WFMW: organzing coupons by store & sale

Coupon clipping, sale watching, cherry picking deals.... it can all become very time consuming, and very confusing.

Here's the super-easy way I organize my list by store and by coupon when I'll have a few smaller stops to make during the week. I use one envelope, often a recycled junk mail envelope, per store. I list the item, sale price, and coupons I have. Then I tuck those coupons into the envelope, and I'm ready to go. The envelopes go into my purse until I have a chance to stop at the store-- which could be on an at-home day, or, on my lunch break from my part-time job. Sometimes I also carry my coupon file for last-minute deals, and sometimes I just stick with the list-- it depends on how much time/ money I have!

To see what I got with this {messy} list.... and learn how CVS paid me $4.77 to take these things home.... check out my previous post.

  1. Great idea...I just used the envelope method to have Walgreens pay me $1 to take home over $10 worth of stuff! Great tip!

    Thanks for the visit!!

  2. That IS a great idea! I need to work more on saving. I cut coupons but I don't scour for savings. Dumb. (me, not the idea, lol)

  3. Thanks for visiting my blog! Great tip!!
