    com and I am showing you how to save big money using coupons. In this segment, I will show you how to organize your coupons to maximize your savings. It's really frustrating to get to check out of the grocery store and realize that coupons you have are either expired or that you have forgotten them. So I will show you how to organize your coupons so that this situation doesn't happen to you. There are two major schools of thought when it comes to organizing your coupons, I will show you how to do both and I will tell you that I do a little bit of mix of both. The first method is to cut out all of your coupons and organize them by category whether pet foods, frozen foods or toiletry items. And then file them away for when you go to the grocery store.

    The second way to organize your coupons is to keep the full inserts from the Sunday newspaper, store them away in a manila folder like this one so that when an item goes on sale that you like to buy, you can easily refer back to it. As I mentioned, I do a little bit of both, I cut out the coupons I want, I need right away and store them in my coupon organizer. But then I keep my folders close at hand so then when something does go on sale, I can easily refer back to my coupons. So, that's how you organize your coupons for maximum savings. Now, we will move on to how to save money by creating a price book.
