    • Vgirl...one of our FAB40 girls...Karen Green teaches couponing and after talking with her...she says the show demonstrates scenarios that really do not happen.  As she calls it...“couponing fraud“.  She also states that stores do not give back money to a customer.  If you get it free..you get it free...but you are still subject to sales tax.  Also ...if they shopped at those particular stores all the time, the cashier would know who they were. Also...if the show has a camera inside of the store and show any shelving etc..then the show has to pay that store money.  So....it’s all about sensationlizing the show.
      I do like to watch it....and if these people DO donate some of their stockpiles to the less fortunate or to a food bank..I say it’s all good.  But if they are just doing it to be a hoarder...I don’t like it.  I’m all for helping others and if you can save a ton of money to allow you to cut down your debt, tithe at your church, or to save for your retirement or whatever...there is nothing wrong with that.  

      To answer your question on where you would find so many coupons if you don’t have a printer...the answer is...in your weekly Sunday newspaper.  I buy about (4) and get any extra coupons from people who do not want them.  You can also buy coupons online for l0 cents...different amounts plus the shipping.  What you spend in buying the coupons online and the newspapers is nothig compared to what you save.  

      I don’t see how they save so much in one trip...that is why I think the managers override stuff just for the show but ordinarily they would not do it for you and I.
