$3 Couponing Kit

With school supplies at there lowest prices of the year, it’s the best time to think outside of school and see how you can use these supplies for daily tasks. This couponing kit was quickly put together with just a few items found at Target.

$1 Seven-pocket file: absolutely essential for coupon organization,  and small enough to fit in our purses. Our 7 pockets are labeled by broad categories so every coupon has a place such as, “Food”, “Toiletries”, and “Housekeeping.”

$1 Mini scissors: no matter how many times we try tearing a coupon off with a straight line does not happen; making these little scissors a must  while shopping.  Cashiers always prefer a nicely trimmed coupon over a jagged over-sized one that wont fit into their register properly, anything to keep the cashiers happy will make your couponing experience a lot nicer…we promise!

$1 Calculator: Save yourself a headache trying to figure out percentages and sales tax, (especially when shopping with children), and bring a mini calculator.

Our favorite couponing blog is Hip2Save.com. Collin, the author posts several times a day ensuring you get the best deals around. Our favorite place to print coupons is Coupons.com + Target.com.

With all these printing you’ll need lots of paper and this is the time of year to stock up. Often you can find deals at office supply stores (we love Staples), making this paper as low as FREE after rebate. Check ads and Hip2save often.

Even if you just commit to useing coupons on one item such as cereal, you’re wallet will see the difference. Let us know how you go on.

Happy Couponing!
