Extreme Couponing

Have you been watching the TLC Extreme Couponing shows?  They have begun a new series of them on Wednesday evenings at 9:00 and 9:30 p.m.  It has certainly gotten people talking about coupons!  However I think the key word there is "extreme." Those people are nuts! Who gives up a shower for 100 rolls of toilet paper!?! What single woman needs 50 antacid?  Who spends 49-60 hours a week on their coupons? Do you? 

Kris and I were talking about it the other day. I don't spend 40 hours a week on coupons, nor have the goal to clear shelves. I spend 1-2 hours a week on blogs and cutting coupons (usually during Greys Anatomy) to help make ends meet for my family. I don't think I have ever saved 98% at Kroger. I am happy when I save 40-50%. I'm ecstatic when I get free detergent or toothpaste for our stockpile but I get 3 or maybe 6 of each, not 99! I am worried that the show is giving couponers a bad image and worring the stores that now seem to be tightening up their coupon policies and making it harder for the rest of us.

Leave a comment and tell us what you think of the show.
