Default Re: Does extreme couponing actually work??

Anyways, I have heard about it and seen the shows and wonder what you guys think?
What they don't tell you is that while they technically got $300 of groceries for $5 at the store, they had to buy $400 worth of Sunday papers to get the coupons. Not really, but I don't think the deal is quite as good as they make it out and a lot of it depends on where you live and if stores have douple or triple coupon days. There is a lot of work finding all of the deals, so you need to figure opportunity cost in there too. For me, it's not worth wasting 4-5 hours of my weekend to save a hundered bucks, I'd rather have the 4-5 hours of time to do other things.
