Extreme Couponing Top 5 Marked Up Items

 Top 5 Marked Up Items:


1. Bulk Products.


Many of us shop at wholesale stores like Costco . You can save a lot of money by purchasing items in bulk, and grocery stores are starting to  paying attention. Most grocery stores now offer "bulk " aisles. Bulk automatically means cheap, right? Not always! Check your coupons, you can usually save more by using them against smaller products.Do your math!
2. Bottled Water.

People are still buying bottled water, either because they think it is safer than tap or they can take it on the go, even for emergency prepardness. There is actually a 4000% markup on this! Crazy! I still buy it for emergencies and store it in the garage but just make sure you clip a coupon and do not pay full price!

3. Over The Counter Meds.

Brand names are 30 to 40 % more expensive than generic brands. Why is this? Brand names spend money on advertising,and packaging. Pretty simple. That is usually the only difference. Just make sure that you compare labels or ask a pharmesist to be sure.


4. Organics.

Organic produce will cost you. If buying organic is a priority for you, you can still avoid the markup. Buy your organic produce at the farmers market. It's cheaper, and you'll support local business. 


5. Cereal.

Cereal is a super conveniant breakfast item. Children love it and it's easy to prepare. The markup is a result of advertising and marketing costs. You can usually buy in bulk , Save On Foods usually offer a buy 3 get X amount of bonus points and if you shop wisely the cerial that you buy may have coupons inside the box that you can use on your next shopping trip!

Join Me & Lose Weight


Hi, my name is Faith. So I’m really quite a private person but since starting this site I have met SO many wonderful people and I figured I should probably tell you all a bit about me. I’m a 39 year old stay at home Mother of a beautiful Daughter and 3 cats (yes I said 3..I know, I know! ) I had the idea to start this site after talking with others that were on the same journey as me. We needed a "one stop" weight loss site with tips that work! My Weight has always fluctuated by about 15 pounds nothing super crazy. I only gained 34 pounds with my pregnancy and thought it was going to be easy sailing....NOT so much! Check out my story...
