Extreme Couponing Leads to Extreme Rebating

Before this experiment in extreme couponing, I'd always used some coupons but had never really taken advantage of mail-in-rebate offers. I guess I've sent in less than 10 grocery rebates over the last 30 years. I never seemed to have the UPC or the bottle cap or the label - or if I had those, I don't have the receipt....more

My Debut as a Coupon Shopper

I had done my research (by reading every word of the Beginners Section of The Krazy Coupon Lady), clipped coupons from last Sunday's paper, printed numerous internet coupons and had sale papers in hand.  Although I felt I was ready for the challenge, I was also nervous. Really, nervous? Yes, nervous. Nervous I wouldn't find the right sales. Nervous I would get caught in the emotion and buy way too much stuff that *gasp* wasn't on sale nor that I had a coupon for....more

That's exactly what I've done tonight (a very romantic Friday night with my ...more

Extreme Couponing and the Art of Stockpiling

Just typing the word stockpile makes me twitchy so you can imagine how I'm handling the fact that this extreme couponing experiment has turned me into a stockpiler. I have moments when I'm on the verge of hyperventilating. Or when I want to just throw in the towel and say enough already. When TW put a Stuff to Stockpile list on the whiteboard I almost had a heart attack. ...more

Extreme Couponing: How Do You Get Started?

The best thing about this Extreme Couponing experiment is the people I've met. Check out the comments on my post and on the forum post where I asked couponers questions about how to clip/manage coupons. Everyone has been incredibly helpful, supportive and positive. Because of their willingness to talk about how they manage their coupons, I've finally stopped clipping every coupon I see. ...more

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

that doesn't mean I can't save.

Some day I'll live near a doubling store (I hope) -- in the ...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. As far as I can tell, he deduced that what I needed more than anything was a hobby that required a lot of time and energy, because, you know, I had those in spades. After a couple of months of couponing, here I am declaring that I'm not going to do it anymore and he can't make me. Read more......more

(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. When I first heard about it, I was excited and wrote about it here. After the show, I felt the need to talk about it a bit more because I felt that there were some parts of the program that were overly sensationalized. The last participant on the show was the owner/creator of the popular couponing site We Use Coupons ... MrCoupon/Nathan Engels. Nathan reached out to me and asked if I would like to interview him after the show. Definitely! ...more

I highly agree with you! Well said! I've also been following online couponing sites to save in ...more
