I recently spoke with a mom who asked me how to get started couponing. Her questions were not just about where to get coupons she had concerns about time and mostly she said that she had watched a few episodes of couponing show on TLC and did see in her opinion only saw a whole lot of junk food being purchases sodas, white pastas, candy , and frozen dinners. She said do you buy any good food with coupon.
Well that got me I don’t watch that show I told her because of the reasons she stated and that I noticed some of the people who have been on that show have often complained after the experience about the over the top ways the producers asked them to do. Most who were on that show said they don’t normally shop that way and that they didn’t feel as though they were portrayed accurately. Check out blogherfor articles and interviews’ with some of these couponers.
As far as the nutritious value of coupons well I have to say after going through cancer having two children with medical issues in my home we do not buy junk food and never really have. My kids have never had soda, or candy. I do bake you all know that, but I control the sugar the type of flour and amounts I make at a given time. All these ingredients I use coupons for.
