Extreme Couponing Tip: Prepare Coupons Before Shopping

Chelsea Shepherd

You’ve seen customers in line, scrambling to cut coupons from inserts before their turn in checkout, frantically matching up products with the sales flyer. But Krazy Couponers are different; we’re organized and streamlined, knowing that efficiency creates order. A big part of this is preparing coupons before you walk in the store door.

Clip It: One of the most vital parts of being a consistent couponer is clipping and organizing coupons on a regular basis. To keep things easier, clip coupons frequently, either once a week or the day your inserts arrive. This way, you’ll avoid inserts stacking up and becoming a formidable task. If you have willing kids, they can lend a hand with clipping!

Match It: When you’re ready to start your shopping list, visit TheKrazyCouponLady.com or a local blog that matches up available coupons with the sales at your local store. On your shopping list, indicate the sale items, which coupons you’ll be using, and the quantity you’d like to purchase.

Pull It: Once your list is complete, open your coupon binder or accordion file and pull all the applicable coupons you’ll be using. File them in a store envelope or paper clip them to your shopping list. If you’ll be doing multiple transactions, sort the coupons according to the desired transactions. Now you’re ready to go!

Never miss a coupon, deal or freebie again!
