With shows like TLC’s Extreme Couponing, and the vast community of savings bloggers out there, it’s hard not to become completely enthralled with how people are saving so much money by using coupons. What used to be an hour spent clipping coupons out of the Sunday circular has turned into an art form of sorts, and for some, even a full-time job, with the payoff being saving the biggest dollar.
In 2011 alone, Americans saved $46 billion by using coupons, and while it is estimated that 92.5 million internet users will use online coupons this year, people living in the U.S. still throw away $57 billion worth of coupons every single year. That is a whole lot of savings that has and continues to go to waste!
