Couponing for the Rest of Us: A Review

Who hasn't seen an episode of Extreme Couponing and secretly wondered if they could be saving alot more?  I think the majority of the people on those shows should also be on the show Hoarders.  I read this book by Kasey Trenum and learned alot.  This author not only explains the couponing terms but shows how a coupon works.  I really liked the way Ms. Trenum walked the reader through the process.

This book isn't going to make you fill every nook & cranny with stuff you don't really need.  In Extreme Couponing for the Rest of Us the author encourages a healthy surplus and also giving the extra to those in need.  If you want to learn about couponing I recommend this book.  There is also a couponing blog ( by Ms. Trenum.

I have learned alot and look forward to saving on the things that my family needs/ uses.  I used the strategy outlined in this book and spent $100 at Target and saved $50.  My kids have got really into the whole couponing thing.  My 5 year-old loves cutting out coupons and my 9  year-old wants to find coupons for his favorite toys... well he can dream.

I was given this book by the publisher in exchange for this review.  All opinions are my own.
