I'm hooked the first time I laid my eyes on TLC's Extreme Couponing show. I use coupons with my groceries once in a while, but never really exerted any effort into it, which explains why I only get few 0.25-.0.50 cents off an item. I didn't know you could get an item or items for free, or even get paid just to try a product! Boy, I have missed a lot and worse, I've been throwing money away for years! Where was I when people started saving money???
So, being a baby in this game is no joke. I thought it was just easy as clipping coupons from Sunday's newspapers and done, nooooo! If you want to get more out of your buck, you have to do some research, and spend a lot of time online to find out what's up for sale on your favorite store, what promos do they have, and see what coupons you can matched up on those items. It's time-consuming, but it has been fun so far for me. The thought that you would get an item for WAY less than its price is joy for me!
