Lick It And Stick It

The women were standing in a kitchen going through a cupboard and a drawer when Trish said, “Oh my!  That takes me back a few years.”

The younger woman turned and said, “What is it mom?”

“These are Regal trading stamps.  We used to get them every time we went to the grocery store.”

“What for?”

“You took them home and put them into booklets saving them up to get things out of a catalog.  It was a really nice perk for shopping at the store.”

“Why did they stop doing it?”

“It was probably costing the store too much.”

“It sounds kind of fun.”

“It was.  It just took forever to save for the really good stuff.”
