Hello again Gasmii! I hope you guys are ready for your Honey Boo Boo fix. This episode didn’t have a great deal of stuff going on, it was more about preparing for Alana’s next pageant and showing how the family saves money to participate in said pageants. Plus, I am contemplating whether or not Glitzy is a perfect fit for this family or needs someone to sneak in and rescue him in the middle of the night.
Also, I was sure that there were two episodes, but when I went to pull them up online there was only one. Either I was much drunker than I thought when I watched the show, or they were doing a sneak peak. In any case, once the second episode becomes available, I will post a new recap for you guys.
This week’s focus is on June’s extreme use of coupons, Chickadee’s baby shower, and Alana’s rehearsal for another upcoming pageant.
Up first coupons! June explains that pageants are expensive and she has a large family to feed. She and Alana are going through their coupons and deciding what they need and don’t need so that she can stockpile for really cheap. And from the looks of her stockpiles of paper towels, toilet paper, laundry detergent, and cereal, this family is going to be set for decades.
I love the fact that she is doing the math with Alana as she talks about the savings. Maybe Alana’s outburst last week about “just throwing money in the trash” when they spilled the cheeseballs is due to MamaJune’s influence as much as Sugar Bear’s work ethic.
June says that she always gets the funny looks when she buys hundreds of rolls of toilet paper. But, since she has the coupons, the toilet paper is free and she isn’t bothered by it. And, I have to kind of agree with her. It makes perfect sense. A year or so ago (I was drunk for most of that time because I was trying to recap Basketball Wives and had too many conversations with Flipit from a McDonald’s parking lot. So, I can’t give a whole lot of specifics.), Atlanta had a “Snowpocalypse” and the first thing the stores ran out of was toilet paper, then bottled water, followed by milk and bread.
It’s called priorities, people.
The family talks about how cheap June is and how if it’s more than five dollars she won’t buy it. The girls rib her about how if there was a disaster and everyone in America came to stay with them, they would still have toilet paper left over. I, personally, don’t see how that’s a bad thing. But, it’s cute because Sugar Bear tries to defend his wife’s cheapskate ways by saying it’s about conservation. Of course, he gets drowned out by all of the girls talking, but I did think it was sweet.
Poor Sugar Bear. Surrounded by bossy women.
