It depends on how big of a trip I am doing... I usually prepare the day of my trip or the night before...but of course all my stuff is super organized... when it comes to couponing Im way past OCD lol

I prepair on Sundays . I cut and set aside all the coupons I need for that week. I only go to the store/stores twice a week once on Sunday night and once on Wednesday. I guess I have it down because I see people on that crazy TV show clam they spend five hours or more in a store and spends hours a week I just don't understand that. I can fill two carts on light weeks and three on good weeks and be in and out in an hour or less.

It depends on how big the trip is. If it's a short trip, I usually pack the night before. If it's a longer trip, usually three to four days.

I usually prepare the day/night before. If it's an unusually long trip or with lots of ECB'S using to pay and stuff then I'll spend a couple days on and off.

I spend an hour sorting, clipping and putting away coupons each week. It takes me 45 or so to go through ads and make my list. I never spend more then an hour in a store. Occasionally ill go to more then one store or more then once a week but mostly I just do Kroger on Thursday.

I haven't done the drug stores in quite a while and that's really taken time off my week.
