Calling all couponing queens

Did you hear about the new reality show on TLC? It's called "Extreme Couponing"? I am not making that up. It's a 12 week series focusing on people who go over the top when it comes to clipping coupons and saving money.  Like a woman who got 646 dollars worth of groceries for 6 bucks. Am I jealous of these people? Yes, yes I am. I am a bit of a coupon queen myself. I love the Bucky Book, www.mymadisonperks.com, and clipping coupons from the Sunday paper.  If the coupons are particularly good, I have been known to go buy an extra paper. But I think the most I've ever saved was about 6 bucks on a $30 order. And most of my coupons wind up expiring on my purse or in some pile on the kitchen counter before I ever get the chance to use them. I am a believer in "Coupon Karma." That's when I realize I have a coupon that's about to expire and know I'm not going to use it. I'll leave the coupon on the store shelf next to the item to surprise another shopper. Hey...I've got it. How about a new show called "Coupon Karma"? It would be kind of like "My Name is Earl," but instead of trying to right past wrongs to improve karma, people have to go into stores and stealthily hide coupons.  Imagine the joy on the unsuspecting customer's face when they get to unexpectedly save 50 cents on Suave shampoo! I think that show would be perfect for the Oprah's new network, don't you?

I watched the show they aired a month or so ago. My husband teases me about my coupon clipping, but these people are definitely extreme. There was one guy who at least donated a pallet of cereal to a food bank instead of piling it in his garage. Seriously people...do you need hundreds of toothbrushes and sticks of deodorant? At least donate some of this stuff instead of stockpiling it in your husband's man cave. Sheesh!
