Help Sign matching coupons to future good deals

I just started stockpiling coupons a few weeks ago and I'm already up to my eyeballs in multiples. I get the idea of saving multiple coupons until I can get a good deal on something. My question is, how do you do it? Do you just remember all the coupons you have and then when you see something on sale you pull them out? Or is there a secret trick I don't know about. ...cause I'm just itching to use these ten Duncan Hines brownie q's I have.

I have a spreadsheet of all of my coupons. Then when I see a phenomenal deal, I go to my spreadsheet and then to my coupon holder that is in alphabetical order and pull those coupons.

My theory is that the manufacturers coupons and the products they have at stores that go on sale are the same occurrence in one. my experience is that when i get a coupon from the Sunday paper the item is usually on sale that week at the stores.

I see the same thing...alot of stores put items on sale when they know that a coupon from the manufacturer is coming out on Sunday...at least at my store anyway....:0

Good luck in using those duncan hines coups...

ahh ha! Maybe that explains the big mystery of how most major grocery stores basically have the same stuff in their weekly circular.

You can put them in an order that makes sense to you-- alphabetical or category seem to be the most popular.
Then figure out when your ads come out for the stores in your area. Come find the forums here for those stores and see if there are previews. Several stores have previews of a day or two, others have previews of two or three weeks.

Once you look over the preview ads, you can make a list, pull coupons, and then organize them in the way that make sense to you. I don't drag binders into the store, so the way I organize mine is by taking folded papers with each store's name on them and putting the coupons in them. I store them all in a pampers wipes box that I do drag into each store. Others use envelopes with the store names and dates of the sales on them, others take their whole binder in with just a dated list of what they want to get.

I have a coupon book...but it's just made of cardboard so when I started to stuff it...it broke...

I ordered a binder and pages so I can put my coupons into little spots so I can see them...I guess I am turning into an extremer...but only time will tell

My grocery store starts their sales on Thursday so I get the ad in the Wednesday's paper and work on my shopping list on a night I have some free time...We ususally go to the store on Sunday afternoon to cut down on the quanitity of people in the store.

I currently have mine categorized, but am considering switching to alphabetical as it is getting out of hand. LOL. Also trying to figure out the spreadsheet thing, since I had several q's that got wasted when they were misfiled and could have been free product.

My husband is offering to teach me how to do a spreadsheet..Told him I was willing to learn but when I am not overwhelmed. He said it would help my organization..and I replied...What's wrong with my organization skills? That kinda ended our conversation!
