A little about us: We are not stay at home mom couponers (not that there is anything wrong with that) like most of the authors of deal seeking blogs out there. We are a couple in our 20s who just got married and have no kids! We began couponing heavily in 2010 and have not looked back since. And by "have not looked back" we mean we have not paid for toothpaste, deodorant, razors, air fresheners, shampoo, body wash, etc for years. Once we researched coupons and deals and got out of CVS with $50 in merchandise for a net cost of -$2.50, we were hooked! We are saving our money for a down payment on a house. With the use of coupons, we will get there faster than we can imagine!

About Extreme Couponing: We are very much against the TLC show and everything it stands for. We are all for saving money, but not hoarding or shelf clearing. Just because someone can get 68 jars of mustard for free doesn't mean they should. If you are here, or trying to learn how to coupon because of the show, we welcome you. Just know that we will not be using the tactics they use. The more people that act like those on the show, the harder it will be for us regular people to use coupons. The show has put an even bigger stigma on using coupons, as now people tend to look at good coupon users as "people from that show". We urge you not to support the show.
