Looking for Ideas

One of the ladies at church has started giving me the coupons from her Sunday paper, as she was just tossing them out. It has taken shopping to a whole new level of excitement :)

Just yesterday I got refrigerated Pillsbury dough for .20 cents each. They were on sale and then I had a coupon and the store I bought them at doubles coupons up to $1.00. How cool is that?!

I have to figure out a way to organize my coupons and I am looking for suggestions! Please share ideas!! Thanks!

I'm a coupon clipper, too, but have yet to find a good way to do it. I have one of those little folders that has categories for your coupons, like "meats" and "dairy" and "sauces and spices," but it doesn't work that well for me. It's only good if I'm organized enough to sit down at home before I go to the store and pull out the coupons that go with what's on my list (because I don't buy things just because I have a coupon, UNLESS it's an extraordinary coupon, or is for something I've been curious about). I'm rarely that organized, though, and usually end up looking frazzled and disheveled in the store because I'm trying to flip through my coupons and they're falling all over the place and I'm ready to get out of there already.

Needless to say, I'll be checking back to see what suggestions you get. =)

I use a small index card box. I label the dividers in order of how I shop through Walmart. Within the dividers, I arrange them by expiration date, with the ones expiring first in the front.

I've used the system a couple years and I love it.

Donna had a good idea. I use the categorized folder like Jessica does, but then I usually forget it at home and don't get around to using them until they are all expired. I'm not very good at coupon-ing :(

I'm bad at coupons too. But I have a little photo album in my purse with some baby pictures in it, and there were a few empty pages at the back, so I threw my coupons in there, that way I could see what they were for.

Ooh! I'm loving the photo album idea!
