"Extreme Couponing" show coming to TLC

Get excited, at least I am, about the TLC Channel's newest reality offering, "Extreme Couponing."  Starting April 6, viewers can watch profiled so-called "extreme" shoppers who are able to walk in a grocery store armed with coupons and a bit of shopping savvy and save big.  Not $10-15, but hundreds consistently.

I am looking forward to it. But, I am not going to recommend all of the strategies they discuss, one of which seems to include buy a lot of bulk food in advance.  And, the bulk food purchased neither looks all of that healthy nor totally appealing.  Jello for a year?  Nevertheless, it should be entertaining to say the least.  Hopefully, the shoppers profiled, or ones they inspire, do not end up on another TLC show, "Hoarders."

Enjoy.
