    Default HI ALL!

    Hi you need to buy yourself a binder then get some of the plastic inserts that basball cards come in you can buy them at walmart in the stationary area. It is a wonderful way to keep up with your coupons. And make sure to keep it in the car so you have it. I dont no where you are from but I live in arkansas. there are alot of stores here that double coupons so I get alot of stuff for free. Tooth paste deodorant, soap, food, all kinds of stuff. Even if I dont use it or need it if it is free I get it. Someone can use it. Also join coupon trains. Also someone on here said to checkout hillbillyhousewife.com I did and its great. Can save you alot of money.Hope this helps,Heather

    Default HI ALL!


    Do you keep your coupons in an accordion style holder? That's what I use to keep mine in and always forgot to give them @ the check out. Then, when I became a serious couponer I bought a coupon binder (from a local couponing expert - IMO) that was all set up w/ pre-printed tabs, baseball card sheets, etc. and now because it's so big and I have to close it when I get to the check out, to get it out of the cashiers way, I have NEVER forgotten to give them my coupons. I've used this binder system for a year now.

    Also, if you take your receipt and coupons to the customer service desk they will normally give you your money for the coupons.

    HTH,

    Default Hi all!

    I'm Jen, new from NJ. I'm a single mom and work full time along with coahc t-ball, cheerleading and lead a brownie troop. I am also in training for the 3 day breast cancer walk in PA in Oct.

    I'm looking for the best ways to budget. I've always had a budget but could always use new ideas. I have 5 debts not including my car and my mortgage. I have a plan which I"m actually starting this month which will get me a small emergency fund, out of credit card debt (in 2 years), car paid off (in 3 years) and mortage gone, all within a total of 12 years. Sounds like alot but considering I just turned 30, this is a big goal for me. Looking forward to getting to know everyone!
    Jen

    Hi ! Nice to see some new faces in the forums, it sounds like you have alot going on. If you need fun ideas for crafts for your brownie troop, you can look in the craft of the week projects. I did the soda bath fizz with the boys in cub scouts and they had a great time. It's awesome that you have a plan! You should create a blog and chart your progress.
    Everyone here is pretty friendly, so if you need anything, jump right in and ask.

    Welcome, glad you're joining in, lots of great budget ideas and ways to save money. I used to use coupons casually until about 3 or 4 months ago. Started with the expanding file and have now graduated to the binder and baseball card holders, I love it!!! Also have 2 other people giving me their Sunday inserts and I can really start seeing some savings now. It's some work to clip and stay organized but well worth the savings.
    Have you tried making out your grocery list based on the sales ad and then paper clipping the coupons you're going to use to your list???? or use a clothes pin and clip an envelope to your shopping cart and put your coupons your going to use in there as you pull them from your binder (folder, etc.)
