"That they (the older women) admonish the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed." Titus 2:4-5

For today, I'll list some common coupon lingo and abbreviations. I may have left something out, just leave a comment if you notice anything or have any questions. Also, you may not understand what some of the terms are. We'll go over all that when we get to talking about the stores!

Common Coupon Lingo (some variations apply)

Blinkie- Coupons found in the blinking machines near the products in the store

BOGO- Buy One Get One Free

BOG50%- Buy One Get One 50% Off (and so on)

Catalina- A coupon that prints out of a machine located by the register (a catalina machine). Sometimes are also OYNSO coupons. You got them when certain specifications are met. Used like cash on your next shopping trip to the same store. Watch the expiration dates! They are sometimes very soon and some stores won't accept expired ones (some will)
