Extreme Couponing has become a phrase we have all heard of. When TLC launched a new show in late December 2010, Extreme Couponing took off.
Last night a new season began and I am sure many of you were screaming or quite up with with what you were seeing on your television. Two of TLC’s shoppers bought LARGE quantities of Quilted Northern Toilet tissue and Hefty Bags with fraudulent coupons according to Coupon Information Corporation’s (CIC) list as counterfeit coupons. More details and images of this trip can be found on Jill Cataldo’s website and post.
There were a lot of mixed reviews about this series. Many have felt the show misrepresents couponers showing rather an episode of hoarders whiles others were lining up to learn out to do this amazing job of bringing groceries home for FREE! The truth is you CAN shop for FREE, however, I do not envision many of our shelves stocked as high as they show on television. You also will not walk away from the grocery store with a $.56 receipt for $700 worth of groceries – that is not REALITY.When shopping, expect to save 50 to 70% on a good trip.
In addition, if you come home with a large bulk/stash, please donate or Pay it Forward as well like to do on Frugal Coupon Living.
