The fourth season of “Extreme Couponing” begins with back-to-back episodes at 9 and 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 13 on TLC and features all new shoppers, stockpiles and strategies.
Details on a few of the standout savers included in the fourth season, provided by TLC, are as follows:
· Julie is a Colorado couponer whose dream job is to be paid to coupon. It looks like she’ll finally have her chance when she answers an “extreme couponer wanted” ad for a Sober Home for teenage boys. To land her dream job, Julie must prove to Aaron, the home’s founder, that she can score 2 weeks’ worth of organic products for just $150, a difficult task that is made even harder by the boys’ antics.
· In Georgia, couponing duo April and Chasity have outgrown their large stockpile rooms, and the only solution is to go even bigger. April convinces Chasity to join “the building club,” and the two of them go shopping for backyard storage sheds to house their stockpiles. When April’s husband Clint says he could coupon faster than April and Chasity, the battle lines are drawn, and the ladies put their husbands to the test by putting their coupon binders in the men’s hands and sending them to the store.
· Most people have albums of baby photos and family vacations, but Georgia couponer Rudy collects photos of her grocery hauls. After every shopping trip, Rudy spends hours meticulously setting up her hauls so she can take a picture of them and hang on to the memories of her supermarket successes.
· New York couponer Susan is the original coupon queen. She has been couponing for over 40 years and saved hundreds of thousands of dollars in the process, paving the way for younger extreme couponers. She even has a coupon robot that mechanically sorts her thousands of coupons for her for each shopping trip. To commemorate her 40th anniversary of couponing, Susan will attempt to break her personal couponing record – $519 for $20 – and prove that even after 40 years, she’s still got it.
