"Extreme Couponing" New TV Show on TLC


Unfortunately our money saving efforts keep us from getting the TLC channel, but watching this clip of TLC Extreme Couponing was awesome!  The best part for me was how ABC News starts by showing extreme couponers, then shows comments from a relationship counselor..LOL cracks me up.  I would definitely consider myself moderate, perhaps mild compared to the couponer who was dumpster diving with her kids...lol  To each his own.   I do admire the thrifty thinking.  :) Looks like a fun show.  Gonna watch it??

Extreme Couponing premieres Dec. 29th at 8pm ET/PT on TLC

UPDATE: Joanie from Krazy Coupon Lady is the one pictured above in the dumpster.  Check out her blog post about getting coupon inserts from recycling centers...you don't always have to get in. :):)

Wow, they really find everything to put on reality shows:) I am going to watch it. TLC does a good job of making reality shows interesting. Thanks for the info:) and I love your blog!

That was an interesting clip that you linked to. While it's great to get good deals, having 3000 rolls of toilet paper and 1000 sticks of deoderant is a bit much. If you're going to donate a lot of it, great, but if you're just hoarding it all for yourself, that's definitely not ok.
Thanks Christina!!

Debbie.. I know! What could you possibly do with it all? What a great way to donate though. Coupons sure make it easier for us to give more.
I watched that earlier. LOL! I did think the "use your OCD tendenceies for good" comment was funny. I don't know if I will catch it on TLC. We switched from Direct to Dish (to save money) and I don't remember if TLC is on our plan. But, if it is, I will DVR it. DVR is the best thing about switching!

Freezer Homemade Fries & Sauce

I LOVE fries!  I would make them more but it seems like a hassle when I'm trying to get dinner ready, kids are screaming, and I'm trying to dodge cheerios on the floor.

Then along came freezer fries and my life is far richer (lol)....not the ones you buy at the store that kinda look potato-like, but the real things.  They are also MUCH cheaper.   So instead of letting your potatoes sit around, and hoping that you remember to use them, you can make fries....yum....

To see my post on what to do with a 10lb. bag of potatoes go to The Coupon Project.

First wash and scrub potatoes ( I don't peel because I think it's miserable work)
Cut into 1/2 inch fries
Toss with oil (I usually use Canola)
Add salt and a little sugar (makes them crispy)



Place them on a baking sheets and bake at 475 for 20 minutes (they will only be half cooked)
After baking, let them cool on paper or dish towels Put in freezer on sheet (I have a small freezer so I used pie tins) Let them freeze solid (ab…

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."


The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!
