Do Extreme Couponers Do This In Your Area?

Around here extreme couponers buy things and then re sell them at their garage or yard sales.

We have one lady, she will buy a ton of things with coupons and get them super cheap, and sell them cheap. For instance a box of Apple Jacks might be about $2.50 at Kroger, she probably paid 25 cents, and she sells it for like a dollar or a dollar and a quarter. Same thing with other items, they are usually considerably cheaper then retail when she sells them.

I have seen other people do this besides her and they all say they are extreme couponers. I am going to a sale today from an extreme couponer.

Now some people..they are greedy..they try to sell it for what it retails at or sometimes more. I don't buy from them lol

No, but then again I don't know of any extreme couponers around here.

Yeah the one lady, she started doing it years ago, before the extreme couponers show hit TLC. Others followed suit after the show came on.

Yes, there are a couple around me that do this and one sells on craigslist.

I have also seen a blogger in my area as well sell some of the items she/he has gotten to review as well.

Of course these items and such are sold below cost so I am sure it helps people out.

 Isn't that illegal?
Maybe just in Canada but everything says on it "not for resale" or something to that affect...
