A USA Today article titled, "Crazy For Coupons, Man Stockpiles Goods", dated August 18, 2011, states that when Nathan Engels, of Villa Hills, KY, USA, hits the stores it's shopping, on steroids: 30 packs, of baby diapers, 50 bottles, of body wash, 20 tubes, of toothpaste, etc. Engels is an "extreme couponer", a growing segment, of frugal-minded shoppers, who use reams, of coupons, to buy, hundreds, of dollars, of groceries, at a time, for a fraction, of the cost... "If it took you five minutes, to save, $100.00, why wouldn't you?" Engels asked.

The USA Today article goes on, to quote Phil Lempert, a food industry analyst and editor, of a website, stating that the TV show, "Extreme Couponing", distorts true coupon use, which usually save shoppers 15%, to 20%, of their bill---not 80%, to 90%. However, executive producer Matt Sharp, of the show, "Extreme Couponing", told USA Today that the show has struck a chord, with viewers, who, in tough economic times, are looking, for new ways, to save.

A Baby Talk, August 2006 issue, talks about how a new baby means you need more moolah---but how do you get it? The one constant? The fiscal power, of a pair, of scissors. In the issue, a reader says, to always, clip coupons. A Baby Talk article written, by Lisa Lewis, titled, "Super (market) Savings", states that the newspaper is a great place, to find, manufacturer's coupons...Be sure, to look, for the best deals and go with a shopping list and don't veer from it. If it's not on your list, don't put it in your cart.

Other readers of Baby Talk suggest to sign up for department store credit cards so you can receive their special coupons---but don't actually use the cards.

A Baby Talk article written by Jill Hamburg Coplan titled "Baby Food Bargains" teaches to become a "Growing Up Gerber" member to receive coupons and offers totaling $50.00 for various products and to sign-up for a bi-monthly Beech-Nut e-newsletter to keep you abreast of money-saving deals on their baby food, including coupons you can print out. You can also call the company to receive additional coupons by snail mail.

Finally, in "5 Ways To Save $ On...Baby Food", in issue June/July 2001 of Baby Talk, it is hilarioualy stated to substitute comparable adult foods. The only difference between baby food and regular applesauce is that the adult version is half the price! Got a coupon for applesauce?
