Large Marge Update 3
Here’s what I’ve accomplished.
I organized my coupons…finally! I just began couponing in January. I had tried a couple different organization methods and none of them were working for me. For the last few months I was burnt out from couponing, so I took a little break. Unfortunately during that break the coupon mess got worse.
I took all of the coupon inserts and put them into file folders by month. Then within each month I put post-its with the week on them. When I’m putting together my shopping list and I see that a particular coupon is in a particular insert…I’ll just go into my file, pull out the right insert, and clip the coupon! Unfortunately I couldn’t get all of my coupons to fit in the folder. The bag has all of my other coupons that aren’t inserts such as internet coupons, direct mailers, coupon booklets, All You magazine, sales ads, etc. This method is temporary since I found that the folder that I have just isn’t big enough for everything. I think I’m going to get a file-n-go for my inserts and a photo box with separators for all of the loose coupons and internet coupons.
I’m hoping to get a post up about my couponing method and some of the things I’ve learned while couponing. After all, September is National Coupon Month! Either way I’m so glad that I can cross number 13 off of my list!
You can see what else I’ve accomplished here and here.
