Extreme couponing, and other extreme things.. (Edited 11/13/12 10:48PM by cubsgirl)
As I sit here and watch the show extreme couponing, all I can think is wow.  These women are either, amazing or stupid. First off, amazing in the fact that, they literally go into a store buy 1,000 worth of stuff and pay anywhere from 5.00 to being owed 5.00 by the store. That's amazing and I know I could not do it.

  Stupid in the fact that they, spend up to fifty hours a week finding, printing, and dumpster diving for the coupons. I think get a forty hour a week job and keep you wouldn't have to jump into dumpsters maybe. And also because they get 100 bottles of baby aspirin and got no kids. Makes no sense to me. 


They also have to spend up to 10 hours in the store doing these shopping sprees, put the items into sometimes up to  30 different transactions.   It makes me tired just thinking about it. 


  Ok, so what extreme things have you seen that you just would love to do or, say no way!

To the EXTREME, I rock a mic like a vandal
Light up a stage and wax a chump like a candle
Nyce Nyce baby (half) vanilla, Nyce Nyce baby


That's all I got. Sigh.

there's something called extreme fishing where you leap out of a low flying helicopter onto the large, deep sea fish of your liking and wrassle it into submission.

(this may not actually exist, and if it doesn't, the person who made this up on the fly to gullible me needs a trophy.)

There's something called extreme frisbee, but I have yet to figure out what all it entails. I can't care enough to research it.

These extreme couponers are ridonkulus. And I hate it when I get stuck behind them in line at the store. Once in a great while one of them will let me go ahead of them but more often than not, they don't even look at the people behind them to see what they might have. It's always then that there's only one lane open at the grocery store. I mean, good for them, but I'm with you...I don't have time for that.

Don't get me wrong, I feel like a super shopper when I use my 3 dollars worth of coupons. But, my God, no way could I do that.

Probably. My husband and his CG buddies call it "Extreme Frisbee" but I'm sure it's the same thing.

I'd love to do extreme water sports or extreme snowboarding.  The only problem is I don't know how to do the beginning level of either one.indecision

If it's the same thing it's very fun.  It's basically football with a frisbee, but that game gave me a black eye once.

I like extreme chocolate desserts. Had Publix bakery counterperson introduce me to one that is really tiny, really really really good, and cost $3. 59

When i say small, it's barely 2 inches long by 2 inches wide by 3 inches tall.
