Just wondering if any of you do extreme couponing like on the TV show? If so, how do you go about getting started?
Wow thanks for the tips!! I am definitely going to look into it. I dont think I wanna be an extreme couponer but it would be nice to seriously cut my food bills every month.
You are welcome. I have a problem with extreme couponers. They have gone too far to buy hundreds of same items. I have seen some of their blogs. I have to admit stores did the right thing on limiting coupons but the problem is extreme couponers can come back next day to buy more without violating the policy unless a manager says no more. Some even signed up for rain check to get more. The question is how much more do you need? I'd rather them to balance it out.
People buy items on clearance at Walmart and Target and resell them online like Amazon and make fortune. Some even quit their jobs to make a living for this. Reselling is not illegal, but when it involves taxes and warranty, that's when it becomes complicated as long as you follow the rules. About 2 years ago, a guy gave up his job to make million dollars by reselling things online. There are a few articles about him.
If you plan to cut down the food bill, buy a extra freezer. If you look up fresh food on sale, buy bunches of them and steam them. Then freeze them for 6 months. I only use glass containers and Mason jars. That way I don't have to buy plastic bags anymore. My boys eat so much food.
Have fun shopping!
Wow this is awesome advice thank you! What I do not agree with and have a problem with is people reselling what they get for free or practically nothing. If you do get a whole bunch of the item, I believe you should be donating it to other people who need it, not reselling it. The only thing I would wanna really stock up on is stuff you go through really fast. Like soap, a little extra shampoo and conditioners, laundry soap, toilet paper and etc like that. I wouldnt mind having a small food stockpile, but here is my thing. I would worry that eventually having a huge stockpile like some of these have, would eventually attract mice and bugs. To be honest, I doubt I would get into extreme couponing in the way they do on TV. I would just like to seriously cut my food budget.
