dreadfulpenny: (Er)
In lieu of a life update (because there is no life update), have this. I have spent some of my time watching "Extreme Couponing" on Netflix. I will never-ever get this time back. These people? Crazy.

Ok. Example. I just saw a set of twins who purchased something like forty bottles of Maalox. They got them for around forty cents per bottle. Logically, unless you're drinking a LOT of Maalox (in which case I strongly urge you to seek professional attention), most of the medicine will go out of date before they can use it. I will be the first person to tell you that the expiration dates on many things can sometimes be overlooked for a short period of time. However, it comes to a point where you just cannot ignore it and would be doing more harm to yourself than good by taking the expired medicine.

This kind of thing happens in every single episode. One guy actually seems to make good use of his stash by donating. He just dropped off a big load of personal care items to a group that's making care packages to send to soldiers overseas. But the chick with no kids who has filled her home with diapers? She says she's saving up for when she has children of her own. She is thirty-one and lives with her sister. She is also single.

My favorite so far was the chick who lamented about the change in policy regarding coupons and how many transactions per person. She was fussing that the policy change was really putting a cramp in her plan. Well, princess, it's people like you who CAUSED THIS IN THE FIRST PLACE. Reap what you have sown.

I guess if this is what makes you happy, you know, go for it. I'm not watching any more, but only because it's pretty much the same episode over and over.
