While you are making your shopping list, go through your coupons to either use it before it expires or match your purchases with your coupons. Then staple the stack of coupons on the back side of your list. You face them such that you can flip back and forth from your list to your coupons. Carefully remove the staple at the cashier. no more shuffling while you shop.

    I use a binder with baseball card holders and dividers for each section of the store(condiments, frozen, dairy, breakfast etc.)I use coupon databases- some are free- to locate the sale and coupon match ups-- can save tons of money that way. The first four months that I clipped I saved over 700 dollars. emoticon
