I enjoy watching the Ec show. It is the same as the other reality shows, would you actually expect to throw your kid a $200,000 birthday party and tell your husband that you are only spending a few thousand?
For those that do coupon as a way of life, you will continue too long past EC's series finale. The guidelines and tightening will loosen back up.
I enjoy watching the show, its funny when we see someone use a coupon and we laugh and say, oh yeah, we used our 10! Then they proceed to get 200 of them.
