Wednesday Rant

This show gives me hives. I get the premise of wanting to save money. Trust me- I get it. But I do not get clearing out shelves at grocery or drug stores- so people like me, can't get the one can of cranberries, bottle of mustard, jar of pickles or bottle of aleve because YOU had to get 93? Seriously?
And I laugh. You clear the shelves and then leave your extra coupons? For what? Me to hang on to the coupon and hope the store restocks the item while its still on sale? Psshhh.

I especially love when you are standing in line and say- I could never afford this if I didn't have coupons. Honey- no one could afford 89 bottles of Tylenol, 36 packages of diapers and 49 bottles of mustard all at once.

Now, don't get me wrong. I love coupons and I get crazy giddy about a good deal. I just don't think that its right to clear out shelves so others can't get the things they need because you chose to wipe the shelves down.

Sorry girls for the rant- this show gets me fired up! {Yep, the southern-ness just eeked out on that one!}

I am a pretty serious couponer - Like the kind that has a binder full of coupons.

But I think the most "extreme" I've ever got was buying 4 of the same thing at one time.

I'm honestly completely disgusted by the show and how it's breeding this army of obsessed and inconsiderate couponers.

I witnessed a lady clearing a shelf at Target one night of something I wanted to buy ONE of. It's insanity.

So yeah, I didn't actually mean to rant on like that but I'm just so glad someone else "gets" it. :)

I agree with you! I think I would do the stocking up on items thing, but not to such an extreme! they get insane... and probably because of that show companies will stop releasing as many coupons.... the stores have already started talking about it. :/
