My guess is that you found me because you want to learn how to extreme coupon. Maybe it was because you were watching Extreme Couponing on TLC or a friend loves to coupon.
Extreme Couponing means different things to different people, but many of you may wonder “How to Extreme Coupon?”. By one’s definition, I may be an extreme couponer; I do get great deals and spend very little out of pocket every week, but I do not get hundreds of boxes of pasta for FREE at one time.
I am a huge fan of ALDI and there are many times when I would rather go to Aldi to pick up some things to make one of my freezer cooking meal plans.
In case you want to try one of my meal plans for free, submit your email below and I will send it right over!
When watching the Extreme Couponing show, I am amazed at these men and women and all the work that they put into coupons. Honestly, if I had the time and the coupons I would do it too! It takes years to build up a huge stockpile like the ones they have, I wish I could feed my family off of my stockpile for a year. I could feed my family for about a month off of our freezer, which is a great accomplishment for me.
I have coupon for 8 years and still love couponing. I actually wrote an entire book about it, it is called How to Coupon Effectively.
If you are here visiting my blog for the first time and are interested in learning how to use coupons, I have some great resources for you. The most important piece of advice I have is this: don’t expect to go out tomorrow and get $1,000 worth of groceries for $60, it takes time and practice.
I heard from many people that came here after the first airing of TLC Extreme Couponing back in December 2011, and many of them quit using coupons already because they felt defeated. They were discouraged that they couldn’t do it like the people on the show, so that being said….give yourself some time. Couponing is a learned skill, it does take time to learn the tricks, but I hope to help you understand the basics and get started off on the right foot!
What I can help you do is turn 2 hours per week into $5,200 per year! When couponing and planning out your meals strategically, you can realistically save thousands!!
