I love the competition of Extreme Couponing All-Stars on TLC. The couponers compete for the largest percentage saved and the largest amount of goods with all the goods going to local charities. Tonight was the finale and it was in Las Vegas. As soon as I saw the location I told my husband it would be great if TST got some of the goods that are donated at the end. After a very exciting competition in which all previous records were smashed the top 2 couponers came away with over $10,000 in goods covered 100% by their coupons. When they leave the store to make the donation sure enough the announcer says it is going to "The Shade Tree Shelter" and I started freaking out and then next thing I know I see Marlene there, and she tells them that this is the largest donation of goods from a single source they've ever received. I was so thrilled to see Marlene and TST benefit from this show that has been a fun one to watch over the past few weeks as they determined which couponers made it to the finale. Way to go Marlene!!

WOW, What fantastic work! Posted ImagePosted Image

Susan, I read your post and didn't realise what TST stood for. Then my eyes travelled to your GALS NAME - 'Tet-signed & Tattooed' etc... and I was thinking 'That's the name of the charity???????' DOH!Posted Image Posted Image
