Retail therapy from the couch.

On the anniversary trip, the husband and I watched an endless marathon of TLC’s Extreme Couponing. What is it about gluttonous people buying 82 bottles of unneeded mustard that draws us in? Anyway, I was thinking about how much coupon use is perverted, but also how much people don’t use them.
I hate buying things for full price. A) I’m a tightwad. But B) I also like to buy lots of stuff at one time. And if I’m paying full price for something, it limits the quantity of my total purchase.
I’ve talked before about awesome coupon sites for food, but here’s another one for everything else! Coupon Chief has a million coupons (not quite an exaggeration) for everything else in your life: clothes, restaurants, books, and other retail items–kinda puts retail therapy in a whole new light. And what I like about it the most is how it’s organized in categories such as holidays, occasions for gifts, and so on. Or you can just do a general search.
I tried out a couple of the coupon codes (most of the stuff is for online shopping) and they seemed to work just fine. In fact, they each code comes with a percentage rating of how well it did work, so if you’re unsure, just click the codes with the highest working percentage. And if you can’t figure out how to use the cite, Coupon Chief has this awesome tutorial video that explains every detail.
And if you’re like those Extreme Coupon people and are completely obsessed and addicted to coupons, you can sign up for the email updates so you never miss a percentage off. I’ll just search the site when I’m ready to purchase, that’s good enough for me.
