Gracious! Have you heard about the man who is living on coupons for a year? As part of a promotion for Groupon, a deal-of-the-day website, Chicagoan Josh Stevens, is living off coupons from the company for a year. If he completes the challenge, he’ll win $100,000. Nice.
According to CNN.com:
Under the Chicago-based company’s challenge launched in May, Stevens can’t use or even touch money, but he’s equipped with a laptop and online coupons that can be used for lodging, dining and shopping.
At first, I was shocked at the challenge, and then I was inspired. As a full-time Frugalista, I am always looking for the best deals. I regularly look for coupons when shopping online.
With proper practice, you can save hundreds per year by using coupons. Still, I don’t have as much time to look for coupons like I should. I mean, I work a lot.
What do you think? Could you live off coupons for a year? Does coupon clipping take up too much time? Are coupons sexy? Do you need to step up your coupon game?
