How do you organize your coupons?

Everyone has a different way to organize their coupons! I have tried a few different methods and have found that for me the accordion style coupon holder works best! My friend Janel, from Good Deal Mama has a whole post about organizing with a Coupon Binder. If you want to check out her method, you can read her post about Coupon Binder organizing here.

Facebook Guilt…

Do you know what I am talking about? I was chatting with my sister on the phone today and we decided that it was a real thing. People are letting Facebook make them feel guilty! If you have no clue what I am talking about then you might not be on Facebook! The Facebook guilt comes from not telling your “friends” happy Birthday on their birthday, or from not replying to a message or comment left on your wall. Facebook guilt also comes from “defriending” people or blocking them all together. It’s silly, I agree…because honestly…do we need another thing to feel guilty about? NO! Within the past few months I have hidden “friends” on Facebook and even defriended and blocked people. It’s not a popularity contest…and I don’t need 15,000 friends on Facebook to feel good about myself…simple as that. I have made great connections with new friends, readers, and family on Facebook and love it for that…but I REFUSE to feel guilty any longer for cutting the fat out of my life! Are you with me? Here is a quick “how to” on unfriending or unliking a page.

To unfriend someone, simply go to their page, look in the left colum at the bottom and click on “unfriend”

To unlike a business page, simply go to a post on Facebook…slide your mouse over from their name and an X will pop up…click on it and choose to “unlike”

I think sometimes we add too much to our lives and it drowns out the things (or people) who are important to us. I will be posting on how to slow down the junk mail in the next few days…simplifying is the key…it adds more time in our day!

What kind of couponer are you?

Okay, so I’ve been couponing for a good long while and have tried about every method around to organize my coupons. I recently decided that I would like to try a Couponizer and as you can see above…it’s not for my kind of couponing. Bummer, I was so excited to get it!

Why is it that this method does NOT work for me? Well, I like to have ALL of my coupons with me when I go out and about. I think the Couponizer is set up for those who want to make a list and organize their couponsbased on that one trip. I am always finding deals on clearance and would hate to not be able to use my coupons on that item! I tried two shopping trips with the Couponizer and was just not happy with that style of organizing.

Now with all of that said, here is why this method might be good for you. If you are just getting started or stick strictly to a shopping list, this can be a very useful tool for you. I love that it’s divided by category or isle that you might be shopping on. I love that it’s got a pocket upfront to hold the coupons that you are using at check out. And I love that it comes with a clear bag that you can pop it down into when you are not actively using it. If you want to order a Couponizer, use coupon code DOTTEDLINE25 to get it for just $14.97
