First, you have your coupon box or holder that holds all your coupons. As you create your shopping list, move the coupons you plan to use into one envelope for each store or somewhere special, so you won’t have to hunt for them. As you walk through the store, whenever you grab an item off of the shelves that you know you have a coupon for, move that coupon to your wallet or back pocket, so you simply have to grab them all out and hand them to the cashier. Usually there will be a few items that are either sold out or not on sale as you expected. Moving your coupons around as you shop will help you save time, since you won’t have to sort through your coupons as you pick up items or while the cashier is waiting.
