    Thanks!

    I am with everyone hoping he donates a lot of his stockpile to his local food bank

    I have always been a frugal shopper and loved to save money. I am a university student and live off student loans which barely gives me enough money to pay my rent and nothing more.

    According to the article, they are talking about people like me.

    That being said, I think it's a very biased article, taking examples of people who take it to the extreme. While I might represent the "average" couponer according to A.C. Nielsen, the article does not go on to portray that "average" couponer. Do I have 150 bottles of Powerade in my pantry? Of course not. But that doesn't sell papers, does it?

    Yet another example of poor journalism, IMO.

    Interesting, though we are about at 1/2 that income level.
    One point about the income level, though - when we were making less as a household - say from $20-23k - we used way FEWER coupons, because they are in general not for necessities like real food - veggies, fruit, milk, cheap bread, pantry basics.... there are many for prepackaged meals and extras which when you are 'poor' you don't buy anyway.
