It will also depends where you live too. What you see on extreme couponing looks like it is kind of over done there a little bit. Since I live in Canada over here I don't see as many kind of deals like some people have in the States might run into.

That is one of the greatest support of all the arguments that I make with my husband. My husband love to use these kind of coupons and love to save a lot. He always asked me to have shopping through using coupons but I dont actually like the items on discount because either they are of low quality items or some they are having some other problem. I believe that quality products are always expensive and they always have little discount. I have been deceived by these savings plenty of time as once I bought USB with 60% discount label with $14 and found same USB with 20% discount with $11 price in another store. So searching for more discount resulted in a loss. But he insists on savings and I hate to spend lots of time on savings. No doubt sometimes you can find a better coupons from a site like www.ezcouponsearch.com but it does not mean that you will find the coupon for all the items you are looking to buy.
So that the is one reason and some others that you can find in that article you shared above. I want these habits for young guys who are just starting their career life and in difficulty of earning money.
