When Does Extreme Couponing Get Greedy?

Featured BlogHer Network Post

Even though I've been known to extreme coupon, I'm not a shelf-clearer. Unless there's only one left, but that doesn't really count, in my opinion. I have, though, many times arrived at the store with my coupons all ready to find the shelf totally empty. And it pisses me off. I found Talina's post regarding shelf-clearing -- especially of toys in discount stores like Walmart -- had some points worth thinking about the next time I go to take advantage of a deal.

Just because you can doesn’t mean you should. If everyone was courteous instead of mad greedy when these sales pop up more would be able to enjoy and benefit. Plus, greed breeds more and more greed which only makes it worse for next time.
