Because they don’t tell you everything on reality television we are here to reveal the secrets of Extreme Couponing. TLC’s Extreme Couponing is really not about education it is more about entertainment. Our goal is to educate you and empower you to save money for your family.
We have been talking about how one of the myths of couponing is that coupons are only for processed foods, junk food or food my family does not eat. I also told you we were featured in the New York Times Magazine and many of the people writing in the comments accused us of only eating junk foods. All of this brought me to the conclusion that some people just need to be educated in the way we save money and still eat healthy. So for the past eight weeks we have been talking about….

But I have a confession to make…
Sometimes I Buy Junk Food
If I can get a good deal on junk food sometimes I buy it. I do not buy it every time it goes on sale. Buying junk food when it is cheap does not mean that we eat it for every meal. In fact we do not even eat it every day. We probably do not even eat it every week, but in the following situations it kinda comes in handy!
For Last Minute BBQ’s, Football Parties, Get togethers, Camping Trips and any road trip ect…
I keep on hand:

I never pay full price for junk food! If I can not get it for cheap I do not buy it. So I admit this stuff is not healthy, but when I need a quick treat for a party it saves me a TON of money to not have to go to the store and pay full price. I can just go to my pantry and pull out something from my little stockpile.
What do you have in your “treat” stockpile?
