Coupon Orginization: Making it Work for YOU

There is no proven method when it comes to organizing your coupons. The only thing that IS proven is that you're more likely to USE them if they are ORGANIZED!

Organization can be the wall that stops a newbie couponer from couponing! It's overwhelming to find a new place for all this new "clutter"! I have a sister that is THE MOST organized person I know, but she was overwhelmed with the whole coupon organization thing, she finally bagged it and {gasp!} tossed all of her coupons she had been collecting.

Lucky for us - there is more than one way to do it. And if you're like me, you'll change methods a few times, trying to find what works for you.

Just starting out? Not quite sure you want to commit? You can go to the dollar store and purchase a small photo book to organize your coupons in. Investment - $1.00. This is what Monica did to start out. She'll tell you that it only lasted a few weeks before she moved on to something bigger.

As for me, there are three main methods of coupon organizing that I have tried. Each have their pros and cons... again, you just do what works for you! And it may take a little time to figure that out, and that is OK!!!

Here is my own coupon organization metamorphosis!

Bath & Body Works Sale & Coupon

Here is a $10 off $40 or more coupon to use at Bath & Body works (or use coupon code HELLOTEN if you're shopping online - be sure to shop through Ebates to receive an additional 3% cash back! (see my Ebates tutorial if you're new to this)).

You'll not only find select items on marked down up to 75%, you will find:

Signature Collection Classics Body Lotion $3.00

Anti-Bacterial Hand Soap $3 (limit 10)

Select Candles 14.5 oz $10 and 4oz candles for $5

These make great gifts for new mommies, sisters, and friends! I like to stock up for 6 months of gift giving!

The email I got said the sale ends on 12/30 - so hurry and get your goodies NOW!

Target Toy Clearance

This is one of my favorite times of year to shop at Target! Not only will you find all the seasonal Christmas goodies on clearance, you'll find a whole lot of other goodness!

Give yourself a good chunk of time to walk through the entire store. You'll find items on end caps through out the store that are marked down! If there is an abundance of a particular item, then I usually wait until it is marked down to 75% (and sometimes even 90%!) before I purchase it (of course you always risk that it will be gone if you wait... that is why I only do this if there is a large stock of product).

For the past three years, I've hit the clearance in the TOY department and stocked up on some super cheap toys to use as gifts through out the year. When the kids are invited to birthday parties, rather than going an paying $10-$20 for a gift, we simply go to my closet and my child picks something out that I paid less than $5 for! Shweet!

I haven't had time to go check out Target yet, but I'm sure the toys aren't marked down to 75% yet. They are probably anywhere from 30-50% off. According to Deal Beacon, toys are marked down on Wednesdays. I'm not sure if Christmas clearance follows this same schedule, but I'm going to check it out tomorrow.

And of course, getting some super cheap and super cute Christmas decor for next year is always fun! I also love to pick up cute and festive paper goods for next year. They work great for the neighbor goody plates!

Found something fab??? Leave a comment!!

    What Matters Most...

    We're sure you've noticed we haven't posted too much this week. It's because we're just like you - busy with final preparations for Christmas, and spending time with those we cherish most - our families!!!

    Just wanted to remind you that the current Alberstons ad is running through the 26th. You can see our post here if you want to read all about it. I'm pretty sure the doubles in Sunday's paper don't expire until the 24th (I've used mine, so I can't confirm).

    We just wanted to let you know we won't be around too much this week, but wanted to wish you a very Merry Christmas! Thanks for being our fabulous readers! We appreciate you so much!!
