I think it depends on the mental state of the person doing it. If it is simply cutting out coupon after coupon for the relaxation effect, I say no problem. But if the person purchases ONLY items that are covered by coupons, I suspect there is some problem going on. I knew a woman once that did this, and would drive to three different towns to save a dollar or so. Such a waste in gas certainly defeats the goal of saving money. The other thing is, people obsessed with saving money are tempted to purchase items they do not need and possibly will never need - another waste of money. And finally, I think the pride in feeling triumphantly frugal is probably a lot like the high others get from gambling - a very fleeting one at best.

Are you into extreme couponing? and if so, what are some of your methods/advice that you might have on how to embark on such a journey?

Is a poor person who refuses to use coupons ignorant?I have a family member who lives 4 hours away. She is VERY poor, but because I know she is causing her poorness I send coupons instead of money. Coupons I know that she needs like diapers, milk, and other high priority type things, I send them...

Do you believe you could "extreme" coupon?
by Christy Garrett 5 years ago
Do you feel that extreme couponing leads to hoarding stock piles of unnecessary items?I think it's great to save money on items that you plan on using, but why purchase 100 items that you may only use 1-2 a year. Why not give 99% of it to people who need it.
