Reading Experience:

Evidence:
'When I first read about it I thought to myself; "I don't think that's going to affect me at all; 66 coupons! Why, I shall need half of it!" But then I began to buy things for my boy - a pair of trousers, a couple of pairs of socks, and two summer shirts - then I began to think to myself: "Well, what am I going to do for his winter things?"' coupons doesn't go far, when you start to spend it.' I think a lot of people didn't realise that at the start."
