Month End Coupon Organization

This is me sitting on my couch with the laptop, snuggie (which I definitely don't need these days) and my coupons.

Tomorrow is the last day of the month, so I started going through the coupons this past weekend to see if there were any that I especially wanted to make use of before they expire.

Saturday my mother and I made a trip to Walmart and I was able to use one coupon for $2.00 off Quattro Disposable Razors and $1.00 off fluorescent light bulbs. Both of these items were on my list of items to buy.

Today I need to pick up a few items at Food Lion so I'll check to see if any more of the almost expired coupons are worth using. If not, I'll happily throw them away. I don't intend to use them unless they are for items I really need and will use.

I hope to get my CVS and Walgreens list together today. I'm a little behind this week!

Hi Debbie,
I went through mine yesterday and threw out a bunch. I agree. Only use them for what we need.

Hi Debbie, I'm still trying to get in the groove with coupons, grocery list and menu planning, one of my biggest problems is finding balance. I'm amazed at all that you do and you work to boot, while I stay at home and sometimes don't get everything done!

Yes, thank you for the reminder, Debbie! This is on my list to work on a little bit tonight and tomorrow.

I got my best deals at Lowes Foods this week... I took my daughter with me, with my list and coupons in hand..... after we would find an item, I would tell her what the "next item" was. It was almost like a treasure hunt. We both had fun. I saw two ladies shopping at the same time, with nice zippered binders propped on their carts, searching their coupons and "going to it"... I was so impressed! :o)
