I've really been wanting to figure out how to make the whole coupon thing work - and this "extreme couponing" seems awesome - BUT here's the thing. Most of the products I'm seeing these people buy aren't products I would use, so it seems like a waste. For example, one guy had like 300 tubes of Crest Toothpaste. Which is okay if you use Crest, but I don't believe in Fluoride, so we use Toms. I've NEVER seen coupons for Toms. And I'm seeing the same thing for LOTS of other products too - soap, dish washing detergent, laundry soap and so on. I don't use the chemical filled options that you can easily find coupons for. But if you can actually earn some "cash back" by getting the other stuff (that we won't use) should I simply not buy it and loose the money or should I buy it and give it to charity or what?
Also, does anyone know where I can find coupons for things like Method or Toms of Maine or Seventh Generation or whatever... You know, the Greener stuff? I would love coupons for that stuff.

I don't usually get things that I don't need. If its free or cheap though I will get it and donate it to the homeless shelter they always need personal hygiene products.

Do your schools have any disadvantage families? Friends that are just scraping by? For health and beauty items sending them to troops overseas would be a great thing to do as well. I adopted a solider for awhile and thats what he asked for.
