Kmberly Gager's garage is filled with so many boxes and miscellaneous products for Hurricane Harvey victims she can't park there any more.

Laundry detergent, soap, diapers, baby wipes, formula — you name it, the San Antonio woman has bought it. She never misses out on a sale.

The woman, who has been "extreme couponing" for about five years, says she's now using her unique skills to help those in need.

Give up is not hoarding.... she did hoard, now she using what she hoarded for people in need.  Here, we call that stocking up.  LOL

It's great what she is doing.  Next is transportation, someone might help her transporting those goods to where it is needed.

  Call it what you want but when done correctly you can stock up on plenty.
One year $30,000+ of product cost me $3300 (excluding sales tax) at Walgreen's alone. Almost $61,000 for the year with computer/printers/groceries/clothing/HBA products and my OOP was $10,719.

  Mustard I'm not sure.

But Body Wash?  A LOT!  Those people must smell real bad by now.

isn't this what most of us used to do with FAR paper from Staples, om/OD?

i have wondered if a person could build an igloo to live in on case paper.

She doesn't have to wait for the next hurricane to put her coupon finds to good use.

There are food pantries and homeless shelters who would be delighted with what she's found--and she could clear out what she doesn't need every few months.
