Ok, so I know I'm late, but I had to come and chat about this new hot topic...
As for the show, I love it...totally entertaining and over the top. Everything I look for in 'reality' tv.
Is it really possible? Absolutely, if you can figure out how to get 100 coupons for $.75 off of gatorade...have a store in your area that not only doubles your coupon, but is offering gatorade for $1.50. Therefore, you can start your own stockpile with 100 free bottles of gatorade.
A little much? Completely. LOL...
I live in the north east. Bargains are few and far between here. But let's call it 'Super Couponing', as opposed to extreme. How's that?
As of late, Pathmark (though another few and far between luxury in my area) has been offering double and TRIPLE coupons over the weekends up to and including $1 AND $2!!! That is pretty amazing considering the number of things you can get for $3...so I ended up with quite the amount of 'free' items.
Couponing is all about organization, diligence, and preparation. You can do it. Even if you are not getting 25 cases of soup, you can probably feed your family for the month on just $50.
Make sure you check out your local Sunday paper and online coupon spots (coupon mom, common sense with money etc.), match up your local grocery store with the coupons, and you're on your way. You may not find everything that you want every time, but you should be able to get some pretty good deals.
I've been thinking about starting a coupon club.
We would get online, and trade coupons across the country, let me know what you think and if you would be interested..
