Showin' Some Love: The Krazy Coupon Lady

Since I've mentioned TLC's new show Extreme Couponing a couple times now I think it's time to Show Some Love for non other than the star of the show, Joanie aka  The Krazy Coupon Lady.

Joanie, The Krazy Coupon Lady

Joanie is part of the two-mom blogging team that operate TheKrazyCouponLady.com, one of the best and most well-known couponing sites online today. Joanie appeared in the pilot for Extreme Couponing, the episode that started the whole debate over couponing and brought recognition to just how much money can be saved by shopping smart & with coupons.

I personally think that Joanie is a perfect example of who should be featured on Extreme Couponing and got a bad rep based on the other overly extreme shoppers featured on her episode. Many of us coupon out of necessity- we need to save money but don't want to sacrifice certain elements of our lifestyle that we've grown accustomed to. That is why Joanie started couponing. (You can see a clip of Joanie's episode here, scroll to bottom of page and select the video titled "Dumpster Diving for Coupons.")

Some of the shoppers featured on the show exhibit, in my non-professional opinion, characteristics of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. One woman appeared as if she was going to have a panic attack if she didn't get to purchase 300 boxes of pasta, or something crazy like that.  Some also appeared to have hoarder like tendencies. Others, like Joanie, coupon for items their family needs, uses or can donate and enjoy couponing as a hobby. Some of the things she said on the show were taken out of context, but I'll let her explain that in more detail here.

Anywho, I think Joanie and Heather are fantastic and I love their site. I read it everyday and get some of my favorite couponing/shopping/money saving tips from them. You should definitely check The Krazy Coupon Ladies out (no pun intended)! If you are new to couponing, stop first at their Beginners page. Enjoy!
