TLC's Extreme Couponer did not clear the shelves as TV would make you believe
HERE is a blog entry done by couponer Amy from MO who was featured on TLC's Extreme Couponing. She has been targeted on various discussion boards because of her extreme purchase of croutons. She says that she did not clear the shelves as pictured on television. The show also didn't show her donating her croutons because showing donations is not sensational or "extreme." Some people also find that giving anonymously is more satisfying than calling attention to themselves.
