Extreme Couponing – Don’t Stand Behind These People At The Supermarket
Don’t expect to see Extreme Couponing on screens in Australia as using coupons is not our thing. To my surprise Extreme Couponing is on our TV screens, it is currently being shown on Discovery Health! (Thanks Remued). MolksTVTalk tweeted about the show as he was in Canada and I decided to have a look on YouTube to see what it was like.
One word – trashy.
Coupons are an American phenomenon where you get discounts off items at supermarkets or shops. One of the women here got $1200 worth of food for $100.
It is like hoarders with obsessive compulsive types using coupons to buy 60 bottles of mustard and 90 cereal packets. I am not sure the point of having stuff you are not going to use. To be fair they do appear to be very organised in cutting and sorting the coupons.
Anyway you would not want to stand behind them in a supermarket checkout as they would definitely hold up the queue.
Extreme Couponing on Discovery Health Friday nights at 7.30pm and there are repeats throughout the week.
