    Default Extreme Couponing on TLC

    Someone else has to be watching this show. These people are crazy. Not only do they buy all this shit for free, but they buy it all. This lady has 3000 rolls of toiletpaper that it would take her 40 years to use. WTF? She just bought 268 boxes of pasta. Who the fuck eats that much pasta? And it's not like they donate it to charity, they keep it all. It's like Hoarders, but it's not junk. I think they should donate it to charity, it's not like they paid for it.

    I've never heard of it but I watch TLC. All that shit with no purpose. You're right though, if they donated it to charity then I would say rock on.

    Maybe they should call "Hoarders - coupon division."

    If you eat 268 boxes of pasta, you're going to need 3000 rolls of toilet paper.

    I actually knew someone that did this. Her cupboard were FULL of stuff, I mean some things she'd be like, "I don't even eat that but it was FREE!" OK well donate it then, don't let it sit in your kitchen and go to waste.
    All you can do at life is play along and hope that sometimes you get it right.

    Haha, well actually I don't think a person could ever have enough toilet paper, but....pasta? Doesn't it expire at some point? I wouldn't want to be eating 5 year old pasta anyway.

    It is a form of hoarding for sure. Some of these people have basements FULL of stuff they have absolutely no use for. To be fair it's neatly stacked and arranged on racking and shelves so they aren't living in total squalor like other hoarders but if the thrill is getting stuff for free then giving it away to worthy causes should be even more rewarding.

    That's sort of my grandparents. Their dryer has food in it, it's hidden in cabinets, drawers, everywhere. I once cleaned out their cabinets and fridge and threw out a bunch of expired food (all the expiration dates were a year past or older) and they got mad at me. It really can get to be a problem.

    The last guy they profiled does give some of it to his local food bank.

    ^^ I saw that, and that was cool cuz he gave 4000 boxes of Total Cereal to the food bank, and I think he paid a total of $156 for it. But 60 hand sanitizers? 300 toothbrushes? What does he need all that for? Can't he take enough toothbrushes for what he will use?

    The middle lady started doing it because she was poor and had no money. But she seemed to by shit she'll use, not to extremes.

    But that first lady was nuts. She had a ton of Gatorade, which does have an expiration date. She got 150 candy bars, all for free, which I would have gotten those and gave them out at Halloween. Woulda been the most popular house on the block! But the rest of it is way too excessive.

    I caught this show for the first time. Craziness.

    One couple spent 5 or 6 hours in the store and made a bunch of their friends come so they could use the coupons (it was one per customer). If you add up all the newspapers, printing, gas, etc. they spend getting the deals I wonder how much it would be.

    Right now I am watching an episode which involves a pantry of diapers and no kids....
