What’s more, a paycheck is generally considered superior to, say, a stockpile of 50 jars of tomato sauce.[/i] Read more: http://business.time.com/2012/11/05/former-extreme-couponer-admits-its-a-waste-of-time/#ixzz2BTLyz0am So I should stop using coupons and get a second job? I am a couponer and I have no desire to get a part-time job so I can afford groceries. Personally I enjoy planning my shopping trip- my children help organize things but according to the Time article, I should be busting my ass at another job, away from my family and home because I would save more money???!!! [/quote] comprehension fail... your quote clearly states that "utilizing couponing AS something of a part-time job..." you obviously aren't doing that. there are some people that spend 20+ hours a week couponing in an effort to save money and the article is saying that if you just worked those 20+ hours at a part-time job, you'd be making more money than you'd be saving. [/quote] I clip coupons in the evenings while I talk with my family or we watch shows and listen to the radio. It's not EVEN difficult. [/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.
