A hard slap of reality, with a fish slapping dance

Most people who are couponing now have come to it because of the TLC show "Extreme Couponing".  The problem is a lot of them think they can walk into any store and get 99% savings.  That is just not the case!  Normally people will only get about 20 - 50% savings on trips.  You will only be able to get big savings by doing research, and coupon matching.  And even with lots of research, it won't come easy!  But let's all be real for a little while.  Even 50% savings can be hard to come by.  I feel like I'm doing good if I save 30%.  Keep in mind 30% savings is average.  Right now my June average savings is about 49%, which is really good.  Thanks for reading!
