I am amazed at the couponers they are profiling on Extreme Couponing on TLC! Who watched and what are your thoughts?

They are only 11 minutes into the show and I am already shocked at the glutony. The first lady has over 10,000 items in her stockpile and it is just her husband and herself. She is getting ready to use 1000 coupons she bought online to buy 9 (yes NINE) carts full of groceries (mostly junk and processed food and pasta, it appears). Clearly they don't have a 20 coupon per day minimum!

In the coupon box above, I posted a link to a story with a number of clips from the show and a discussion about how healthy/unhealthy this type of behavior is for these folks.

I do agree with the expert in the video that is it different for every family and for some it was a healthier situation than for others.
