Teaching people to save money is so very rewarding for me. I enjoy teaching coupon classes, talking about stockpiling and the reasons why I bought 72 cans of tomatoes one year. I do it because I want other people to know what I know – it’s possible to save money on anything and everything you buy. You just have to have patience. And a good set of shelves.
There are a lot of good couponers in Houston. There are a lot of people who will teach you how to save the most money, without resorting to eating nothing but Yakisoba and Mahatma Rice. Life is not a TV show. Please recognize that Extreme Couponing is not real life. This is not how real people grocery shop in real stores with serious coupon policies.
And the backlash from this show continues to grow. There was a huge bust of fake coupons in Arizona this week. Over $2 million dollars was seized.
Think on that for a moment.
That’s how much was seized.
How many $.55/1 and $1/2 and free coupons had they actually produced?
I don’t know and I don’t want to know.
If something seems too good to be true, that’s exactly what it is.
Happy clipping (the right way)!
