TLC's Extreme Couponing - Bad Examples For Couponers

TLC's Extreme Couponing (in my opinion) has lost it's luster.  I'm an avid couponer and I watch like most of you, with an incredulous expression.  It is beyond me why someone would buy and store enough toilet paper to last 40 years!  However, last week's episode with Amanda Ostrowski was painful to watch.  She appeared overbearing and downright rude to her husband who was attempting to be helpful (but apparently not helpful enough or quickly enough for the bossy Amanda).  She claims her couponing 'high' is similar to being on crack or having "done a bunch of crystal meth."  Please!  Let's compare ourselves to drug addicts?!!?  I am appalled.  The Supemarket News reports:
"Amanda Ostrowski starts her mission by scrutinizing online coupon forums to find the latest deals. She then marches into her local supermarket to preview sale items. Hours later, she heads home and seeks out coupons that match the sale items.

"Armed with about 1,000 coupons she purchased for $70 from an online clipping service, she later returns to the store. She proceeds to fill up nine carts with hundreds of products, most of which she'll get for free.

"Welcome to the life of a super couponer, subject of a new TLC reality show called “Extreme Couponing,” airing each Wednesday at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT."
There is absolutely no coupon etiquette displayed on the show.  With Amanda especially, there's no etiquette shown towards her husband or anyone else who gets in her way!  "Marching" into her local supermarket is an apt description and my perception was that I certainly wouldn't want to get in her way.  What has happened to common courtesy and respect?  Coupons are misused, store coupon policies are relaxed or lifted for dramatic effect, and large quantities or items are special ordered for the show!  This is a 'reality' show with very little 'real world' truth.  When teaching those in my classes how to be more effective couponers we discuss how to obtain enough coupons for their family, the proper use of coupons, coupon fraud, and store coupon policies.  It seems each of these practices are trodden under foot in the TLC series.  Supermarket News continues:
". . . the Coupon Information Center, an Alexandria, Va.-based organization that fights coupon fraud, is disappointed in the show, according to Executive Director Bud Miller.

“We view it as a missed opportunity,” Miller said.

"That's because, rather than explaining how to maximize coupons in an appropriate manner, the show creates unrealistic consumer expectation from coupons. Among the CIC's concerns: The show's producers prearrange all the shopping trips, the show is heavily edited, coupons that are rejected at the checkout are not shown, and certain activities may be in violation with the terms and conditions of coupons, said Miller.

“The show is all about exploitation, and nothing about learning,” he said."
My couponing experience is exhilarating.  When I'm in the grocery store I often talk with other shoppers and even share coupons I won't be using.  I save an average of 55% - 60% on all my purchases and still find time for our eight children and 15 (almost 16) grandchildren.  I don't 'dis my husband' or family to coupon.  I probably spend more time blogging couponing deals each week to help others save money than I spend planning my own shopping trips.

TLC's counter to the Coupon Information Center's comments:
"TLC spokesman Dustin Smith countered that the show was never intended to be a couponing tutorial.

“This is a docu-series of behaviors; it's not a how-to program,” he said."
The show has definitely created an increased interest in couponing, but please remember that this series focuses on behaviors - some of them boorish.  If you're looking for the how-tos you'll need to spend time with someone who lives in the real world.  Visit with someone who can help you save money and have a life at the same time.  It's possible to work couponing into your life without letting it take over your life. Concentrate on learning what you need to know to help your family save money and time - then share what you've learned to help others in your sphere of influence do the same.  It just feels good!

Memorial Day - Decoration Day 2011

 Memorial Day.  Monday, May 30, 2011
In Flanders Fields
John McCrae, 1915. 
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields. 

In response to John McCrea's poem, Moina Michael wrote:
We cherish too, the Poppy red
That grows on fields where valor led,
It seems to signal to the skies
That blood of heroes never dies.

After reading this poem, you might have a better understanding of why veterans each year sell those red plastic poppies in an effort to raise money for veteran's groups around Memorial Day and Veteran's Day.  

For so many of us, Memorial Day is a day off from school or work.  We go to barbecues and take advantage of Memorial Day sales.  Memorial Day is considered the unofficial start of summer.  I think we've forgotten the real meaning of the day.

Memorial Day is not a happy day.  It is a somber occasion to remember those who have given their lives for our country.  For those who have lost loved ones in war or who have loved ones currently deployed overseas they will tell you this is not a day of celebration.  This is a day of remembering sacrifice.  The day was originally called Decoration Day and began in the Civil War era when the graves of those who died in action were decorated with wreaths.

I hope we'll all take a minute to remember.  To be grateful for the blessings of liberty we enjoy and recognize the price paid for that liberty.  Please take a minute to reflect on and respect the sacrifice of all that some have made for all of us.
