I have health issues so I am going to be taking some time off work. I have a wonderful husband who totally supports this decision, actually it was his idea. I want to do something to help out at home during my time off. I have decided couponing would be something I would enjoy and could probably get pretty good at. Any suggestions from anyone would be appreciated on how to get started. Does anyone in Tulsa have double coupons up to $1 anymore.

Your article 10 Negative Results of Extreme Couponing did not mention the one thing I find most negative: coupons are often for things we don't need and lead to an unhealthy diet. 75 bottles of soda and 120 packages of chips, 90 cans of Pringles and 20 frozen apple pies - - what kind of eating habits does this display?

I'd like to learn to be more efficient with coupons, but I'd like to use the coupons to support my shopping, not let the coupons dictate what I buy.
