Have you guys seen this show?  I was a bit in shock when I watched this.  I mean, I’m pretty sure these people have some sort of OCD when it comes to coupons.  Who will ever need 150 candy bars?  Come on lady! 

Hubs and I briefly (and let me emphasize briefly) tried to use coupons.  Between the cost of the newspaper and the being only able to buy certain items, that were generally not very healthy, we gave up.  Now we do almost 100% of our grocery shopping at Trader Joes where we can buy organic for an extremely reasonable price.  And the great wine for cheap certainly doesn’t hurt.

The lady in the video above is one of the worst I’ve seen on the show.  Other “Couponers” on the show have extremely organized stockpiles, donate their overhaul to shelters and don’t buy 150 candy bars just because.  It’s not shown in this clip but this particular couponer has a couple rooms with shopping bags full of haul she’s never even unpacked.  She’s like a combined shopaholic/hoarder.  Did you see all that ketchup?  Who wants a shopping cart full of Hunts anyways?

All I’m saying is I could use my 30 hours a week that she spends shopping for the best deal at my desk earning a paycheck.
