  • I did try it. YOu have to be incredibly organized to do this. Also for me it was not a money saver because I try to steer clear as much as possible from "packed" convenience items. The key of this game is stockpiling which also just hits a nerve for me as I find it to a degree a bit stingy and wasteful. I know after a while some people donate their excess but I dunno, JMO.
    If you do this you might try getting into a coupon train and save as many coupons as possible. Try and get coupon sections from as many sunday papers as possible etc. If you have a small place too, I think this game is even more difficult.
