As 2010 comes to a close, I am wondering what your favorite deal you scored in 2010 was.  Mine was my tonka dump truck that seats two kids and goes 5 MPH.  $90 for a regularly priced $349 power wheels, and it works great!

I had to laugh after watching TLC’s Extreme Couponing because it really didn’t mention that the deal is more important than the coupon.  Sometimes, you can get amazing deals without coupons!  I hope that people realize you can be a cuckoo coupon lady without spending 70 hours a week couponing.

Also, I hope people who watched the show understood what a big help people are who donate their coupon stashes to local charities are.

If you are new to “extreme couponing”, make sure to read my coupon training guide to learn how to save time and money couponing.  Don’t forget about my extremely popular video on organizing coupons.

Ask CCD Readers: What did you think of TLC’s take on couponing? Also, what were your favorite cuckoo deals you scored in 2010?

    I liked it, it made me remember some things I had learned earlier on but have forgotten.. One of my fav deals was over Christmas and getting the Dora mega blocks and the Monopoly game for cheap, oh and the .44 cent pictureka game!

    I DVR’d it and just watched it tonight! The first lady was a bit crazy but my first thought was when I saw that she was from my city is “i hope she doesn’t shop at the same stores i do!”…. luckily, the footage showed she shops at a different kroger than I do. Whew!

    I loved getting an Ipod Touch 32GB with 4 cases for only $199!! It was really with coupons more with swagbucks but hey, it was $100 saved!

    My favorite deal was free cheese at Albertson’s with the kraft $5/5 coupon. :)

    I just found your website so I don’t have a favorite deal from here, but I love doing Swagbucks and getting the gift cards. A new follower though who will be watching your site:)

    I think I found the Radio Flyer car from Meijers from your blog. Saved a lot. I really enjoy your blog because I stay motivated to get a good bargain and search for it… I just have to remember my priority and not to impulse buy.
    Thanks & I hope to learn more this new year!

    I got a lot of good deals in 2010! I got a lot of good freebies at CVS, especially during their back to school deals. My best deals are using a high value coupon for a product with a really good sale. I got many items free this way. For example, Chex cereal on sale for $1.88 and used a $2 coupon….Colgate toothpaste on sale for $1.89 and used a $2 coupon….Target had several items on clearance that were free after using coupons too.

    I think that the show will make the Utah stores even more crazy! haha No, I love the info from all the sources, and I loved stocking up on my year supply for my family!
