On TV: Extreme Couponing = Extreme Ridiculous

Did I ever mention my extreme hatred of coupons? Sure, if I happen to have/find a coupon for something I was already planning to buy, I’ll use it, but too many people waste countless hours on couponing. This sad addiction is the subject of TLC’s latest “why people are sad” series called Extreme Couponing.

This video speaks for itself. The man and women in the video took a day off of work to use coupons that they paid $70 for(!) when they could have been earning income for the day’s work and not buying as much crap. 150 Butterfingers — who needs 150 Butterfingers? Obviously these folks have a big problem with poor eating habits, and the coupon situation just helps them be unhealthy. In any case, after this preview, I honestly can’t bare to watch any more of this show  (it makes me want to punch my monitor) but I’d love to hear from you if you saw any of the episodes… does it get any better? Does anyone do couponing right?
