Adventures in Couponing: Part II

Today, I went to Office Max to buy the rest of the supplies that I need in order to finish organizing my coupons. I bought a 2 inch 3 ring binder, Tabbed page dividers, and some plastic sleeves.

One of these handy dandy fellows is great to have as well.
I also purchased baseball card sleeves off of Ebay.

I have my coupons divided up into the following categories:
Bakery, Baking Ingredients, Beauty, Beverages, Breads, Canned Goods, Cleaners, Cereals, Condiments, Dairy, Deli, Dry Goods, Frozen Foods, Health, Household Items, Meat, Paper Goods, Personal Care Items, Produce, Snacks, Spices/Flavors, Baby Items, and Pet Products

I then put my coupons into the sleeves in their appropriate category.

Tomorrow I win buy 2 Sunday papers for additional coupons. I then go through the sales fliers and pull out the coupons that match. Again the key is to ONLY buy items that are both in the sales flier AND you you have a coupon for.

Last week when I bought my groceries at Kroger...I bought $120 worth of groceries and only spent $60. If I remember, I will take a picture of my loot this week :-)

  1. I haven't even used any of them yet! I have to get it straight in my head all the ins and outs of Kroger and CVS etc. But my binder is almost finished.

  3. Hi there! I just became a follower of your blog! I just created a coupon binder myself a couple weeks ago and it was so fun! That sounds funny but it was! I look forward to reading your posts!

  4. I use a zipper binder because it has flat folders in the front cover that I can keep each store's flier, cards, and store-specific coupons in. I also use CD plastic pages because they have flaps to keep coupons from falling out. Thanks for sharing your system!
