Newspapers are mysteriously vanishing from racks across the country. Thieves are swiping Sunday papers from driveways, and others are digging through people's trash looking for discarded newspapers.

The craze is being fueled by TLC's Extreme Couponing...do you agree?

I think that show is partly to blame, the other is just the economy in general. Everyone is having to cut back so people do what they think they have to do to save a buck.

I've always checked my Sunday paper before buying to make sure the coupons weren't swiped from it. I've been doing that long before the show was on though.

 I don't think it is entirely to blame, I have seen people taking more than they paid for before the show aired
