I always knew it wasn't worth it! Got so sick of people telling me to spend my Sundays clipping newspapers apart. [/quote] If you can find coupons for items you would be buying anyway, why not clip them and use them? [/quote] That's what normal people do...the freaks OP is referring to are the ones that write the manufacturers and ask for free shit and combine 20 different coupons to get as much free stuff as possible. [/quote] See this is why it's not worth it to some of them...because they can't abuse the system anymore. Use coupons the right way you can get things you need and want on the cheap, not always free, but cheap. For instance...ShopRite will only allow 4 alike coupons. And they limit sales too. Even the one guy who shopped at ShopRite on one the episodes would have been flagged had he not had special permission with the heads at ShopRite. They also had to get filming rights too. The fact that they were donating helped them too. The real truth is you have to know the rules and keep to them. The extremers have now been called out and they will have to follow the rules now too. Don't like coupons that's okay. It's not for everybody. My MIL (Bless her! I luvs her!) usually always pays full price. I'm the one cringing when her bill comes! I'm like...hey I could have given you coupons for half of this! She just smiles and shrugs. LOL! [/quote]
ttown take note.
For obvious reasons, the idea that you can snag hundreds of dollars worth of groceries for next to nothing has become exceptionally popular with today’s debt-ridden, budget-strapped masses. But does the “extreme couponing” popularized on TV actually pay off?
Of course not. The idea seemed unlikely in the beginning and seems even more so now that more shoppers have tried to mimic the astounding money-saving acrobatics displayed on the TLC show Extreme Couponing.
