5 Practical Lessons from “Extreme Couponing” Season 2

With all the hoopla about TLC’s first season of “Extreme Couponing,” it’s no wonder Season Two is eagerly awaited by many fans. Starting Wednesday, the maniacs of the supermarket aisles took to American TV screens once again to show shoppers how it’s done.

1. Shelf Clearing

No matter what the extremists say, clearing a shelf of every item is just plain rude. Sure it’s okay to go for big bargains,but it’s also important to remember the lesson we all learned about “sharing” in nursery school.


2. Teach Your Children

Another couponer teaches her college-bound son a few tricks of the trade. What a great way to ensure the next generation learns frugal lessons before it’s too late! If you want to extend this courtesy to your children, make it relevant by encouraging use of both print and online coupons.

3. Building on a Dream

Do you get the feeling TLC learned the public wasn’t too crazy about the hoarding aspects of couponing? This season focuses on more than filling your home with endless boxes of toothpaste. One segment in Season Two tells of a couponer with the worthy goal of building a dream home with coupon savings.

4. Feeding the Masses

Is it possible to feed 280 wedding guests on just $150? Apparently one woman is giving it a shot this season, but thankfully your family’s food requirements are likely more manageable. In addition to using coupons for groceries, avoid paying too much by reading 8 Overpriced Grocery Items to Skip from SavvySugar.com.

5. Share the Savings

A featured couponer this season feeds both her family of seven and 200 fellow parishioners on just $100 a month. Now there’s a good lesson. Extreme couponers often get a bad rap, but most of these thrifty consumers donate part of what they purchase.
