I've been using coupons for most of my adult life. Like many people, I started really using them a couple years ago. It became extreme and yes even addictive. I purchased items we hadn't used, some good, some flops. I purchased at great discounting , got free items and even "made" money by matching sales and coupons. I wasn't in the extreme area of purchasing so much I had "to invent" storage solutions. My husband's work is seasonal, so I did stock up for the winter lay off. I started off with a binder and clipped every coupon. I purchased up to 4 papers a week and a 6 month subscription to All You. I spent countless hours clipping, sorting, organizing coupons and surfing the web and paper ads. Sometimes I would go to 4 stores a week. I was able to use and donate most all items I purchased. I averaged a 50-80 percent savings each trip. And then decided I was not saving as much as I thought after I added up the fuel, paper and subscription cost along with my time it costs. I...
Extreme Couponing Without Extreme Stress is definitely for those who want to save money. Who wants to save money? Let me think about that for a moment, ... everybody.
Saving money by couponing, as eloquently expressed in this book, isn't just a case of making numbers smaller on your grocery list. The savings you make in Walmart translate into extra money you have for other things such as mortgages, music lessons for your kids, utility bills, birthday presents, etc., etc.
However, this isn't just a book that simply tells you to collect coupons. It literally and very clearly explains every step of the couponing process from where to find coupons, how to use and organize them, where to find deals, the concept of stockpiling and much, much more.
The authors of this book have combined science and art into the craftsmanship of this brilliantly written, consumer friendly book.
I never really thought too much about couponing until my daughter started it recently. This book is like a coupon declutter course! It does a great job of explaining how to start off easy and how to do it with organization. I was never a coupon person, but after reading this book and how it explains what to do and what supplies you should have and how to go about it, I am definitely couponing with my daughter! Recommended!
