Tonight, TLC will be airing a new show called Extreme Couponing. According to the TLC website:
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.
The previews I have seen show people buying huge quantities of items (like thousands of dollars worth) and paying next to nothing for them, thanks to coupons. But what I am left wondering is, despite getting lots of 'stuff' for basically free, are they really going to get anything they NEED? I'll reserve judgment until I watch the show and then I'll be back with my opinion.
Thanks to Mom's Plans for initially tipping me off about this show. Extreme Couponing airs tonight (12/29) on TLC at 8:00pm EST.
