Extreme Couponing...sortof

Have you ever seen that show? They go through sales papers and coupons and get $800 worth of groceries for $50.

I'm not so sure that show's real.

I've done coupons for years. Not to that extent, but I go through coupons and clip the ones for things I actually use. Not once have I been able to get something for free, even when it's on sale.

For example. I went to the store this morning, a handful of coupons in my purse and my list.

Charmin toilet paper. $5.99. I had a .50 coupon that doubled to $1.00. Final price $4.99. Not free.

Cherios on sale for $1.49. I had a $1.00 coupon for two. $1.00 from $2.98 is $1.98. Okay, $1.98 for two boxes of Cherios isn't too bad, but it's still not free.

Glad trash bags $6.99. $1.00 coupon. Final price, $5.99. Still not free.

Maxwell House Coffee on sale for $5.99. .50 coupon that doubled to $1.00. Final price $4.99. Again, not free.

If you plan things right and use your coupons for what's on sale, you can save money. By the time I was done, between the Kroger sales and coupons, I saved $70 total. Do I believe you can get that many things for free? No.

I had an open mind. I tried watching the show. Not once did they show the whole list. That's what I want to see. I want to see what they bought, for how much, and what the coupon was. I bet money you couldn't eat for a weak off what they actually bought.

I would love to meet someone who has actually made it work so I could see how it's truly done. Because in all honesty, so far, I'm just not seeing it..:/
