Extreme Couponing:
Lessons From An Expert That’s Not So Extreme

Saving Dollarsand Sense

A new season of Extreme Couponing has started again, and I thought it would be the perfect time to share my thoughts on Extreme Couponing as well as some tips & tricks for becoming and Expert Couponer instead!

I shared my thoughts a while back on the new round of greed & hoarding that is sure to be seen in this article “Real Extreme Couponing Is Not So Extreme“.

I know that many watch this show who are in situations like I once was, desperate to find a way to make their ever shrinking budgets stretch. Unfortunatey what you see on the show is not real.  A lot of it is staged in a way to get the most sensational savings ever!

The reality is that you can save thousands of dollars a year on your household budget by learning the ins and outs of couponing in a way that is real and legitimate.

I hope that I can offer some real advice and tips to help you save!

  6. No. I watched the first episode and that was plenty. I don’t understand the greedy, hoarding, criminal nature of the show. I mean yes I use coupons, hunt for the best bargins, and love to get something for free or next to nothing, but these wasteful fools make me ill. I hate this show and what it stands for.

  7. No, and neither should anyone else! That show is going to ruin couponing!

  10. I am so happy to find other that believe like me. I DO NOT like this show at all! I was hoping that they would change it this year, but they didn’t it’s showing the Crazy, NUT JOBS! I to have somewhat of a stock-pile nothing on the lines of this, they would laugh at me. I could do this, but I feel it’s stealing, and I Hate when people clear the shelf, it is just so rude! One commercial keeps airing this lady says yes I do clear the selves and you should of just beat me to it. That is not the point, it’s over kill! Most of this stuff will go bad. I am able to shop normal with coupons and give to myself, my two daughters and even some of my other family members some-times. And I don’t have to clear the shelves.
    I hope they don’t put a stop to coupons because of this show.
    Have a great day ladies!
