Many of us try to save money by cutting down on electrical, and water usage. We learn all the tips and tricks on saving gas, or stretch out our mileage to make that tank goes further. Here is another area that you can try to save money: using grocery coupons.
- Something to keep your coupons in
- Some type of dividers
- An index card box, optional
First thing first, and that is to find something to store those coupons that you have saved and collected. It will save you time looking through that stack of coupons at the grocery store.
You can purchase an accordion coupon pocket, or an index file holder at the Dollar Store to keep your coupons organized. Also, you can use envelopes to sort out your coupons into categories.
I personally like to use the index cards holder since it is steady when I need to set it down to look through the categories for that coupon. It already comes with dividers, and all I have to do is to label them.
If you have the index file holder, or the accordion file holder, it came with the dividers already.
Label your categories, such as cereals, breads, dairy products, or canned foods. You got the idea.
Organize your coupons in your coupon holder, and take it with you when you go grocery shopping.
If you have a grocery list with you, it would be much easier to locate your coupons, unless you already have them on hands.
Go to couponmom.com to see what offers in your local area.
If you have a Kroger in your area, go to shortcuts.com to have the coupons loaded on to your Kroger’s card.
Also check out coupons.com and eversave.com, or just type in coupons in your search engine to find different sites.
- Use coupons that have the closest expiration date first.

- Buy on sale items to save even more
