Our Interview with Extreme Couponer Nathan Engels

A few weeks back we were offered the opportunity to interview Nathan from WeUseCoupons/TLC's Extreme Couponing. We asked our readers to get involved by submitting questions for Nathan to answer - read our Q&A below:

1. Since you have such a huge stockpile, how often do you find yourself shopping?
I generally shop on Saturdays with my little one. We go to three different stores. If it’s a good sale, I may go out more during the week.

2. I don't have a store near me that doubles or triples coupons. Is it still worth it to buy multiple inserts and start extreme couponing? (I have HEB, Randalls, Super Walmart, and Super Target.) Absolutely! Many people are surprised when I say that the Drug Stores are some of the best places to get free health and beauty items!

3. What web sites do you use to purchase coupons?
When I purchase coupons (and am not Dumpster Diving), I use two, Whole Coupon Inserts and Coupon Dede.

4. How do you get so many coupons? I know there are sites that clip them and send them, but it seems like you have hundreds.
Check out this video LOL, I love doing this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CI5qLtZY8H0

5. What is the one tip that you give anyone who doesn't have time to clip coupons?
My first response to a statement like this is surprise. I work hard, I have a busy life, but I have time to save money. It takes time, but it’s worth it. If you truly don’t have time, go to Sam’s or a warehouse store. Watch for the unit price of an item and focus on that. Don’t always assume the value size is a value.

We would like to thank Nathan for taking the time to answer our questions.
