Extreme Coupon Shopping is Serious Business in Abilene [VIDEO]

You will react one of two ways, either “wow, look at all that money she is saving” or “are you kidding me, she should do this when all the check-outs are open! Somebody get me a manager, I’m not waiting behind this psycho shopper!” I know this because, it happened to me when I went to check out at the local Wal-Mart Super Center. I was struck behind an “extreme coupon shopper” who by the way saved about $330.00, and the couple behind me who flew into a rage and was demanding to see a manager. I had never seen extreme couponing in real life before.

I had only heard about it, and I think I’ve got a daughter that participates in this insane retail ritual. Extreme Couponing is real and those that practice it are in my opinion “addicted”. I recently found myself stranded behind this lady who took nearly 30 minutes just to check out at the local Wal-Mart Super Center. I tried to move to the only other checkout that was open at 2 in the morning, but there was another extreme couponer (her friend) in that lane as well. What I saw was eye opening and unbelievable, nearly $400.00 in groceries and the young lady only paid $77 after all her coupons were deducted.

After I got home I decided I would check into the extreme coupon ritual on the internet and low and behold there are websites that cater to this retail phenomena, wherein one only pays a fraction of the original price. Then my boss forwarded an email from a gentleman that is a “stay-at-home dad” and a member of a local stay at home dads network that does extreme couponing too. The man even shared a couple of his favorite sites; Coupongirl.com, Coupons.com and Couponcodes.com. I’ve checked them out and they are a good source for coupons and online discount codes too. I hope that these tips will help you save some money.

Here are a couple of videos on “Extreme Couponing”
