I’m an inconsistent coupon-clipper. I ignore the newspaper coupon circulars as I rarely buy the food featured there. But the mailer coupons for kids’ clothes? Or the local pizza place? I’m all over those. The trick is to remember I have the coupons, and then to FIND them once I need them. Tracy to the rescue!
I found that my counter was overflowing with coupons to The Children’s Place, Sears Portrait Studios, Build-a-Bear, Bath & Body Works, etc. And wouldn’t you know it when I needed a coupon, I couldn’t find it, or it had already expired. So I had an “ahhh” moment and decided to just put everything into a coupon organizer. I made categories such as:
- Home Improvement
- Consignment Stores
- Health & Body Stores
- Children’s Clothing
- Big Box (Kohl’s, Target)
- Kids’ Activities
- Current Events (anything that’s a one-time only event).
Now, I’m thinking this could help out our mountain of take-out menus!
