Non-Extreme Couponing

I have had fun at Walgreens the past two weeks, and I managed to save over 60% both times. I didn't take a picture this week, but here is my loot from the week before.


As you can see, I may never need to buy shampoo or deodorant again! But...I would much rather buy it now at anywhere from free to $1 than later at $4. Clearing out a cabinet to store it is totally worth it in my opinion!

I didn't watch the new extreme couponing show on TLC, but the reaction from the "couponing world" hasn't been great. I can imagine. The large (huge) majority of couponers are just families and individuals trying to save a little money, not people out there taking it to that extreme. You can read what Jenny from Southern Savers says about it here if you are interested.

Tim and I want to watch at least one episode so we can make fun of the crazy people. My crazy sister-in-law posted this article on her FB this morning and I read it. I'll give you this, what she had to see made sense to me. :-)

You inherited this from your Poppa who could not resist a sale even if we wouldn't use it for ten years. A number of years ago when he read there had been a coffee crop failure in Columbia he accumulated 60 lbs of coffee.
Remember it is only a saving if you really need that item which of course in the case of the coffee, we certainly did. LOL
Love you and tell Max I am missing him.
