~~Do You Use Coupons?~~

If you are not using coupons you should definitely start!!!! It really makes a difference when you are trying to stay on a budget!! I’ve always used coupons. Most of the time I would forget them at home. But when I learned how to match up my coupons with the weekly sales ads it made such a BIG difference. Trust me I don’t forget them anymore. Coupons have got a bad rap lately because of the TLC Extreme Couponing show but believe me you don’t have to be that extreme to save your family money. I never pay full price for lotion, deodorant, shampoo, make up, laundry detergent, and many other health and beauty items.

The best places to to buy laundry items and health and beauty items is CVS, Walgreens, and Rite Aid. They all provide store coupons that you can use along with your manufacture’s coupons and that’s when you can really save! They also all have reward programs that you join that you can use as cash for purchasing anything in the store. I’ve also learned that organizing your coupons make a world of difference. I use a binder and put the coupons in baseball card sleeves. So, every week I take my sales papers and match them up with the things I need. I’ll check and see if I have a coupon and then I put them with my sales adds. You don’t have to take the binder in the store, just use it to store and organize your coupons.

This is my binder…….


I keep my sales ads organized in the divider pockets.


Here’s a look inside.



Remember coupon are just like cash money.


This is the best sources for coupons…..

All You magazine available only at Walmart.

I also have several websites that I print coupons from.  If you are interested in any of them please email me and I’ll be happy to email you the web addresses. I hope some of this coupon info helps you. If you have any questions please let me know.

Until next time, take care!!!! Smile
