GMA features 12 year old couponer!

She started saving at age 9 and has saved over $4,000! I love Consumerist, but sometimes their commenters are just too mean... At least she's thinking, doing the math and at the grocery store instead of on Facebook all day! She isn't necessarily going to be a hoarder because she started couponing young. What do you guys think?

Even 12-Year-Olds Are Obsessed With Extreme Couponing - The Consumerist

I think she's making a smart decision! It's important to learn the concept of money at a young age. She will more than likely be successful in the future

I think she is a very smart young lady and will make a very wise wife one day. The man that marries her in the future is going to be very blessed to have such a considerate woman of the money.

she didn't come across as a hoarder to me. she seemed like a sweet level headed girl and even said she donates items too. What she bought was not over the top. I thought it was a well done story on

Geez, maybe this attitude is why so many people are in financial messes. A child has a money saving hobby and adults are mocking her for it. Really?!?!?!? Who is she hurting?

Did you read some of the comments about the story? What a bunch of haters. Implying that couponing a few hours a week is unhealthy. I wonder how many of their kids are stting in front of the TV/video games, etc. They are complaining that adding and subtracting for a 12 year old is not math skills for that age group (they need to see some of our posts on kids at fast food resaurants who can't make change unless the cash register tells them what to give). I lost my dad at 12 and my mom at 17, so I had to balance the family budget at an early age. You never know what live can throw at you and I think she is learning some great consumer skills!

I read some of the comments and they were horrible. She's 12 and spending her time saving money on stuff her family buys anyways. I think that's amazing. She could be doing drugs, having sex, playing video games or countless other not so great or horrible things and yet shes spending her time saving money and helping her family. Yea she's a horrible child -rolls eyes-, those people commenting on her like that makes me sick, I bet their kids r eating fast food and watching tv, playing video games and talking on the phone all day ...

I agree w/losingitagain... A lot of the comments were negative... Hey at least she's doing something productive, what are the commenters doing?! Putting down a child on an online forum-- what winners *sarcasm*

I saw this video earlier this week and all I can say is what an amazingly smart child! What morons those folks must be to pour negative comments on a child who is saving her family money?
