Reality Stars on TLC's 'Extreme Couponing' Save $40,000 on Grocery Bill


Last year, Engels supplied pointers on coupon clipping after competing in "Nightline's" coupon challenge, which pitted him against fellow super-couponer Jill Cataldo.

He says anyone can do it.

"If you want to throw your money away, you're more than welcome to do that," said Engels. That's not his preference, or an option for the other extreme couponers who have palpitations at the cash register.

At times, he's only actually paid one percent of a $680 grocery bill. "It does take time but if you have the time and are willing to put the effort into it you can do it, too."

It's their new-found expertise. One, Rebecca Routson said, "I have been blessed with this talent. Being able to coupon is what's allowing me to enjoy my life."
