Getting Started

Here are the basics to getting started:
  • Get SuperOrganized!
  • Collecting Coupons!
  • Stockpiling!
  • How to use your coupons!
Get Organized:
  • Filing Method
  • Binder/Baseball Card Holder Method
  • Coupon Box Method 

  • Filing Method:

    You need:

    *Accordion/File Cabinet

    One option is to purchase an accordion file or file cabinet and place your weekly inserts into it, grouped by date.  Simply write the insert date across the front and file it away.  Then, before you shop, you find the coupon you need and clip it only then and use it.  This way, you can save lots of time trying to clip, sort and organize on a weekly basis.

    Coupon Binder:

    You need:

    *Zip up Binder
    * Sleeve protectors (Various sizes although 9-pocket ones work very well)

    First of all, decide which categories you want.  You can use any categories you want and even sub categorize. Then, insert cut coupons in each baseball card slot in its' specific category.If you want to be SuperOrganized, you can even add a Table of Contents.  Also, we recommend printing out copies of your fave store policies and carrying them in your binder. You never know when you may need it.  I also carry a pen, a calculator, and a small pair of scissors, just in case!

Collecting Coupons:
There are many different sources for coupons. 

The Sunday newspaper-You can have one delivered to your doorstep, or pick one up at your local store.  Dollar Tree even sells them for $1. We recommend purchasing at least 2. 

Red Plum- These come in the mail weekly.  While some look like junk mail, usually if you sort through it you will find the insert that has valuable coupons inside.

Online- You can print from many sites such as,,, and  You can also sign up for newsletters from brand name sites such as, and to receive coupons for their products.

How to use your coupons:
Now that you have your coupons clipped and organized you are good to go, right?  Wrong.  Sure, you can take them and save a few dollars, but the true key to SuperSaving is knowing how to use your coupons. 

Double or Triple Coupons:
“Double” or “triple” coupons is a promotion offered by the store in an effort to get you to shop there. Doubling coupons is when the store will take your coupon and match the value of it up to a certain amount.  

Coupon stacking:
There are two types of coupons – a store coupon and a manufacturer coupon.  You may use one manufacturer coupon per item. However, to maximize your savings, you can use both a store coupon and a manufacturer coupon on one item.  This is referred to as coupon stacking.

Coupon Etiquette:

*Do Not Photocopy Internet Printable Coupons. Doing so is FRAUD!

*Don’t Use Coupons On Items They Are Not Intended To Be Used For

*Never Use Expired Coupons! Many times you can use an expired coupon without a cashier noticing, but the store will not get reimbursed for the coupon since it was expired.

*Be nice to your cashier!  Always be polite. 

*Be nice to fellow SuperSavers!  While it is awesome to get items for free or cheap, there really isn’t a need to clear shelves.  Stay within your “limit” so others can enjoy savings as well!
