extreme couponing

Have you seen this new show on TLC?

Wowzers!  I'm all for clipping coupons and trying to save some money, but these people take it to a whole new level.  I have to admit it is fascinating to see a grocery bill go from over a $1,000 to just a few bucks but it's pretty obvious they have an addiction to it.  Many of them speak of the "rush" or "thrill"...calling themselves "shopaholics".  They buy stuff they don't even need just to see their "stockpile" grow.  One gal said her stockpile was almost as beautiful as her family...yikes.  Seems to feed into the stereotype of Americans...over indulgence.

All that being said I am going to try and do better with my coupons.  :)
