  • i do it! i love it! not to the ext ream the ladies on the show go to! but i save a ton and get a lot of stuff for free! it takes time and money to build that stock pile but its so worth it! i spent $50 at walmart this week and i saved $100+ so im pretty happy with that!

  • I don't hoard, but I coupon to get what we need as far as bathroom and dish/laundry items go, I get that stuff for nearly nothing... then I have more to spend on food. But again, I quit at a limit of only what we can use or my sister/mom can use... my house isn't a store. lol

  • I wish I had the time and resources to do it. I do what I can but the most I have ever saved was about $45

  • I watched an episode that showed a lady dumpster diving for coupons.

    I'm not willing to do that.

  • I've always used a few coupons, but only for things that I would normally buy.

    I could never do it to the extreme! There is not enough time in my life for me to spend as much time as they do cutting coupons, finding sales and making lists.

  • My husband loves that show and he can't understand why I don't do that. It's a full time job! These people are crazy! It is very impressive though :)
