Thanks for the tips I am new with all the coupon stuff. this helps me a lot.

this helps a lot! Do you also have a list of categories to sort coupons into?

Yes. I do MOST of my grocery shopping at Shoprite. I LOVE Shoprite. So I organize my coupons in order of their store aisles. For example, aisle 1 is produce, and deli. Aisle 2 is deodorant, razors, feminine products, etc. Everyone has their own way of organizing. Whatever works best for you. I out grew my binder and am waiting for a new one to come. Can’t wait !

that’s a good idea, I might try it!

Who can remember all this? Do you know it by heart now?

maybe we could quiz each other, Jenny?

good idea on the quiz..ive been couponing for a while now..and still dont know every thing lol

Loved the coupon lingo. I feel so smart now

Thanks for the coupon lingo…I forget a lot of these…ha ha

Who knew there was coupon lingo, to translate? This is a HUGE help. Thank you.

I had better study… the lingo.

Okay don’t laugh but I thought BOGO was some kind of sale that Payless had. I had no idea what it mean then I started seeing it at other places I had wondered what it meant for years. Can anyone say DUH JENNY…. LOL Atleast I know now… Now maybe I can learn some of the other codes.

In face I thouhgt at one time it was something to do with the payless boots being on sale then I thought it was a brand of shoes that Payless carried. Who would of thought.
