Oh, happy day. The sneak peak of this week’s episode of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” includes a trip to the local Piggly Wiggly for some extreme couponing, an activity which June admits is “an addiction” and “better than sex.” I really need to try this couponing business, huh?
For now, I’ll have to live vicariously through Alana, June and the girls as they stock up the “buggy” with chocolate milk and mustard. Not surprisingly, June’s “quick math” skills are on point when it comes to saving money for her family. Alana’s math is not too shabby either. It might be better than mine. And Pumpkin? Well, she falls backwards out of the shopping cart. Of course she does. They should just cancel “Extreme Couponing” because no other couponers will be able to live up to the Boo Boos. More, please! We can hardly wait for Wednesday. [People]

in her house filled with rolls of toiler paper. But instead of shaming Amanda for what is essentially hoarding
the stuff we wipe our asses with, this show seems to be, well, celebrating her obsessive frugality. So cool, uh, indeed. [The Hairpin
