Tuesday Tip: Daily Couponing for Weekly Savings

Between finishing up my master’s, working multiple jobs, blogging, and all the other in between, adding more to my daily/weekly/monthly routine seems nearly impossible. (I’m sure you can relate.) However, after jumping into the couponing game (in a slower season of my life) and realizing the potential savings I could glean, the time becomes well worth it.

That being said, it’s not easy to squeeze it all in. Meal planning, cutting, planning, and shopping all take time. I’ve come up with my own way to get all of these accomplished in a week so that my day planner and bank account still love me. I share this with you to give you a starting point, to see how all of these tasks can fit into your weekly schedule. Keep in mind though, you have to do what works for you.

I’ve decided that 20 minutes a day is quite simple to fit in if I’m prudent with my time. Here’s how my Couponing Week looks:

Sunday
Get the Sunday paper (at least 2 copies)
Shop at Publix
Cut 1 insert (usually in front of the TV)

Monday
Cut 1 insert

Tuesday
Cut 1 insert (depending on paper)

Wednesday
File coupons into binder

Thursday
Plan my meals for the next week using sale ads
List “needs” – items I do not have and will need to get

Friday
List my “wants” – items that are great deals & I want to stockpile!
Gather coupons for my list from binder

Saturday
Gather coupons for my list from computer (printables)
Shop at Kroger

Of course, not every week looks like this – but having daily goals keeps me on target for major savings by the end of the week. My coupons are organized, my meals are planned, and my groceries shopped for. It works for me.

What works for you? Do you have a system or clip as you need?
