The changes don&#39;t happen until next Tuesday, and I&#39;m already planning one kinda big last trip. And I&#39;m trying to find a new grocery home...and I&#39;m still not sure HEB, Randall&#39;s, Walmart? I feel a little lost. <br /><br />But I have to say about the Extreme Couponing show - for me - it&#39;s just annoying because stores don&#39;t let you shop like that. You can&#39;t buy 100 of something and use a coupon on every single one. Not to mention it seems to condone shelf-clearing...and I don&#39;t like that either. I have a hard time believing that retail decision-makers would be watching the show and responding with a coupon policy. I suspect their decisions are based on what they experience in their stores...so that if people are couponing differently because of the show, then I think the show could be responsibile for coupon policies changing. But honestly, I think the couponers who will become *extreme* couponers because of the show will probably be a handful...not significant. <br /><br />I really think the show is more like their another shows...like Raising Sextuplets. It&#39;s just entertainment. I&#39;m not going to go out and birth six babies at once just because someone on tv does. But it&#39;s fun and crazy to watch...just like extreme couponing.The Martin Familyhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/03156008323880493602noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-569688858142828321.post-70446586632630969292011-04-06T15:54:36.345-07:002011-04-06T15:54:36.345-07:00Hey there!
