As I have said before money is really tight right now. It seems like with each month that passes it gets harder and harder to pay our bills. I have decided to try to cut our grocery bill even more by couponing. I did this in the past (maybe a year ago) and loved it. I saved a lot of money and loved the thrill of seeing how much I could cut off of my grocery bill. The only problem is that it got so time consuming that when life got crazier I decided to stop.
Here is a picture of my old coupon holder. Can you see why it was so time consuming?
I decided that I am going to start up again with couponing because we really do need to find new ways to save money. This time I am going to do it the right way. I have a binder that I bought in the past that I am going to use. I need some photo holder sheets and then I will be set. I will show you the finished product hopefully by next week. :)
Today I plan to go to the Newspaper office and pick up a copy of yesterday's paper. I forgot to get it yesterday and I really want the coupons. Then I will cut them out and begin the matching process.
Here is a link to a post I wrote about a year ago. It has some great couponing tips.
How do you organize your coupons?
