· Getting your coupons redeemed may sound like a simple task, but actually finding an easy way to get the to the register takes some practice. There are many ways to keep yourself organized. This week I watched as we had our sale day to see how folks who were new to couponing were handling their carts. Here is some advice for those of you who were struggling a bit.

First, try to make sure you have a special place for any coupon that matches an item I have placed in the cart. That is the “redemption pile.” Some ideas include a special envelope, one dedicated section of your wallet organizer, or file, or even a pouch that fits inside your coupon binder.

Next place my coupons vertical so that they stick up as you are shopping around the store.

Pick your style!  I’ve seen a simple system of a Ziploc bag and a clothespin. I've seen a complex three fold out trapper keeper that would make middle school kids cry with envy. Anything to have a special place that has a secure closure will be good. Keep them all within reach of the child seat area.

Next you have to be sure you are including any extra coupons. Like your FREE milk receipt, or VIP reward coupons. Those should automatically go in your redemption pile when you are given the receipt.

Catalina rewards should also automatically go from register to redemption pile. You can put a little note in here about what Catalina’s are running next on your list of things to buy so you remember to pick them up while doing your shopping.

Things NOT to do:
Place each coupon on top of the item while riding in the cart. The air movement will blow them around, and you’ll lose your coupons.
· Keep a fist full of coupons. These get all crumply and wrinkled. You may even tear one while shopping. The only coupons in your hand should be items you are looking for, but have not made it to your cart yet.
· Place coupons under one heavy item in the cart. Although this will keep them from flying around, they still get lost in the cart and sometimes in random aisles.

All internet coupon print limits are subjective. At the time of this email coupons were available for print. If the daily or weekly print limit has been reached, the coupon will be automatically pulled from the websites. You can try to print again tomorrow. All coupons listed are not available in our stores. We list them so you can order or find them to save you money. Check with clipping services, trade boards, or ebay to find coupons not in your store. It is our intent to help you find as many savings opportunities as possible. Enjoy!
