Last night, while I was folding the freshly-laundered clothes, I watched Extreme Couponing on TLC Ch 62. I was amazed at this young man who shopped for around $600+ with his family and only paid 5 bucks! It was because of the discount coupons he got from the newspapers.
And then there's this mom, named Pam, who's really OC that she has a "personal grocery store" inside her kitchen. Dream ko yun, muthers! Medyo exagg lang yung kanya 'cause the goods were like nakatikas-pahinga, very aligned and all. Hihi. But yeah, bet na bet ko din whenever my grocery cupboard's full. So when Pam got to go grocery-shopping using her coupons (which she gets from public recycling bins), she even made a flow chart of what she would be buying. Actually, mas magaling yung nauna sa kanya. She bought a total of $400+ worth of items and she still paid $80+. Pero kiber, if I was in her situation, super happy ko na din ha.
If we have couponing in our country, how far would you go for it?
