Super Couponers Video

Did you watch Nightline last night? They did a great story about super couponers(video above).

What do you think? Do you consider yourself an extreme couponer? Thoughts?

I thought that the guy in the video is very close to being a hoarder. Although he is good at what he does he doesn't need a driveway full of jello. Donate it! He is a little too extreme in my opinion and others could be blessed by his donations instead.

Sample of Olay Body Wash

Walmart is again offering a sample of Olay Total Effects Body Wash. This is a new link, so it you ordered it a few months ago, you can request it again! Go HERE to request your sample.

To clarify, you can only print one VV coupon per item per account, so if need be, sign up your spouse as well.**
