OK, OK, we better just cop to the truth: We never miss an episode of TLC's recessionista series Extreme Couponing.
Sure, there's a lot of tawdry, exploitative "reality" to the project, but many of the women on the show are just doing their crazy best to stretch dollars and provide a little more for their families. The family featured in Wednesday's ep is just such a case. Three generations of one family, led by mom Antoinette, work to clip and organize coupons. As shown in the exclusive sneak peek clip above, Antoinette's little girl even collects surplus coupon circulars from her school teachers and helps with the cutting and organizing. Adorable! Wholesome! Really adorable!
We'll go ahead and say it: The family that coupons together is the family that saves (and stays!) together.
Extreme Couponing airs Wednesdays at 9:30 on TLC.
