Well, the drama of reality TV has finally come to the world of couponing. TLC is airing a new show next week called Extreme Couponing. It profiles 4 extreme couponers who spend hours a day dumpster diving for coupons and looking for good deals. They have huge stockpiles and save thousands every year.

I can only imagine what it will make couponers look like! I hope they keep the crazy factor down to a minimum. I realize that in order to get viewers to watch the show, they have to find the most extreme, overboard couponers. I just hope they also profile some balanced couponers who also save thousands a year without spending hours a day couponing. Highly unlikely, but a girl can hope, can't she?

Here are the details about the show:

Station: TLC

Date: December 29

Time: 8:00 PM

Duration: 1 hour

I'll post another reminder on the 28th and I look forward to reading your comments about the show!
