Good morning ladies, I hope you all had a nice long weekend!
It seems like we've got a great mix of people who really know how to work this couponing thing, along with many who want to learn. I thought it would be fun for everyone to share their advice for newbies. No advanced stuff yet, just the basic steps that those new to couponing should try.
Here are my tips~
1. Set up an organizational system. It may be an envelope with like coupons paper clipped together; multiple envelopes; an accordian style file like this one (I saw them at the Dollar Tree for, well, a dollar) ; or a binder with baseball card holders in it. This will allow you to be organized when you hit the supermarket.
2. Clip all of the coupons from the Sunday paper, then match them up with sales at your grocery store. Stock up on things when your store has them on sale and you can use your coupon - double savings!
