How to start couponing.

I get asked all the time how do you get started. The first thing you have to do is decide that you really want to coupon and set aside at least one hour a week to clip and organize your coupons.

The next step is gathering your coupons, and after they are gathered, then you have to decide how you want to carry them and how you want them organized. My coupons are in a large zip up three ring binder in photo album pages. They are arranged according to the store I shop at the most which is Kroger on Interstate Blvd. in Southaven. I can walk thru the store in about 30 minutes looking for bargains and closeouts that aren't put on the closeout section. When I see an item, I flip to the section for that product and find my coupon.

I have seen people use envelopes, accordian files made for coupons, larger accordian files and files organized A-Z, and if that works for you, then go with that approach.

When I get my papers on Sunday (I buy 4) I sit down at night while I'm watching TV and cut them out or put them in a bag for swapping with other people. Then I organize them by food, personal items, cleaning, make up and medicine. Then I organize these divisions by produce, meat, bread, pastas and rices, canned goods (fruit, then veg) coffees and teas, frozen items, snack items and beverages, and dairy products. (I keep my coffee and tea separate from beverages because they are at the first of the store and my beverages are closer to the end.)

Then I put them in my book, I find the more I handle these coupons the more aware of what coupons I have so I don't have to wonder if I have a coupon or not, I just know I either have it or don't.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me.

Today's deal

I am always telling you to buy more than one Sunday paper, here is why.....today I was in Kroger and they had Malt-O-Meal dry cereal in 2 and 3 pound, yes I said pound, bags $1 each.  Three weeks in the Sunday paper there was a coupon for $2/2 of the Malt-O-Meal dry cereal.  I bought 4 papers that week so today I got 8 of the giant bags of cereal for FREE.  Even if you don't use the cereal, it's a good item to donate to your local food bank.

Coupon Tips

I have been telling you to check sundaycouponreview.com to see what coupons will be in the paper, and I have also told you that I usually buy at least two papers and depending on the coupons sometimes  4.  Well today at Kroger I was cruising down the personal items aisle and they were having a P & G campaign going on.  They had buy 4 items and get $4 off at the register.  I had three coupons for Aussie/Herbal Essences hair care B1G1 free and after the $4 at the register I paid $1.99 for the Aussie and $1.95 for the Herbal Essences, which made it a total of 97 cents per bottle of shampoo or hairspray, then I got 4 Old Spice deodorants on the same P & G sale for $1.29 each with $1/2 coupon which made them 65 cents each with a bonus of a coupon for B1G1 deodorant get a free Old Spice body wash which was valued at $3.50 and I had 3 coupons for that.  Sometimes you really have to shop around for these deals, but these just fell in my lap.  They also had Secret on the same sale, but were out of the kind I had a coupon on for 55 cents off plus a B1G1 free coupon that I have 4 of. 

Always check your Sunday Coupon Preview to determine how many papers you need.
