How to Organize Coupons

So, I am fairly new to all this couponing, so all of you that are reading this will learn with me or else be able to help me with some great suggestions if you would be so kind to share them.

I started by cutting all the coupons out, putting them on a spreadsheet and bringing them all with me.  That was a little overwhelming because there were so many loose coupons. 

Then I decided to not cut them out, leave them in the inserts and only bring the coupons I thought I would use.  This was rather nice, but then I would get to the store and forgot that I needed something that I had a coupon for or else there would be an unadvertised sale that I had a coupon for and it would leave me frustrated.  I don't get to the store everyday, which is a good thing.  With three small children, I am lucky to get one hour of shopping every week, if I can sneak it in, so it is important for me to try to be organized.

So, now I think I will try leaving the coupons in the Sunday inserts, printing and cutting the on-line coupons, putting the inserts in a binder by date and filing the loose coupons alphabetically and printing a list of all the coupons I have and take them all to the store with me along with a pair of scissors.  I will cut out the ones that I know I will definitely need and if I find a good sale while I am there I will have the other coupons if I need them.  

I will try this for a bit and let you know how it all works out.

 I really wish there was some type of electronic device that you could pick out the coupons you thought you could use and download them and then when you go to check out you could hand it to the clerk and they could scan it and it would take off the coupon and delete it from your system.  The system would also delete the expired coupons so you wouldn't have to sort through them and throw them away and there would be no need to cut coupons out and it could be use at any store that took coupons.  With the coupons being on the system you could search your coupon database and see what coupons you had so that way you know if you should pick up the item or not.  It could be small, so you don't have to lug around a huge binder full of coupons. 

Does that sound nice?  Now if only I was smart enough to actually invent that.  HA HA : )

Going to start cash only budget

Ok, so I have been pondering this for awhile and starting now I am going to deal only with cash for groceries and household items.

I have a budget, but every month I seem to go above the budgeted amount.  If I only carry so much in cash for those items, I will be able to actually see how much I have spent.

It is so easy to just throw items in your cart and not actually keep track of how much you are spending until you get to the cashier.  Since I will be paying with cash, I will have to actually keep track of what I am spending so I don't go over.  I have to make sure to bring a calculator with me! : )

I am excited and nervous to start this.  It will be like when I started counting my calories (which I need to start doing again) and realized how much I was actually eating.  I think I will be getting a real eye opener this month and it will be fun to grocery shop and get the deals!

I will keep you posted on how this goes for our family!

Maybe you would like to try this with your family, or maybe you already do.  If so leave some tips for me or if you are starting post your comments on how it is going for you.

Arm and Hammer - Free Sample

I love Arm & Hammer toothpaste so I am excited about this sample.   If you go here you can request your free sample of Advance White Brilliant Sparkle Toothpaste!!!!

Ladies Home Journal - $2.99

Wow another good deal on a magazine.  Right now Tanga is offering Ladies Home Journal for $2.99 a year.  You can get up to 3 years at this price.   Not bad at all.  

Start thinking ahead for Christmas - this may be a nice gift to give to someone.

I don't know about you, but I like to switch my shampoos and conditioners brands on and off.  It always seems my hair gets too used to the shampoo if I keep using it.  So, when I keep switching it seems my hair does better.  OK, maybe I am the only one that feels that way - oh well.

Any way, if you go here you can get a free sample of your choice of either the NOURISH+ MOISTURIZE, NOURISH+ VOLUMIZE, NOURISH+ REVITALIZE or NOURISH+ SHINE and get a free shampoo and conditioner sample and coupon sent straight to your door or choose a downloadable coupon that you can use in-store today.

New Carmex

I received an e-mail advertising Carmex's new Healing Lotion and Healing Cream.  Seeing that I have really dry skin, I am looking forward to trying these out.

The e-mail stated:

Both have a light, pleasant scent and moisturize without a feeling greasy. Our Carmex® Healing Lotion is designed for everyday use, while our more concentrated Carmex® Healing Cream contains nine essential healing ingredients to target and help repair your roughest, driest skin.

These are currently only available at Walgreens.  I hope to find a good coupon to be able to try them out and let you know what I think.

Garden Goodness

What better way to save a little extra money, than to have your own garden for fresh produce.  I just started to garden, this is my second year at it.   We have corn, tomatoes, green beans, and cucumbers in our garden this year.

Yesterday we froze the sweet corn and the green beans.  It is a little work, but will be so worth it when you can have yummy sweet corn and green beans in the middle of winter.   We made pickles with some of the cucumbers and when the tomatoes become ripe we will can them and make spaghetti sauce, salsa, diced tomatoes, and tomato juice.  I don't like eating ripe tomatoes, but I do like them if they have been cooked.  Goulash and Spaghetti taste so much better with garden tomatoes!  

Maybe next year we will expand our garden, so we can have more produce.  I think I would like to grow Zucchini.

Gardening is a great way to save money and eat healthy.

Do you have a garden?  If so, what do you grow?
