Stop Fumbling at the Store

This article, entitled Stop Fumbling at the Store comes from

Your coupons are clipped. You head to the busy, crowded store with a pocket or purse stuffed full – confident you’re ready. Then you get to the shelf. How many of that coupon did you have? Were there size specifications? You need to look. So you pull out the wad… Just far enough to drop half of it on the floor… and of course they don’t fall in a nice, neat pile. No, they flutter and scatter all over. Your confidence flees as your cheeks redden and frustration floods in.

Sound familiar? Here are some simple pre-store fixes to avoid grocery aisle coupon fumbling.

  1. Use a snap-shut case, the kind for school supplies. They are inexpensive, durable, and the perfect size to fit in the cart seat. (Unless someone is occupying said seat. Then they are perfect to sit on top of groceries and not get lost.)

  2. Before you leave, notate on your shopping list the number of coupons you have, and any size or variety limitations. Then you can simply refer to your list, instead of reading individual coupons. Forgot to do this or ran out of time? No problem. The snap-shut case is roomy enough to open and sort through your coupons without dropping any.

  3. Keep an empty envelope in the bottom of your coupon case. Then, if you choose not to purchase something, you simply slide the coupons you won’t use in the envelope.

    After you’ve removed coupons you won’t use, you can confidently give the cashier all coupons not in the envelope. Plus, a quick peek in the envelope reminds you of any rain checks you want before leaving.

  4. A snap-shut case is also big enough for other shopping essentials, such as a small calculator, a pen and your shopping list.

    One final way a snap-shut case is perfect: You can leave any rain checks, Catalinas or coupons you want for next week right in them. No more misplacing these money-saving bits of paper.
