Check out an example from one of our forum users OKCouponGuy:

I hope you ladies don't mind a guy crashing the party. I am one of the many that thought coupons were just not worth the hassle, until I watched the TLC show "Extreme Couponing" last week. Since then I have jumped in with both feet and thought I would post up the successes for the week.

I learned here that Harp's had the double coupon week going on and yesterday the wife and I came home with $150.65 worth of stuff for $85.10 OOP. I had 6 Sunday papers (from friends and family) worth of coupon plus what I printed.

That was nice but today I did even better. I read somewhere on either this or another forum about 13 watt GE Energy Smart light bulbs being on sale at Westlake Hardware for $1. These bulbs are equivalent to the 60 watt incandescent bulb which we use around the house. I decided to search Ebay to see if I could find some of the $1 off of one bulb coupons I had read about.

I found a guy selling 60 coupons for $3.85 mailed to my door. The coupons arrived yesterday and today I went to two different Westlake Hardware stores to get my light bulbs. I first went to the BA store on 81st and 145th, the employees were very helpful and gave me no problems. I only got 37 bulbs at the first store because I didn't want to clean them out. Second, I went over to the store on Memorial and 91st to get the other 24 bulbs, again the employees were great. The regular price of the bulbs was $3.19 each or $194.59 for 60 bulbs. After the $3.85 I paid for the coupons and the $5.19 in sales tax, I saved a little over 95% and $185.55.

I love when my wife clips coupons because it saves our family money, what I cannot wrap my head around is the techniques used. I don't see how buying 60 long-lasting CFL light bulbs save me money; I don't need that many CFL light bulbs. I don't change light bulbs in my house often enough to use 1/8 of those light bulbs in a one year period. I see these coupon clipping/saving techniques and what I realize is you have to buy a ridiculous amount of items to save money and the examples use on TV shows is people buying an exorbitant amount of Tums or CFL light bulbs, things that are needed but not in crates full of this stuff. My family needs eggs, chicken, milk, rice, you know food not a crate of turkey stuffer.

My wife loves your blog

I guess ways of saving money between a woman and a man has a great difference. Anyway, when it comes to saving money, you better go for foreclosed homes. A lot of people want to own a home. Given, the industry is volatile and it really is not as good an investment as one might thank. One can save money by purchasing a foreclosed home, but inspect it cautiously before buying.
