It appears that Season 2 of Extreme Couponing is starting up soon. I was very disappointed in the teaser clip that came out this week.Â The couponer profiled on the video definitely doesn’t practice Golden Rule Couponing AT ALL!
You can see the preview of Extreme Couponing Season 2 here.
One of theÂ Extreme Couponers – “Michelle”, is a shelf clearer.Â Shelf clearing is a selfish act that gives couponers a bad name. It’s so frustrating to get to the store with your list and coupons only to have half the things you wanted missing from the shelves.Â I’m not talking about taking the last 2 or 4 items, but completely clearing the shelves is justÂ ridiculous.
Her selfish shelf clearing habits have also caused her to have a stockpile that is way over the top.Â I have a fairly large family and that stockpile is way overkill even for us.Â I can’t imagine she’d ever use it all unless she stopped couponing for several YEARS!! This selfishness is also evidenced in the way she talks about and treats others on the show.
I can’t imagine smugly looking at another shopper and stating “Sorry…early bird gets the worm”.
Yeah, but doesn’t the early bird take what she needs to feed her family& leaves the rest for others?Â #justsayin
I wish they would do a show about responsible couponing. I will not watch it because it promotes greed and selfishness.

I agree season 2 should be taken off the air,,that is not responsible couponing,,,
I will not be watching it. Everytime someone sees me in the store. They ask me if I am like that show. They can look in my cart and see I AM NOT!!!
Wow, that clip is so disturbing. I have been couponing since the 80’s and I have steadily noticed how difficult it is just to get a few items at times. What a beotch. Wonder what she would do if the man had gotten there before her and had one of these boxes in his hand — she seemed just creepy enough to try and take it from him.
I have to say that watching the show first got me into couponing. I didn’t have dramatic expectations on what I would get, but I have learned how to save a great deal of money. Mostly with the help of fellow couponers and great web sites like this one. I follow the rules. People like this one give couponers a bad name. I have had a great deal of items when checking out before but found a great way to calm the people behind me in line. I try to look at what they’re getting and see if I have any coupons they could use. This usually makes them really happy. I encourage others to do the same.
I hate the show! I’ve only ever watched a few pieces of it here and there but I specifically try NOT to watch it. It’s getting such bad press and it’s making all couponers look bad. Not a fan. At. All. Wondering what it would take for TLC to pull it off the air? I wish the CIC would get involved and expose some of the fraudulent practices. Not just clearing shelves but complete misuse of coupons. Ugh!
I think these extreme couponers and especially this show has made couponing hardier for everyone. My daughter and I have both noticed coupons are not as plentiful as they once were and stores now have more strict coupon policies. I wish TLC would not air Extreme Couponing Season 2. I will NOT be watching!
There is NO WAY I’m watching that crazy show! In fact, I’ve sent many complaints to the producers of the show telling them exactly what I think and that it should be taken off the air, or at the very LEAST, it should be renamed … How about “Extreme Coupon GREED” … or “Selfish Hoarders Give TRUE Couponers a bad name”. That show makes me sick!

Sorry, I refuse to watch this show! They are giving couponers a very bad name and causing some stores to change coupon policies. Their GREED is hurting all of us that DO follow the rules.
What a shame that this show got picked up for another year!
This is why it’s back for another season because it stirs things up in the couponing world and causes controversy so people will watch it. The name alone suggests that, so it’s really unfortunate that we the regular couponers have to suffer the consequences of media. This is probably why I never really indorse any T.V. watching, movies, video games, celebrities etc… rarely do I sit down to watch T.V. This is why these shows, movies, video games, and celebrities get paid so much and have “fame’ because we as a society let it happen. Who are watching all these things we are (society) not all of us but most. Especially the non couponers who watch because they just aren’t informed as how to actually coupon the right and ethical way, they see this and have a negative view of most couponers. I could go on about T.V., movies, some video games, and celebrities in general not being very upright and moral these days especially for teens and younger ones but I won’t, it would take me to long and turn this post into a book! ha ha So I will step off my soapbox now and give you guys something to think about I hope. P.S. This isn’t suppossed to be a negative post just my opinion.
Just want to say..I got started using coupons a while back. Then so Extreme Couponing..this give me an idea. My husband and I donate food items etc. and we are on a limted income. I agreed it’s not nice to take it all. If there is two items left I take one. Because you never know the person who come behind you really really needs the item. Not just to look at, dust and keep it on a shelf. If, you don’t at home, atleast learn to share in public. Please treat others as you would like to be treated. I have a lot more to say, but I need to learn to share and let someone else speak up..lol Will not be watching the show…
