Reader Question!

Hello out there!

Learning how to be an "extreme couponer" can be difficult. So here is your opportunity to ask any questions you may have.

Here are some questions I have been asked recently:

"Where do you get your coupons?"
I get coupons from the internet, from magazines (like All You), newspapers, and from in store. There are so many ways to get coupons now!

"How do those people on the show do it?"
Well, those people follow along with the sales, gather lots of coupons, and find what will be free or give them overage (money back). For example, I bought 8 packs of razors the other day at Walmart. Each pack cost $1.97. My coupon was for $6.00 off of 2 packs.

$1.97 + $1.97 = $3.94
$6.00- $3.94= $2.06 (this is what I got back for every 2 purchased)

I used this overage to pay for my other items! Only certain stores will allow overage though, so pay attention to coupon policies!

Alright, now it is your turn! Just post your questions in the comments section!
