EXTREME ON PURPOSE
All of us are constantly reminded of the number of families impacted by the United States economic status. We all know of persons who are not able to purchase adequate amounts of food and personal necessities because of financial restraints. How many of these extreme shoppers regularly share their bounties with needy persons in their respective communities or provide items to food banks? If the show Extreme Couponing serves as an indicator it's safe to say there's not a whole lot of sharing going on. Maybe a better name for the show is Organized Hoarders. If an individual has the time, talent, and ability to walk up to a cash register and spend a fraction of the actual cost I ain't mad at them. However, it would be more palatable if these avid shoppers were Extreme On Purpose thereby sharing their horn of plenty with struggling persons. Rest assured there is no shortage of customers.
