YouTube Guru Spotlight: Glam Life Guru

The first time I watched an episode of 'Extreme Couponing', my features were frozen in an expression similar to this:


I have a lot more chest hair than Richard Simmons, but otherwise, this photograph is an accurate depiction of my appearance that day.  For those of you who opted out of Sarcasm 101, I am kidding about the man sweater.  Sort of.  (Seriously, I'm joking.  What kind of neanderthal do you think I am?!)

If you are unfamiliar with the premise of TLC's hit show, here is a brief overview:

'Extreme Couponing' features hardcore bargain hunters who save hundreds  - sometimes thousands - of dollars by utilizing coupons, sales, and reward programs.  Believe it or not, some of these savvy shoppers' transactions result in the store owing them money.  It's unbelievable!

Scoring massive deals requires an exorbitant amount of patience and time.  Sadly, some of the individuals on the show have developed an unhealthy obsession with couponing.  It consumes their lives.  My husband and I have incorporated coupons into our shopping, but on a smaller, more conservative scale.

Dumpster diving for coupons.  Crazy or crazy smart?

Tati, a.k.a. Glam Life Guru, is a not-so-extreme coupon extraordinaire.  You won't find her hauling eight carts of free spaghetti noodles out of the store, arms raised triumphantly in victory.  She and her boyfriend, Master, visit multiple drug stores weekly, sharing current beauty-related steals and deals.  I ROFLCOPTER while watching their videos.  They're a hoot!  (Yes, I said "hoot".  Big whoop.  Wanna fight about it?)

Gaw-juss and thrifty!

Couponing can be intimidating and confusing.  Tati breaks down specials perfectly for penny pinching rookies such as myself, and often provides links to printable coupons.  Her channel and blog are excellent resources that I have been referring to for months.  Although her subscriber count is steadily on the rise, she deserves more followers than she currently has.  Please check her out!

Have a great week, everyone!

Ebru - I'm so glad you already know about them! I watch all of their videos, even though there isn't a CVS nearby. LOL! I always "like" her videos before I watch them. They're always good, so why wait? :)
