My "Extreme Couponing"

I have been hooked on TLC's show "Extreme Couponing". I figured I might as well give it a try. I've been clipping coupons for 3 weeks now and have quite a few in my "coupon organizer". I scoured the weekly ads for Walmart, Walgreens & Dillons trying to match sales, coupons and register rewards to get me the best deal. I would say my shopping trip was pretty successful for a beginner!

So what do ya think!? Have you tried "extreme couponing"?


  1. Wow! That is incredible! I want to try it but not sure I have the patience. Great job on that and on your blog.. looks great... :)

  2. Thanks so much Shannon!! It did take me probably 2 hours to make my lists & search the ads online before I went & I spent another hour shopping, but I think the more I do it, the better I will get! (always wishful thinking haha)
