Message Subject Former ‘Extreme Couponer’ Admits: It’s a Waste of Time
Poster Handle Anonymous Coward
Post Content
There’s a strong argument to be made that utilizing couponing as something of a part-time job is pointless because, considering the amount of time that’s required, you’d wind up making (or saving, as it were) far more money with an actual part-time job. What’s more, a paycheck is generally considered superior to, say, a stockpile of 50 jars of tomato sauce.

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???!!!

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.

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.
