COUPON EXTREMISTS

I just finished watching another episode of Coupon Extremists users. One lady spent over $1500.00 after her coupon deductions, she only owed $61.00 and my best was the lady that spent $650.00 and paid about $2.50 for her groceries.

I thought I was a coupon extremist. I will spend one day out of each month, while my family is out, making up my monthly food menu and grocery list, comparing store circulars, clipping coupons, printing them off the computer and shopping. My best is $950.00, after my three large stacks of coupons I paid only $79.00

Even if I cannot use the food, I will either sell to another person at 75% off store prices or donate to my local food bank.

To me its a challenge every month, to see if I can beat my last month deal. Dedication is the key, I have four kids and run a in home toddler preschool, so I have to be really good at this. So has anyone else joined the Coupon Extremists?

Nope but i did like the guy on the show that donated almost all the free cereal he got.  The food banks there must love him.

My advice is to look through all the circulars, shop, your local super stores (they take coupons also) shop on double coupon days, and NEVER purchase anything that does not have a coupon. Every known brand has a coupon online.

 no, but I wish I could save more with coupons. The commissary accepts coupons up to 6 months after their expiration date, but we dont get flyers with coupons in them.

How do you find out when double coupon day is? Does every store have that. I guess I can just call the store an ask LoL I'm getting all excited haha
