Extreme Couponing – healthy?

Hi! It's Patty - one of the bloggers for Dustin.  I just happened to turn on TLC and that new show called Extreme Couponing was on and caught my eye.  In the past I have tried to use coupons to save money, but honestly have found that as far as food - there really is not a lot of nutritious items that have coupons.  I find that the majority of coupons is canned soup, boxed meals, cereal, soda, … [Read more...]
