My Opinion on Extreme Couponing

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about extreme couponing and I honestly think it’s what you make of it. I don’t think you’re an extreme couponer if you use five or six coupons, but maybe that’s because I average 15-20 each time. But for the person that rarely uses them or even looks for them, maybe that is extreme couponing to them.

On the topic of stockpiling, that means different things to different people. I would never in my dreams buy hundreds of things that would take forever to use and I certainly, in no way buy things I wouldn’t use. To me that’s a waste of time and money. I can see purchasing products you know you’ll use and that are on sale and cheap with a coupon.

As part of the extreme couponing show they suggest you use a 3-ring binder with baseball card sheets for your coupons. I thought that was simply stupid and crazy until I went to the store with 20+ coupons and on three or four occasions I almost dumped them on the floor. I now have a binder and I won’t shop without it. I don’t have to worry about losing them on the floor and I like the fact that they’re all there because you never know when a store will have a sale on an item you have a coupon for and use regularly.

So what are your thoughts on extreme couponing? Do you watch the show and what do you think of all the savings those people experience each time? I like the savings we have had so far and I look forward to more savings as I learn more and develop a knack for the technique.
