Extreme - More Than Words
I love money. I love to make it, save it, spend it and read about it. To become a good scholar, I try to ensure that I devote at least a couple of hours each week to my "studies." I try to run my personal finances as though I would my own personal business, but some tactics that I read about are just a little too over the top. Even for me.
Have you heard about this one? As if TLC doesn't have enough reality shows churning, they are premiering a new one this week called "Extreme Couponing" that features the savings escapades of Tiffany Ivanosky, 35, who lives in Houston, Texas. For the premiere show, Tiffany purchased ,070 worth of groceries for a mere .92. Impressive? Of course. But I really do not want to have to rearrange my home so that I can make room for my stash of jarred peanuts and 1,000 rolls of toilet paper. Tiffany reports that she spends an average of three hours total per week dedicated to her "high-level coupon exploits" and feels that the time spent is well worth the ,000 she saves per month on her grocery budget. Amen. If you calculate that out, Tiffany is saving an average of 0 per week or making about .33 per hour for her efforts. Wonderful! But as dedicated as I am to trying to save money and avoid debt, I just can't get into the concept of extreme shopping.
I've seen these people in the grocery store. Two or three, sometimes four carts full of paper products and peanut butter that seemed to have multiplied faster than rabbits and a huge folder filled to the brim with coupons spilling out all over the place. Usually shoppers with this level of dedication hit multiple stores in a day. While I applaud their efforts, I just don't have their energy! For one, I work four, 10-hour days and, with the round-trip commute, they become fifteen hours. Fridays, I try to pay bills, balance my checkbook, run errands, write and exercise my dedicated dog. On weekends, I like to spend as much time as possible with my children and there's always tons of housework to complete before Sunday. I just can't do coupons like Tiffany does! The thought is enticing, and I'm sure the "high" of that level of savings is amazing, but I just can't see dedicating the little time that I have with my children to this kind of endeavor.
Am I wrong? Are you an Extreme Couponer? If I'm really missing out on something great, please let me know!

The ice cream came with a cricket topping It was crunchy and tasted like a sunflower seed. I asked the people serving to only give me one cricket instead of dumping on a spoonful. I couldnt stomach more than one after everything that I ate. I happily ate all of my ice cream, though, and waddled home
