expected was a very subdued and quite affair. Was I surprised when I walked into the civic center and was greeted with the wonderful sounds of a Mariachi band. Mariachi Alma Mexicana set the mood and made me feel like I was in a real Mercado (Market) in Mexico. The air was filled with sound and the smell of fresh tamales, compliments of our local United Super Markets. This Free to the public event was attended by people of all walks of life and all ages. One thing we all had in common, was that, when the Mariachi Alma Mexicana played we all stopped to listen, sing along, danced or swayed to the beat of the music. Oh and yes there were over one hundred businesses represented and y es they were talking business and how they could better serve us.
