TLC Extreme Couponing All Stars – Behind The Scenes

 

In honor of another week of TLC Extreme Couponing All Stars I thought it fitting to share more photos of behind the scenes.   The picture above is just after finishing lunch and  this was just before the shopping began.  I may look calm, but my heart is starting to race!!  There was so much planning the weeks leading up to the day of shopping.  By no means, does an Extreme Couponing trip happen in minutes or even hours!   It is weeks of planning and prep work.   As Jennifer, Shannon and I  started planning for the Extreme Couponing All Stars charity trip – we started scouting the store for the most recent pricing.  Watched the sales ad to see if there were month long sales to take advantage.   After a trek through the store with  a notebook and video camera, then it was home to hop on the coupon database and start searching for coupons.    The list and plans changed from day to day as we watched the coupons and sales.    After talking with St. Therese and learning of the needs of their organization, it helped us narrow down the shopping trip to items we felt would be of most benefit, yet get the highest total possible!  I mean — we want to WIN!!

Tonight Callie and Melissa will be on TLC Extreme Couponing All Stars battling it out for the supreme shopping title.   Who wins?  Only time will tell.   But what I know is both ladies are my kind of Extreme Couponing All Stars — they are all heart and if I lived near them I would want to be couponing buddies!

After watching tonight, do come back and leave a comment about your thoughts.

Extreme Couponing All Stars

Jen Freeman and Shannon Interview (How sad do our faces look!  What’s up with that? This is the funniest still video shot.)

I could not have pulled off our Las Vegas Extreme Couponing All Stars shopping trip without the help of the “Coupon Angels” ~ Jennifer and Shannon were a huge part of the planning and preparation for this Super Market Sweeps meets TLC Extreme Couponing shopping trip! Shannon was behind the scenes with all the planning and support.  Shannon shares her side of the story in our Extreme Couponing All Stars video.  I will be posting photos, the shopping list and more back story information over the upcoming days.

Extreme Couponing All Stars planning

Jen Morris wrote an awesome back story about our experience on TLC Extreme Couponing All Stars. She blogs for the Las Vegas Review Journal and you can see all her blog posts HERE.

 

Did you happen to see tonight’s episode of TLC’s new series Extreme Couponing All Stars?  This new series is based on a competition between previous show participants, but with a twist.  This time there are rules.  For example, shoppers must have a minimum of $500 in products before coupons and they must purchase at least 15 different items.  Then the clincher…they have only 30 minutes to complete their shop.  Contestants go head-to-head and the winner is decided based on the total percentage saved.  It’s almost like Supermarket Sweep meets Extreme Couponing, and it’s all for charity!Extreme Couponing All Stars Check Out

When Jen Freeman from Tip Resource asked me to help her with Extreme Couponing All Stars  and told me the premise was more about benevolence, how could I refuse?  Jen and I have worked together for almost a year now teaching couponing workshops in Las Vegas and California.  We have tons of fun together and have such similar couponing philosophies.  The tricky part to planning the Extreme Couponing All Stars trip was that between myself, Jen, and our other partner in crime, Shannon, we had to juggle planning and traveling over a few weeks.   We would sneak off to Glazier’s  to put down a plan of action, but then the next week different items would be on sale, we would have new coupons, and then would have to redo the master list.  It was tons of fun but a little unnerving as well. We knew planning for the Extreme Couponing All Stars show would be work!

Hello ~ TLC Extreme Couponing All Stars viewers.  The show was so much fun to film!  We shopped at Glazier’s of Las Vegas.   Jen and I laughed through so much of the day and were on cloud 9 when we donated all those groceries to St. Therese Center Las Vegas.

First, let me share how the whole original 2011 TLC Extreme Couponing show came about for me.  My dear husband filmed one of my big shopping trips and put the video up on YouTube.   TLC saw this video and contacted me asking if I wanted to be on a shopping show.  The Extreme Couponing series had not started yet, so I had no idea what the show was all about when I agreed to it.

So, back to TLC Extreme Couponing All Stars show when TLC called and said they had a new show and it was a challenge for charity, I was hooked!  100% of everything “purchased” during this shopping trip was donated!!   Our mission, The Couponing Angels – Jen, Shannon and I, was  to get the biggest haul EVER!   Let me tell you it was a challenge and took a great deal of planning.    One person will be declared the winner during the season finale.  I wonder who will be the ultimate “Extreme Couponing donator”?

Let me challenge you in 2012. When you get a great deal, buy a bit extra and donate it to a food pantry, pet shelter or just leave a package on the doorstep of a struggling neighbor.  As a couponer, you can benefit those around you by getting items and donating plus sharing your knowledge of how to save to help each other.
