Coupon Organization - Making it work, FOR YOU!

This is something I've been wanting to do for, gee, like nearly a YEAR now! One of my resolutions is to get all the ideas floating in my noggin out there for you all to read! So I started this organization post, intending for it to be one short and sweet post... but, you know me, at times I tend to be long winded when talking about something fun. SO - I'm breaking it up into a series of posts!

I want to start off today by sharing this FABULESS tool created by one of our newest blogging buddys, Angela, over at The Coupon Project. She is a self proclaimed organizing nerd freak junkie couponer, and has come up with a super fab excel spreadsheet that you can use to track all of your coupon savings!! So the next time someone complains to you about "what a waste of time", you can whip out your handy dandy 2010 Savings Tracker spreadsheet!

Angela is so kind to share this creation with all - you can go view more details about it, plus get the FREE download at her site, The Coupon Project!

Coming SOON - You'll see the first of THREE different methods of organization I've tried, and later in the week we'll show you Monica's super fab and fast way of clipping coupons!

{PART 2} - Filing Method
{PART 3} - Binder/Baseball Card Holder Method

Thanks so much for sharing. I actually just responded to a reader on my site (www.ConfessionsofaCouponaholic.com) about organization, and I would love to hold a great forum on this issue...

I look forward to seeing your methods:) I will mail you my links when I share mine.

Thanks for running such a great site!

I must say I love this lady! I found her blog like 3 weeks ago and started using this spreadsheet and I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! I was just telling my hubby, I hate when people ask "how much are you saving?" and all I can come up with is "I hope a lot!" Now I know exactly where I am at and it is so nice!
