In the mid-1940s, Ann Cox Williams was the original extreme couponer. Through savvy shopping and adherence to a budget as tight as a corset, the Atlanta housewife saved money, penny by begrudgingly spent penny‚ÄĒand earned 15 minutes of fame in the process. For free.

Back then coupons didn't have expiration dates like they do now. It was easier back then.

Cool article.

It was much easier when coupons had no expiration dates, or dates a long ways away. Now, many expire within a month.

actually, I saw that on TV. They are still redeemable. A young woman got her grandma's coupons when she died and there were stacks of them without expiration dates. The stores honored them. She got a lot of free stuff that way.

As long as there is no expiration date, they can still sue it on the item.
