UPDATE: Check out Marci’s Thoughts on TLC Extreme Couponers. Would you like to get started couponing? If so, also be sure to check out the “Welcome New Readers” article. It’ll help you to get started!
Ok, this show is going to get me all fired up!
After watching the almost seven minute long preview, this is not extreme couponing it’s more than that!
I have a problem with the stockpiles that grow beyond 10 deodorants, 20 packs of toilet paper and hundreds of jell-o’s. Seriously C’Mon?!?
1. Sales come around again. Typically the sale cycle will come back around in 6 months, if not SOONER!
2. Stockpiling 1,500 deodorants is just pure wasting space in your stockpile. You can get FREE deodorant EVERY MONTH at SEVERAL stores.
3. Toilet paper that is from floor to ceiling is just ridiculous. Granted it doesn’t expire, but, again the sales cycle comes back around. I know the days of FREE Cottonelle TP are over, but, $.50 for a 4 pack is still a GREAT PRICE.
Because of these “extreme couponers” it gives you and I a bad wrap. I can no longer go to my local Kroger store because the NEW manager thinks that when I place a special order that I’m going to sell the products at a garage sale. I’ve tried to educate the Amelia store manager on more than several occasions of who I am and what I do!
Please Nathan, let me know what stores let you special order 1,100 boxes of cereal or even the 300 tootbrushes! I can’t even order 60 Crest Toothpastes! Inquiring minds wanna know since we live in the same area!!!
I personally donate items to several food pantries on the east side of Cincinnati and welcome Nathan and Amanda to participate in a donation drive with us to donate items from their stockpile and clear some space!
Be sure to watch Extreme Couponers on TLC tonight at 8 pm EST. I’m sure I’ll have some more response to this evening or tomorrow morning!
