Tip of the week: Couponing Bucket

Tara’s Thursday Tip:

Here’s one for the couponers out there! Once you start paying attention to coupons and free samples, you suddenly realize that coupons are everywhere! They come in the mail, they are tucked into your products, they just seem to magically appear! This leads to a lot of little pieces of paper floating around (which makes me nuts!!) So I have started using a 16 qt sterilite bucket to help keep the paper hurricane under control.

During the week I toss all the random coups that come in into the bucket. On Sat morning, I pull out the coupon books from the newspaper and any ads that I need and put them in there as well. I also keep my scissors and stapler in the bucket. This way when I have time to sit and cut coups, (which I usually do on my bed, in front of the tv) all I need to do is grab the bucket and I have everything I need!

The bucket then becomes my trash can for all of the scrap paper as I am cutting away. When I’m done, I just dump the trash into recycling and I’m all cleaned up!

Hope this tip helps… Happy Couponing!!
