So I have seen this show on TLC and heard about it on the web. These people who work 60+ hours a week cutting coupons and seeing the best way to use them. You use a few coupons each time you shop isn't bad. Its these people who use hundreds of coupons each time they shop are hurting the economy. I saw this woman on the show who ended up getting money back at the grocery store. Do you know what the store needs to do to get reimbursed for the coupons? Do you know that it kills the stores profit for a couple of weeks until they get reimbursed? Then you see people on the show breaking up their orders so they can use the one per order coupons. Then you get the people who have their spouse do a separate shopping. Its just all bullshit. Then you have the women who committed fraud on the show "Extreme Couponing". TLC obviously doesn't care about getting the woman off the show because they haven't responded to several requests. Then there is another woman who takes her kids to dig through the trash with her? What the hell is TLC thinking putting this on TV!? Yes the economy is shit right now and money is tighter in households. In order for us to keep the economy going we need to SPEND money. Especially on stuff that you need like food. This is just another scam people are doing to save or make money. I don't care what you say to sugar coat this. Using hundreds of coupons for each grocery store trip is just not right.
