No doubt the most spectacular piece of television-as-art in the last century was the episode of Extreme Couponing that featured Honey Boo Boo Child from TLC's hit show, Toddlers and Tiaras. In that episode we learn as normal people that extreme couponing is hard work--but good work if you can get it. And soon enough, we can all learn how to be a savvy shopper and save money (just like Alana's mom) with the paperback original Extreme Couponing. That's correct, Extreme Couponing the book, which retails for $15, is coming out on March 5.
