TLC Extreme Couponing | How to Get Started


The new season of TLC’s Extreme Couponing is slated to start tonight. Since this is  tv, we know that Extreme Couponing  does not show us REALITY. I wanted to give a couple tips to Learn to Coupon – without being extreme. You can save a ton of money and be ethical. 

:: To get started couponing, you really need to understand what coupons are and how they work.  Take a few minutes to read this post here about the anatomy of a coupon.
