Extreme Couponing

Extreme couponing has taken off across the nation and inserts are falling from the sky. Well at least couponing is all over. So finding some good coupon clear plastic photo or baseball card holders or sheets are becoming harder and harder to find. I personally use the middle one below. The four slots per sheet. They are small enough to get a lot of coupons on one sheet, but big enough to get the coupons to show what they are without folding the coupons up so small you can’t tell what coupon it is.

But like I say in my Couponing 101 – Coupon organization is a personal choice as to how to do it. And to make sure you do what works for YOU! Pick the three slots to have your coupons opened up more so you can visually see what is inside the pocket without trying to pull them out. Or get the smaller pockets where you can get more coupons on one sheet to save room.Coupon book page inserts20 (Twenty Pages) – Pro 3-Pocket Coupon Storage Pages (3 Horizontal 3 1/2 x 8 inch Sized Top Loaded Slots)

When I started couponing years ago I thought I would get a coupon binder that looked very office orientated. It was a black fake leather binder. It lasted all of a couple weeks before it fell apart. I came across a binder that seemed to fit couponing perfectly. It had a large three ring binder on one side, and on the other it had a smaller three ring binder. It zipped all the way around and had pockets and a handle that made it really easy to keep things inside without falling out.  And I could hang on to it while wrestling little ones.

It was a Case-It binder. There are many many different versions, single three rings or doubles. And they come in all kinds of dimensions, for the casual couponer to the extreme couponer.

Best part about that binder, is that after all of these years – I still have the same binder! Its full to the max, and is about 5-6 inches thick. But yet still does the job, zips closed, and I can still hang on to it while I wrestle the kids!

Here are the selections they have on sale for Case-It Binders – where you can find all sizes. Or you can see the version of the one I use below:

caseitCase-it 2-in-1 Adjustable Zipper 3-Ring Dual Binder, 1 Set of 3-Inch Rings and 1 Set of 1.5-Inch Rings, Red, Dual-500-RED
On sale for as low as $29.66 and free shipping

  • 3-Inch binder rings and 1.5-Inch binder rings in one unique package
  • Adjustable spine expands binder for up to 5-Inch of capacity
  • Removable pencil case, padded media pockets, and plenty of other storage space
  • Built-in handle and shoulder strap
  • Unique angled zipper design for easy opening and closing

coupon binder We were recently asked which coupon binder we think is best and do we still use it. We had never really thought about it much, but we have actually used our Case-It Binder for almost my entire coupon career! Never really thought about it but it has been close to 4 years now that we have used it. I used an old black briefcase looking binder for just a few months till it fell apart. We went out and got a 4 inch with a 2 inch- a double ring binder.

So check them out for your self .

Extreme Couponing – ONE COUPON PER PURCHASE?

Many people wonder If what it means when it says One Coupon Per Purchase. And how can I use two coupons per purchase?

 

Question from my inbox this week,

First I want to thank you for your thriftymom website.  I’ve been
couponing for a year now and I still have questions.  I learn
something new everyday about coupons….I do have a question after
watching TLC’s Extreme Couponing, in the show the couponers bought a
large number of items and used coupons for every item…… I’ve read
the fine print on the coupon and most of these coupons have written on
them “one per purchase” or “one per purchase of like item”……..I’ve
tried to use multiple coupons, for instance, Act Popcorn at Winco and
the cashier refused my coupons because they read, one per
purchase……on the show there were items the couponers purchased and
i have the same coupons and mine read “one per purchase”.  So does
this depend on the store and cashier to take these multiple coupons?
does it also depend on the store and cashier to double a coupon that
reads “do not double”.  I hope you can explain this to me.

Answer: This is a great question and asked at every coupon class I teach, so I thought it would be a good topic to cover.  First let me say the fine print on a coupon should be read and honored.   A store has the right to refuse a coupon  ( which is silly they get reimbursed the full amount plus 8 cents).  That being said this is what the fine print means…

One Coupon per Purchase

One Coupon Per Purchase

 

If your coupon says ” One coupon per purchase”

That means you are only able to use one coupon per item purchased.  ( NOT buy 5 items and scan the same coupon 5 times).  If you are buying or purchasing 5 items you can then use 5 coupons.  Ask yourself or the cashier how many items did I purchase….5, so that means you can use 5 coupons  (One per purchase). You can have multiple ”purchases” within one transaction.

If the coupon was to say  “One coupon per transaction” then yes you are only to use one coupon for one item on that shopping trip.

If the coupon was to say ” One coupon per House Hold” then you are only use one coupon , not even on a new transaction or next shopping trip.

Can I Use Two Coupons on One Item

Can I Use Two Coupons on One Item

 

Many of you may have noticed P&G changed the wording on there coupons.  They now reads ” Limit one coupon per purchase, Limit of 4 like coupon in the same shopping trip” The top line means the same as above, one coupon per item or purchase ( you can buy 3 of the same items and use 3 coupons)…. but then the next line gives you even further instruction.  Only 4 like items in the same shopping trip.  So you can buy as many P&G products as you want in one transaction….but limited to 4 of each product. So 4 toothpaste, 4 shampoo, 4 bodywash…you get the idea.

The main thing is to remember a transaction is different than a purchase.  A transaction is the sum of all the items or all the purchases you made.

So Yes you can use two coupons per purchase.
