Exploring the World of Extreme Couponing

I'm a pretty thrifty woman and I don't particularly mind that my family makes fun of me for it. We do not throw away money on things we don't need. If we need it, and can afford it, we will buy it -- we'll look for a sale but if we don't find one, we still buy. Which pretty much explains why I've never been anything more than a sporadic coupon user. And that, my friends, is about to change. I have entered the world of the extreme couponer. ...more

The Pro and Cons of Couponing

This will be a completely biased post because I never wanted to start couponing in the first place. My wonderful husband was regaled with tales of amazing money-saving by his coworkers.

(INTERVIEW) MrCoupon From TLC's Extreme Couponing

Recently, TLC aired a controversial show titled “Extreme Couponing." It caused quite the stir among couponers and non couponers alike.

No Secret To Making Cash With Coupons & Rebates.

             If you are trying to find a way to succeed online, using rebate sites is really the simplest way to get started. First of all, there is no secret to it. A company is going to pay the site a certain percentage for a sale. The site is going to give a portion back to the buyer, and a smaller portion is going to be given to the person that referred that buyer. Say the sale earned the site 10%, the site gives the buyer 5% and the referrer 2%....more

Coupons: Purposely to annoy the next customer? Or serving a family well?

Recently I heard someone complaining about a woman in line using coupons.  Apparently she was inconveniencing this other person to the point where he was huffing and puffing and tapping his foot.  It really made me think about couponing as a whole. http://healthbymom.wordpress.com/2010/10/19/coupons-purposely-to-annoy-the-next-customer-or-serving-a-family-well/...more
