I am all for saving money, but sometimes I am amazed by the crap people buy just because it is on sale or they have a coupon for it. I was looking through the food coupons the other day and noticed that most of them were for foods that lack any nutritional value. Extreme couponing is now on tv and so many more Americans are trying it.
I understand the thrill of saving money and getting things for free. However, this free stuff is not benefiting our health…we will pay the price later. These coupon foods normally contain a high amount of saturated fat, sugar, sodium, and cholesterol; all of which can lead to a variety of health problems. Healthy food can be inexpensive too!
Do you use a lot of coupons when you shop?
