Extreme Couponing on TLC in on Tonight!

Have you guys seen the show Extreme Couponing on TLC? It has aired only it's pilot episode so far, but they have decided to make it a recurring show. And it starts tonight! This season will have at least 12 episodes all about extreme couponing.

I would suggest watching it so you can see the incredible savings possible with using coupons. But I'd like to make sure you understand that this show does NOT show you what a normal couponer does. This show focuses on the extreme side- the people who make couponing a full time job and have stockpiles that take over their whole house. I do not promote hoarding by any means. 

So when you watch the show, please don't judge all couponers and think that it overtakes our lives like on the show. Many of us use coupons because it's the only way we can afford to put food on the table for our families. For some of us, it's how we manage to afford to stay home while our husbands work. With the economy in turmoil, more people are struggling to make ends meet today than ever before. And using sales, coupons, and stockpile is a great way to stretch your money further. Since I've been keeping track of my savings, I usually save an average of 65% on my groceries. A beginner can expect to save 40-60% on average. 

WHat is your opinion about the show? Has it inspired you to get started using coupons?
