If you are in the "coupon world" you may have heard a lot of buzz out there lately about Extreme Couponing.

A friend of mine (thanks BFF :-) passed this tidbit along to me and I think its pretty funny that the TLC show called Extreme Couponing made it on NPR. I love, and am an annual supporter of, NPR and am happy they talked about the show.

I don't think its funny the same way Jerry Springer does in this excerpt from NPR's Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me show when Sagal asks Jerry "three questions about the most boring TV shows we could find":

SAGAL: This is great though. You still have one more chance. So here we go. The last question: as you know, there is a reality show for just about every hobby or activity. Which of these is a real reality show that's premiering this very spring? A: Pest Control of Orange County?

SAGAL: B: Mad Crochet? Or C: Extreme Couponing?

Ms. O'CONNOR: Wow.

SAGAL: They seem to like the latter.

Mr. SPRINGER: Yeah, I think I do too. Yeah, because most people - yeah, I'll say that.

SAGAL: Extreme Couponing?


SAGAL: You're right, Extreme Couponing.

Here's why I think its funny....because its REAL. It these tough economic times, we are all looking for ways to save money,and coupons can help us do that, or at least with our grocery bill.

NPR is mainstream news for the people. So if the TLC show Extreme Couponing is being talked about on NPR, then you know its message is being talked about eveyrwhere. I think that is great, people should talk about coupons more, and get educated more on coupons how to use them properly.

I disagree with Sagal when he says "the most boring TV shows" . But then again, I may be a little biased since I will be on the show :-). (Don't forget to watch for the series premiere on Wednesday, April 6 at 9/8c & 9:30/8:30c on TLC)

If you are an NPR fan, listen to the show and let me know what you think. Or come over to my Facebook page and lets talk about it.
