Anyway, couponing saves me over $15 on a good trip. While I'm at the store, I pass around the good coupons to one person, usually my hubby. The grocery list is handed off to another one, usually my teenage daughter. Then, I put away those coupons I won't be using in my purse. My method is so frustrating. I literally start to sweat.
Many times I have cut coupons ahead of time. Fortunately, I have a blue organizer with dividers for the categories; however, I think its usefulness is nil, when I am at the grocery store. There are times that I have had to throw away those coupons that expire. It's embarrassing when the cashier hands you back an expired one. Sometimes I also run out of time to create a good grocery list to match up useful coupons; my efforts at cutting them ahead of time is wasted.
That's why I started looking at some of the couponing websites. I wanted to go into the forums to see how those that are coupon-savvy do their thing. Here are some fact that I have discovered:
2. Some of them use binders to organize their coupons. They insert those see-through baseball card holder pages and place the individual coupons in each slot. They actually take these binders with them to the grocery store.
3. Some of them trade coupons within couponing websites. This is an awesome idea.
4. Some of them combine coupons. I still am not ready for this, especially at the drug stores.
5. Some of them love to share their adventures daily, with pictures and mathematical explanations. You can sign up with newsletters.
6. Some of them love to share coupons sites, advice, and their philosophy about couponing. That's great for us novices.
I hope you, my readers, find this blog entry useful.
Peace out, my beloveds.
