20 Reasons You Do Not Get the Results on TLC

i have to admit that i have never seen the show “extreme couponers” – i have very rarely ever experienced the “crazy” that i have been told is portrayed. also, my stockpile is enough to sustain my family for about 6 months but is in no way considered “hoarding”.

this is a very interesting piece which explains how the extreme couponers portrayed on the show actually do it and why it’s not “real”:

I think that this is part of what frustrates me. I need big savings. I have 9 people to buy for and a very low budget to do so on and when I see them getting (as last night) $2000 worth for nothing I think I must be failing.

Thank y for posting this and showing me I’m not alone.

i usually save about 50% – that’s just matching coupons with sales.

Oh I knew some of those people were scammers. I’ve seen 1 lady be on the news because she was using coupons to make items cheaper, and the product didn’t even belong to that coupon.

And as it pointed out, a lot of those things, don’t even include the meat. And honestly, all that prepackaged food can not be healthy for you.

From some of the behind the scenes that I know, these couponers are asked to do things they normally don’t even do. I watched 1 episode and that was it.

I don’t coupon, but this was a good read. I do watch the show and have never thought that was authentic extreme couponing. But it entertains me.
