Thanks, We Use Coupons!
I blogged on it too - we won't be following it as most of the people they follow get to shop at stores that TRIPLE coupons (none in WI do) and they don't limit the coupons or make an exception for the store policy for the episode.ReplyDelete
In WI, we have limits on how many we can use at one time...so we have to work the deals with multiple transactions.
Besides: who needs 1,500 tubes of deodorant, LOL?
Yes. We do currently have more restrictions on how we coupon in WI: minimum purchase requirements, limits on # of coupons that can be doubled (& few stores that do double), no tripling, etc. This makes it tougher to go to the extreme demonstrated in the show.ReplyDelete
However, most people (including myself) would not want to go to that extreme, anyway. I just want to save my family as much $ as possible on items we can use (now or in the relatively near future: 3-6 mos or so). I certainly don't want to have a stockpile that takes over my home. It IS ridiculous to stockpile enough deodorant to last 150 years. LOL! :-)
The show is inspiring to me, though...and fun to watch (except for the shelf clearing part, which I think is disrespectful to other shoppers)! The "extreme-ness" displayed on the show is, of course, not the "norm" for the vast majority of couponers. But, it makes for some pretty good & entertaining TV, IMO! :-)
It's just not even possible here in Madison . I would loVE to get the bill down to pennies like these people, but they are never buying for weekly shopping (meat, milk, diapers, bread, juice etc.. They are buying sports drinks, toothpaste, deodorant etc ... Show me someone who can extreme coupon under our circumstances, coupon rules etc... And I will call them the coupon queens.ReplyDelete
