Now This Is Extreme Couponing!
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Have you ever wondered what all the hoopla over extreme couponing is? We have all heard stories about women who have gone to the grocery store and come out with over $1,000 worth of groceries for only $.25. Well, I honestly do not believe that too many people have the time or the patience to pull this feat off. However, I have learned over the past few months that extreme couponing on a smaller scale can be accomplished quite easily and I am going to show you how you can be an extreme couponer who can benefit both your own family and families who are less fortunate.

After pursuing the hobby of couponing for several months, I now have a hall closet that is supplied with personal care products including bath soap, body wash, men's and women's deodorants,, toothpaste and toothbrushes that have cost only a few cents for each product. I also have a stockpile of laundry detergent, dental floss, razors with refill cartridges and shaving cream that has cost approximately 10% of the retail cost of each product.

Along with my personal stockpile for my family, I have managed to accumulate many personal care and food items suitable for donating to my local food pantry. These special items have cost me exactly zero dollars and zero cents,, as they were purchased with the money I actually made by using my couponing strategy.

The novel ideal, which was inspired by Glenn Beck's Restoring Love 2012 program, involves using manufacturer's coupons, along with store sales and special promotions to actually receive store credit from such retailers as CVS, Walgreen, Target or Walmart. Using this credit you will be able to purchase food items that normally you would not be able to get free just using coupons. In a store like Target, you can actually use their store coupons stacked upon a regular manufacturer's coupon to obtain items either free or very cheaply. For instance, I was able to walk out of Target with almost 10 pounds of IAMS dog food without paying one red cent, not even tax.

If you have a little spare time and would like to learn how to get your own stockpile started, you will want to learn all the guiidelines that you need to make your extreme couponing experience fun for you and beneficial to your community. With just a little organization and a pair of scissors you can truly make a difference for the families, including yours, that need a little help to loosen your tight budget.
