Attention Kmart shoppers……Yes, you heard it right! Kmart is doubling manufacturer’s coupons up to $1.00. It is almost unheard of in my area for a store to double coupons up to $1.00.
I stumbled upon a great deal on 24 packs of Pepsi a few days ago while shopping in my local Kmart. The 24 packs were on sale for $6.49 each. Attached to each box was a $1.00 off coupon. The coupon doubled at checkout.
There are a few stipulations on the deal:
- You must be a Shop Your Way Rewards Member.
- You must purchase at least $25 in pantry or health/beauty items.
- Only five coupons per day will be doubled.
- Only four of the same coupon will be doubled.
OK, so you have started clipping coupons from the paper and printing coupons online. They are stuffed in your purse, in your kitchen junk drawer and on your nightstand. You have built up quite the stash of coupons. You will soon discover you need to organize those coupons or you will never use them.
Years ago, long before “Extreme Couponing” was all the rage, I started out using a Velveeta Cheese box to hold and organize my coupons. It was cheap and easy. I made cute little dividers to keep my coupons organized by type. I had five main categories: frozen foods, cold foods, pantry, cleaning and personal products. Later, I added a few more categories. I would set my little box down on the seat of the grocery cart and off I would go. Near the front of the box, I added a small section for coupons that I would use on my next shopping trip. As I placed the item in my cart, I would transfer the coupon to a separate divider section in the front. When I was ready to checkout, all my coupons that I was using were ready to hand to the cashier. I kept my Velveeta Cheese coupon box in a little tote bag. That was my coupon organization system for years. It was cheap, and it worked for me! Another cheap idea I used was a baby wipes container. It was a convenient size and had a lid that snapped shut.
