Getting Started With Couponing

April 11, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 98

First subscribe to your local newspaper. When you subscribe make sure you get the Sunday and Wednesday newspaper.

Sunday Newspaper has the coupons.

Wednesday Newspaper has the grocery store ad. These ads will help you save even more money. How?? Price matching.

What is price matching? A store matching a price with a competitor store so you can get the item for less.

In the meantime, while waiting on your subscription prepare yourself for organizing.

Second, Get organized and stay organized. Organizing while couponing is very important. When you are not organized with anything in your life, you see how things turn out. You get frustrated.

So get a coupon binder, coupon organizer, or coupon folder, or coupon box.

Really, yes. There is more than one way to organize your coupons.

Coupon binder - The binder can hold your coupons, pens to scratch out the items on your shopping list as you pick them up. Scissors to clip coupons when you find last minute deals. Get plastic sheet protectors or baseball card protectors. Use tabs to separate your categories or if you don't have tabs then make your own using sticky notes; just cut and fold them in half and put tape over the sticky note and tape it to the sheet protector.

Coupon Organizer - A small envelope thing that is so convenient that it can fit into your purse. You can probably find these at a $1.00 store.

Coupon Folder - (Accordion) - Bigger than the organizer and holds more. The folder holds all the papers in place. To me this is better than the coupon binder because you don't have to worry about papers and coupons falling out.

I got so tired of being in the store with my binder and coupons falling out into the buggy or the floor.

Now there is a solution to this: Use paper clips at the top of the sheet protector or baseball card protectors.

The downside to this is that every time you get ready to use a coupon or take a coupon out, you have to be bothered with taking the paper clips off.

Too much of a hassle to deal with.

Envelope Method - Write store categories on envelope. Separate coupons according to categories. I actually tried this method and I was in and out the store in 1 hour. This is my favorite method. I would have been in the store for hours if I had not used this method.

Coupon Box - This is for the couponers that want to stay organized and doesn't want to haul anything into the store with them but their coupons. If you use this method you still need a way to hold your coupons while in the store. I would suggest the envelope method. Quick and fast.

What works for one may not work for another person. You may have to try all methods before you find one that is workable for you.
