If you are anything like me and get a huge buzz from getting stuff for free, then you will probably love watching those daft shows on TLC, Extreme Couponing and Extreme Cheapskates. I love watching them for a little inspiration and although in the UK we can’t coupon to the extent they do is the US it’s still fun to try.
A couple of weeks ago I decided to have a couponing trip, I used to coupon a lot but had lost my confidence recently as some stores treat you like you are stealing from them which can be embarrassing and it used to make me angry.
I’ve decided to give it a go again and just put the goods back if they won’t take my coupons. My trip was a success and I paid a £1 for all the goodies below.
I keep all my coupons in a little folder and wait until the items are on offer to maximise the savings, my advice would be to plan your trips, make a note of what you are looking for and enjoy the spoils.
There are some great Facebook pages and blogs popping up about Extreme couponing in the UK, ExtremeCouponingUK and Almost Extreme Couponing UK are a couple I’ve spotted.
Between the time I spend comping, freebie hunting and making videos I can’t take it to the extreme but every little helps as they say.
Happy Couponing x
