For almost two years, I have shared how our family saves money while feeding our family. Often, I explain how and when I use coupons, but I have not posted a coupon series. My decision thus far has been because so many other blogs do a great job posting only coupon usage and deals.
In subscribing to those websites, my Google Reader gets so many posts that requires lots of time to weed through the deals to find the informative posts. Realizing that in using time wisely, I can fill this gap.
With mostly one post a day, I’m not going to overwhelm you with deals. I will stick to the facts and share how I have found using coupons a big benefit for our budget.
In our study of coupons, thus coupon-ology, I will start a 5-part coupon series next Thursday with the following topics:
Part 1: Purge coupons
Part 2: Organize coupons
Part 3: Gather coupons
Part 4: Matching coupons
Part 5: Redeeming coupons
During this study, I will guide you from start to finish in creating an organizational system that works for you. My system has evolved from pouches to binders over the years. You do not need a filing cabinet, a 5-inch binder, or multiple copies of the Sunday paper. Even if you have few coupons, you can still save as your best discounts come with buy one, get one free and deep sale prices.
Weekly Project: Put all your coupons in one spot.
In using time wisely, I plan to give you multiple solutions and options as one-coupon-system does not fit all. Similar to menu planning, it may take some time to find what works for you. Join me as we take this coupon adventure together. Happy couponing!
