Why Extreme Couponing Doesn't Work for Everyone

It's not that I haven't tried. And it's not that it's not possible. It's because I am too lazy and I'm too brand-conscious.

I follow this page on Facebook called Extreme Couponing and Deals UK. They practically spoon-feed me. I don't have to do any of the work to find the deals. But as today's example showed, sometimes, I'm just unwilling.

This Flash Liquid Gel is on sale in Sainsbury's right now for 50p. There is currently a coupon on supersavvyme that gives you 50p off of this same item. So essentially, I could walk into Sainsbury's today and get this item for free. A true extreme couponer would print a BUNCH of this coupons out and buy a ridiculous amount to store for the rest of eternity. But nahhh. Why would I go into Sainsbury's when I can get my groceries delivered? I don't have a car, so I have a good excuse, right? And why would print out coupons and waste ink on an item I've never tried before? I am happy with Fairy so I find no need to switch to Flash. 

My theory: these product companies are actually pleased with extreme couponing. It messes with people's heads. People buy ridiculous bulk amounts before they are even set on a brand. Hence, mass marketing at its finest.

I am up for being persuaded otherwise.
Please challenge me. Prove me wrong. Teach me.
I'm all ears.
