Sorry, I still hate "entertainment" books.

Maybe I don't get out much, but they always seem to offer coupons mainly for events/restaurants/etc that I'd never think of going to or eating at normally.

For example, your "free pretzel". I'm not familiar with the name of that particular store, but I don't think I've EVER in my life purchased a snack of that sort--expensive, high calorie, and from the mall or a separate store. We're not big into snacking--it's a diet disaster--and if we do snack it's usually at home, or we eat lunchbox-size bags of chips or peanuts that I buy in bulk at the grocery and keep in the car.

I also never order pizza--if we eat it, I make my own. If we eat out, it's either McDonalds (OK I have small children!) or a sit-down place serving real food.

And none of our local entertainment books offer grocery store savings, :( oh well!

I think you've hit the nail on the head there. One recent British example is Kerry Katona. At the height of her career she was pulling in millions a month. Now she's bankrupt, a coke addict, had her home foreclosed and is even having to fight to retain custody of her children.

A terrible shame, and with just one fundamental cause: Total ineptitude when it came to personal financial management.

And as you may have guessed, right comment wrong post!
