When you hear the word Extreme Couponing, you probably think of negative things right? But what if it’s done right? Personaly I think “Extreme Couponing” is learning the tricks of the trade and mastering the skills of rolling giftcards, +UPs, RR and Balance rewards – to maximize your savings and building a stockpile over time. My friend Crystal sent me her shopping trip and she can do just that! I am excited to start sharing her trips every week to help you learn these simple tricks so you can do the same thing for your family. Even if you don’t have these stores in your area, seeing how it’s done – will help you figure out scenarios and deals that help your family make ends meet.

More about Crystal:
Crystal has been couponing for 3 years. She is a stay at home mom. Lives in Washington with her hard working husband and two children. To plan and execute shopping trips like this she usually takes about 3 hours broken up between Saturday mornings and evenings to plan her shopping trips, using ads and Coupon Blogs. She uses a two sided coupon binder that is all enclosed for the rainy weather we have. One side food, other side non food. She makes a plan and has all transactions written down and coupons attached, so its not confusing for herself or the cashier when checking out. She stores each transaction and coupons in a ziploc bag for each store, so she doesn’t have to lug around her 16lb binder. She has learned the Extreme Couponing tricks of rolling giftcards, +UPs, RR and Balance rewards! It’s a lot of work but she finds it a challenge and thats how she contributes to her family’s budget.
