Organize Your Grocery Coupons by Aisle

 

I wish I could take credit for this amazing idea, however I learned it from my mother.  Grocery coupons can produce significant savings but you have to remember to use them in order to reap the benefits!  Many coupon organizers are divided by category of food, but the grocery store may not be organized in exactly the same fashion. (My biggest pet peeve is bagels at the end of the cereal aisle, in the bread aisle and in the frozen breakfast item aisle!)

If you haven’t checked out my previous post about creating a shopping spreadsheet, check it out.  Based on your shopping spreadsheet you can determine what aisle to find the product with a coupon.  This will require a shift in the way you think about your coupons, but a little extra preparation at home will make for a faster shopping trip.  

You can see from the picture that a small plastic case with divider tabs was used to organize the coupons.  My mum keeps a binder clip in the container so she can easily attach the container to the carriage.  The front of the container can be used to hold coupons you need to present at the checkout.

If you’re anything like me, grocery shopping is not exactly your idea of a good time.  Anything that can be done to minimize time in the store and maximize savings sounds good to me!
