  • Wow, am I ever not.... I clip coupons, and forget to take them with me, or lose them for years... not nearly organized enough to take advantage, but then I don't buy most of what is so overpriced manufacturers will lure people with coupons anyhow...

    They have helped me tremendously with coupons, making household cleaners, etc. The first thing that I would do is find a way to organize your coupons that you find is best for your situation. I prefer to have a notebook with baseball card inserts. I then label the inserts (produce, frozen, health and beauty, etc). I sort my coupons and put them in a baseball card slot of the appropriate category. I also have a folder in the notebook that I keep ads and circulars for the week as well as coupons that I have no need for or that have expired so that I can send them to army posts overseas (they can use expired coupons 6 months after the expiration).

  • Cont... I only use coupons when the item is on sale. For example, I went to Kroger tonight and they had a special on Kellogg's cereal buy 4 for $10. Also, when you buy 4 participating Kellogg's products you were eligible to receive 2 gallons of free milk. I also had a coupon for Kellogg's cereal $2 off 2 boxes. So, for $8, I have 4 boxes of cereal and 2 gallons of milk. Original price- $19, so that is a savings of $11. There was also a sale on Pillsbury biscuits for $1 each. I had a coupon for 75 cents off three, so my total savings with the sale plus coupons was $2.70. Anyways, I tend to find the best deals and sales on http://www.southernsavers.com/ and http://www.thethriftymama.com/ .
