My Journey Through Couponing – part 1
Up until recently, I never used coupons. I’ve tried but it always seemed so confusing to try to match up my coupons to the sales fliers from the different grocery stores. We only have one grocery store within a 20 mile stretch so it isn’t easy to get to all the grocery stores each week to get the best deals.
Still, I have been reading Crystal’s e-book, Secrets to Supermarket Savings. I have read this book over an over again trying to get prepared for living in a bigger city (we move this summer). I decided to make my coupon box using some of Crystal’s suggestions, and then I tailored it to suit my family and our needs. I also am trying hard to use what we have instead of going out and purchasing a pre-made coupon box, folder, etc… Once I know exactly what I need for my system I will feel better about making the purchase of a plastic container, but until then, a small cardboard box will do me just fine.
So, here was my project for today.
Make a coupon center out of envelopes and address labels.
Then I printed out labels for each envelope and stuck them to the tabs.
I made the categories pretty specific and there are 27 of them.
Later, I will be organizing the coupons I print off from various sites on the computer. I will list a couple of my favorite coupon hot-spots, too.
