Cheaply Made Toy...

Today we took a trip to the Carnegie Science Center. A generous friend of mine in my playgroup, Burgh Families & Friends, planned a trip today and we got in free because of her membership.  It was a nice time and we were able to stay for only a few hours and I didn't feel guilty because we didn't pay for admission.

On the way out, B begged me for a toy from the science center store, as usual.  Today I told him he had $6 to spend if he chose, since he had this week's allowance and last week's too.  He chose a cheaply made toy, which I tried to talk him out of; however, since it was his money that he had earned, I thought if he chose this toy maybe it would show him how fast you could spend your money and end up with nothing to show for it.

He played with this toy in the car, and when he got home he played for a little bit longer. Next thing I knew, it was broken.  He was very upset.  I knew when he bought this toy that is was cheaply made, but I thought maybe the company should hear what I thought about it.  I looked up the website on the packaging and the company looks like a legitimate one with a lot of interesting and what looks to be quality products.  So, I decided to write them a short note about how this product broke very quickly, and it was poor quality.  Who knows if anything will come out of it, but a short, very professional comment made me feel a little bit better. 

From my experience lately in writing short compliments to companies about their products I use and like, I found that they have responded kindly and send product coupons, sometimes free coupons, for me to use.  I usually don't complain about a product unless I have something legitimate to say... so hopefully something comes out of this.

Yes, I'm Cheap... Have you heard?

Today I caught myself doing something and I realized, boy am I cheap.  Chris was taking a shower and I was doing my makeup, and he handed me an empty tube of toothpaste to throw away.  I took it, and then flattened it out as much as possible, and handed it back to him. I said, "You can use this once or twice more.  If you could only get a few more toothbrushings out of each tube... you could save... well, one or two tubes over a lifetime. Which I get for free anyway. Oh." 

He thinks I'm cheap... however, when the cheap-ness pays off, he's not complaining.

A few other examples of things I do that are pretty cheap.

I have a collection of paper that I use to print on mostly - for coupons, recipes, etc. Currently it's old letterhead from Chris's company they were going to throw away, printouts from my work, etc.  I have another folder with "good" (aka new) paper.  When we go to print something "good" (a letter, etc) we have to swap out good paper for the regular (aka old) paper.

While doing laundry, I realized that using half a dryer sheet is as effective as a whole one. So I cut all of the dryer sheets in the box in half... I figure, if you need more, just use two halves.

We hardly ever use paper towels. Almost two years ago, I bought a 12 or 18 pack from Sam's Club... we still have about 6.  Anything fabric-y we throw away in this house (old dishtowels, ripped flannel sheets, etc) get turned into rags.

What cheap things have you caught yourself doing lately?

5 A Day from Couponing to Disney

If you haven't been to the Couponing to Disney site, you're missing out!  Her site is wonderful for many reasons, but one of my favorite features on her site is the 5-a-day.

The 5-a-day is a campaign to write to companies to get coupons.  This site lists 5 companies each day, and the links to their contact page.  You can fill out your information, and I always include a compliment on their products.  In the past few weeks I have done a few of these and I actually received some coupons this week.  I wrote to Smart Ones that I like their meals, especially the Orange Chicken Meal (it tastes like chinese food to me!) and they sent me four coupons for 75 cents off a meal.  If you have a complaint about a product, go ahead and write that if you feel like it, but I almost always choose a specific product that I like and write about that.  Be sincere...

This is a good way to get special coupons that you can use for what you buy specifically, or receive coupons for products that aren't usually in the papers.

Organizing your Coupons

I've had several questions lately on how I keep my coupons organized.  Michele even requested that I blog about it.

My first advice to someone who has started couponing is to find a system that works for you. I started with a small accordion file, which is good for a beginning couponer or someone who only collects specific coupons.  When I realized that the 13 pockets weren't enough for me to a.) hold all the coupons I was collecting, and b:) find what I needed quickly in the store, I switched to my own system of a plastic basket filled with envelopes, and the envelopes had all the categories I needed.  This system worked a while for me, but the envelopes did not hold up for long, and the basket was open, which meant I had to be very careful with it when I left the house.

Finally while reading one of the many couponing blogs I like, I found out about My Coupon Keeper.  This has been my favorite system so far, and it is the one I use now.

The idea of it is pretty simple actually, it is a very sturdy plastic box, with tabbed dividers that come with labels that you can affix yourself.  When I got mine in the mail, I didn't see the labels in the box, so I made my own and that is mostly what I use now for my categories.




Here are two pictures of my personal coupon organizer.  I have the categories set up specifically in the categories that I like to search for the coupons, and then in alphabetical order.

Here's my list of categories. As you will notice, most are pretty general, except the health and beauty items are broken out in more categories... the main reason is that a lot of these items are cheap or free at the drugstores, so using my system this way will help me get the maximum amount of free stuff!
BOGO/Free - This is used for the BOGO coupons, free coupons, and high value coupons.  This way I'm less likely to miss one I really wanted to use.
Baby/Kids
Baking
Beauty - skin care, misc Health & Beauty
Beverages
Body Wash/Lotion
Bread
Canned
Cereal
Cleaning
Dairy
Deodorant
Drug Items
Eye Care
Feminine Products
First Aid
Frozen
Hair
Laundry
Makeup
Meat
Misc
Organic - This is broken out separately because the store I primarily shop at has a specific section for organic products.
Paper/Plastic
Pasta/Rice
Produce
Sauce/Seasoning
Shaving
Snacks
Toothpaste
Yogurt
CVS
Giant Eagle
Rite Aid
Target
Walgreens

I chose the stores at the end specifically because they are the stores that I receive the most store specific coupons.

The coupon system also comes with these small plastic holders, which I use for the following: one for unsorted coupons (for this box) and one for unsorted coupons for restaurants, stores, etc.  I'll show that section in a bit.


So this is how I store the coupons.  Once a month, usually in the last week of the month, I spend a little time and go through what I have.  My main coupon box is mostly full by the end of the month, so I purge the coupons that are expiring that month. Doing this in the last week means that I have time to go through the ones that will expire and go to the store if there are any HOT coupons to be used!  (Most of the time I will make a run to the store to purchase whatever is in my BOGO/Free section!)

Each week, I look at the savings/deals blogs and find out what I'm going to buy. I write down a shopping list for each store with what I am planning to purchase that week.  Then I either match the coupons from my organizer or print whatever I need to from the Internet.  I store each store's list and coupons in a separate accordion file.



My categories for this file are the stores that I will shop at or do deals for.

Rite Aid
CVS
Walgreens
Target
Walmart
Giant Eagle
Foodland
Shop N Save
Kmart
Office Supplies
Other
Online (for online coupon codes, etc)

Now don't think that since I have a category for the store that I shop at each store each week. Oh no.  I keep this file separate for several reasons, but the main one is that I like to do the drugstore shopping (CVS and Rite Aid) on my lunch hour since I work downtown. This saves me a lot of time and most of the time I buy what's on my list.  This way I can keep my Register Rewards (Walgreens), Extra Care Bucks (CVS), and UP Rewards (Rite Aid) with my weekly list.  Also if I find that I am stopping at Giant Eagle for one thing, I will have my file with the hot deals that I don't want to miss.

Last week I did all of my lists for the week over the weekend.  Then I found that I didn't make it to any of the stores at all. Some weeks are like that, and I don't feel like I missed anything because even though there were things I could have gotten for free, it was nothing I needed desperately.

Lastly, I'll show you the file I use to organize restaurant and store coupons.  I have changed this system several times as well... they used to be by category but some categories, such as restaurants and stores, had a lot of coupons, where other categories were empty, or there was not a category where a coupon fit well.  Now I organize them alphabetically and this saves me a lot of time.


Like I said - you need to find the system that works for you!! 

Other systems I didn't mention, that I have not tried are the binder system, and organizing coupon inserts by week.

The binder system was demonstrated on the Extreme Couponing show on TLC by Joanie the Krazy Coupon Lady.  I found this one to be time consuming for me, and I'd rather have a smaller box of coupons to stick in my tote bag that I take to the store. 

Organizing the coupon inserts by week has several advantages.  First, if you buy multiple papers to collect the coupons (I usually purchase at least three) then you don't have to cut them all.  Second, the deals/coupons blogs usually feature the deals and list the coupons by week that they were released (i.e. Smart Source, 1/23 or Redplum 1/23, etc).  I don't like to use this method because I collect coupons from many sources... and I like to have them all with me when I make a trip.
Do you have a method or system that you like? Please comment on it if you have anything to add!

Update: I have a special deal for my readers.  If you enter code JOURNEYTODEBTREE, you will receive an additional purse sized folder FREE!

Progress

I know I haven't been working on this blog at all lately...  I apologize for that.  We have had some issues to deal with, one of them being selecting a new daycare for our son. 

As for our progress in savings - I have not been shopping much at all. I have been sticking to my allowance. After paying bills today I realize that we need to make a budget - and quick!!  Even though we've cut our daily spending, our bills and debt are still a big portion of our monthly budget.

My first day of not spending

So, today marks the start of our strict "No Spend Year".   So far, day 1 has gone well! I don't plan on leaving the house today, so that should make not spending pretty easy.  I just have to resist the online deals, which I am passing along today but hopefully not partaking in!

I started the day by weeding through my coupon stash.  I'll be doing a post soon about where I get coupons, how I organize them, etc, later this week.  I would say about 1/3 of my coupons got pitched (well, recycled) because they expired on 12/31.  So I weeded through the coupons, and filed the ones to be filed.  Now I am going through all of the online deals and my e-mail, printing/sharing coupons, and going through my mail basket / inbox processing the paperwork and looking for coupons.

Today will be easy because I just bought a bit of food at the store yesterday and made a bunch of food for our New Year's party.  We'll have plenty to eat today and tomorrow, so the temptation to order food out will be gone.   I'm anxious to see how my first day back to work will be!

And while I was typing this post... my N key fell off of my laptop!  I wonder how to put it back on...

I have 2 coupon codes for an additional 20% off diapers from Amazon.com.  The codes are good until 1/31/11.

If you are a member of Amazon Mom (free to sign up!) you can get 15% off diapers already, and stacked with this 20% off code, you can get an awesome deal!

If you'd like to be eligible to win, please leave a comment on this post, I will use random.org to select a winner based on comment number.

I will select two winners! The contest will end at 12:00 PM EST on 1/9/2011.   If selected, I will e-mail you the code!
