OK I was just 1/2 awake in bed last night, couldn't quite get to sleep, so I turned the TV on. It was 10:00, my normal bedtime since the dogs have been waking me at around 6 am these days. There was a show on about couponing, yes coupons, those paper things that come in the newspaper on Sunday. Actually the show, I think, was called "Extreme Couponing".
Here is the official blurb from the TLC site "Extreme Couponing profiles four shopaholics who use coupons to save thousands of dollars and amass huge stockpiles of goods.These shoppers go to the extremes, dumpster diving for coupons and spending hours a day searching the internet for great deals."
I have never been one to clip coupons. I have been blessed in not "needing" to, and also it is a time thing. When I decide to go grocery shopping, I make a list and go. But this show really demonstrated that I could be doing better, just taking a few minutes a week. I could at least look at the store sales, and the coupons that come weekly in the mail. Even saving a few dollars a week would add up. :-)
