Any recomendations for organizing
Hi Goofy, check out this thread:http://www.consumerqueen.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=82&t=10391&p=32385&hilit=getting+organized#p32385
Also, I probably would start out with one binder for now and file your coupons by category (i.e. pantry, frozen, paper, bath products, hair care, etc.). Then when you start compiling more coupons, you can go to two binders and separate into food and health/beauty/household or whatever works best for you. You can still keep one HUGE binder if you want to but I've found it easier with two.
Also, start buying a paper every week AND get your mom's coupons too if she's not using them. This way you have two of each to take advantage of the FREE and really cheap stuff. Also check out the printable coupons forum...there are alot of good coupons there that you can print. Also, you can access sites like Smart Source through this site and print lots of different coupons.
Keep an eye on the coupon forum and when we post a preview of this week's coupons, check it out. If there are really good coupons or lots of brands you like, then buy two or three papers so you have multiples of those coupons.
Start perusing the sales flyers for stores near you and keep an eye on our forums (CVS, Walgreens, Homeland) for whoppin' good deals and then plan your shopping that way. Round if off with a trip to Crest or Walmart and you'll save tons!!
AND don't be brand loyal (some things I'm brand loyal on like my husband's coffee creamer and yogurt to name a couple, but for the most part I buy whatever I can get for free or next to nothing). Save ALL your coupons. This is how you save BIG!!
Hope this helps you get started!!
