I am a 28 year old,newly-wed, born and raised in Los Angeles, California. I have a full time job in the visual effects industry and have had this extreme couponing habit for a year now. I have bought 10 newspapers at a time, been to the stores at 6am for the good deals, done six different transactions at one store, and on occasion cleared a shelf. I did buy 30 cans of tuna and 5 loofahs for $3.50. I was not a hoarder and you would never find stockpiles of pasta and toilet paper under my bed or in my wardrobe. When I left my apartment in the US, I had a stockpile of 10 sticks of deodorant, 10 tubes of toothpaste, 8 bottles of body wash, 15 razors, 20 boxes of pasta, 10 cans of diced tomatoes, 10 cans chicken noodle soup, 15 cans of tuna, 20 boxes of popcorn, 20 boxes of hot cocoa mix (my husband loves the stuff), and much much more… usually bought at no cost to me or for less than a $1 each.
Please post comments or send me an email about how this blog could be better, your tips and tricks, or general bragging about better deals you’ve discovered. I really hope you enjoy, learn new things here, and perhaps even change your life the way it has mine….
