*Buy/get your coupons
*Cut & organize
*MATCH MATCH MATCH!!
1.) buy/ get your coupons: Where?
*Red Plum inserts – Redplum.com
*Smartsource inserts- Smartsource.com
*p&g inserts (once a month insert) – pgesaver.com (proctor and gamble)
-Major brand and store websites- ie. Pillsbury & Target have good coupons on their website you can print off
-Coupons.com (main coupon printing site- you can print from home)
2.) Cut out your coupons and organize them!
Methods of organizing?
*Binder- use a 3 ring binder with baseball card inserts and tab dividers for sections
*Box- Photo box with dividers for sections
*Coupon folder- Most don’t hold many coupons-
*I find it easier to keep certain store only coupons (ie Target coupons) in a category to themselves instead of combined with others- do whatever method is more beneficial to you
3.) MATCH THEM UP!!!
* Simplest way is to go to good websites you trust and they have matchups already done for you – They tell you what coupon to use at certain stores for the best deals! (don’t forget about your internet coupons- you may have some that these websites don’t list – which could get you a better deal than what they have listed!)
* Go through the stores ad and circle good deals you find – then go through your coupons and pull the coupons you will use combined with those deals for super prices!! (:
4.) GO SHOPPING !!! (the best part)
* have a main list you want to go buy and have those coupons set aside so they’re easy to find- BUTTTTT also have your other coupons with you- you never know what other unadvertised deals they don’t put in ads! (not to mention good clearance finds!!!)
***TAKE AN EMPTY ENVELOPE!!!!*** when you put an item in your cart that had a coupon- put that coupon in the envelope so when you get to the cashier you know exactly which to give to the cashier!
