I was organizing my coupons today and getting rid of ones that have expired and making a mental note to use the ones that were going to expire soon. Except with me, “mental note” always translates to: “Oops, I totally forgot about that thing I was supposed to be making a mental note of.”
Then I had a baskets moment: why not set a reminder to use said coupons before their expiration date?
I use Microsoft Works still (my fiancee constantly pokes fun at me for this), but really any reminder app you have on your computer or phone will work. Since Thursday is grocery shopping day for me, I set the reminder for the last Thursday closest to the expiration date of the coupon. Bingo! A little reminder will pop up on my computer as I cruise Pinterest for recipes and I’ll remember to use the coupon.
How else do Homies out there organize their coupons?
