How To Enjoy Using Coupons


Beautiful Latina Woman with CouponsTruth be told, I have always envied people who coupon seriously. All of the fantastic stories of going shopping and actually making money have always intrigued me. But in the past, I was always that person who cut coupons on Sunday and forgot about them on Monday.  I never looked at them again until I was hit with the desire to become a master couponer again. Yes, I made up the word. 🙂

But last week we were shopping in one of the major big box stores and we passed several people with coupon pouches and one with a coupon binder. It was then that I decided it was time to give couponing another try.

This time, I decided to invest in the notion of couponing. By invest I mean this time I am not going to cut coupons and put them in a drawer. This time I am going to spend the time to organize, I am going to invest a few dollars to develop a system that I think will work for me and I am going to tell you guys about it which will make me accountable. You guys keep me honest.

I realize many of you are coupon geniuses, but for the beginner, like me, I will explain the process.


If you follow my blog, you know I am a budget shopper. The bargain diva…that’s me. So of course, I bought at budget prices from one of our discount stores. The supply list is short.

– Binder $.99

– Tabbed dividers $.2.50 for a box of 50

– Labels $0.00 I already had them

– Baseball card organizers $7.00 ($3.50 per box )

– Sheet protectors $0.00 I already had them

Total: $10.49

  1. Hi Clearissa,

    Good to see you here, and I am glad you shared your guest post with us at the ABC (Aha!NOW Blog Community), so that we could all head here and read it 🙂

    You are right about all that you mentioned, and it certainly makes sense to make use of the discounts and coupons whenever they come up. I do the same as well, and always avail the sales and offers too. After all, a penny saved is a penny earned – just as my mom used to say. We don’t get too many coupons around to make binders, as that would have to be perhaps from the same company or shopping network, but we do use them.

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice week ahead 🙂
