What are your thoughts on Extreme Couponing?
Does a family of 2 or 4 or even 6 actually need 125 boxes of pasta, 100 bottles of Powerade? 100 micro ramen noodles soups?
Don't these things have expiration dates? And if their house is already stockpiled floor to ceiling, WHY do they continue to shop every week?
Do you think that they waste more money buying 100 candy bars, and 30 boxes of cereal of each brand they can being THEY EXPIRE within the year? And some items like sodas within a few months?
I think its a waste of money buying so much in extreme. EVERY week. Like WHO needs 30 bottles of ketchup, mayo, mustard? Unless you are a BIG family like the Duggars! Sure!
I would think they throw out more food stuff than they eat, wasting it. So HOW is that saving money?
I think if I actually had the knack for doing that, and buying so many groceries for under $30-70 a week that I would open up a food pantry and help my community being my family and I could not eat all that before it went bad.
I understand all the paper products and soaps and shampoo's and NON-Perishables...but foodstuff? It DOES expire within the year.
Am I wrong?? OR do you agree?
Just curious as to what others thought. I'm all for saving money in today's times but I don't see how all that effort put into it is beneficial EVERY week buying more than they need, unless its to help others.
