Oh, I hope I win this one!!! I usually spend about 2 hours a week couponing. It's just me and the hubby, so I only hit up the grocery store every other week except to stop and get milk and other essentials. I also go to CVS every Sunday, but so many wonderful bloggers (such as yourself!) make this very easy to prep.

Katie said...

I love, love, love your binder! I told my husband that I was now working a part-time job now that I am couponing. It seems like I put a huge amount of time into it, but the end result is so fulfilling!!

I spend a couple of hours a week couponing. It really helps save us a lot of money!

Hi, I spend a good chunk of Monday on getting ready for my shopping trip on Tuesday. I live about an hour away from Target, Walgreens and Kroger, so if I travel I can also hit CVS and Walmart. It makes for a long 2 days, but then I just keep up with the blogs the rest of the week.

Thanks

Jenan said...

With 2 part time jobs, 2 kids with one in school 2days then we do 2 days of school at home. I spend close to 4- 6 hrs all from start to finish. Great results though all worth it. Thanks for all the info you give. I could not do it without it.

Not enough! I started out super strong about a year ago and have lost momentum (though, I think this would spark the interest, again - that and the fact that we actually ran out of toothpaste last night!!) :) p.s. I found your blog through a gal that I met at Target that goes to your church.

Kayla's Korner said...

I am new to this whole coupon game, but with a growing family (Six of us) we can use all the help we can get. I spend about 1-2 hours per week. Hope I win!

Short On Cents said...

An hour a day for 5 days wow I'm addicted I know, but I cannot stop sperrysad at yahoo dot com

Missy said...

I spend 2-4 hours a week clipping coupons and matching up deals for various stores. Wish I would have started couponing years ago!

ahanddancer said...

Currently I only have an hour or so a week to spend on couponing because I have a full time job with a long commute. However, I am looking forward to retirement soon and hope to have more time. Thinking of living on a fixed income is a little scary, so I'm looking forward to couponing in order to supplement our retirement income. Every little bit helps!

Tammy said...

I spend at least 1 hour. Love to win this one.

Jennifer said...

Hey! I spend about an hour or two cutting coupons and organizing them each week. Then at the end of the month I have my boy's go thru my coupons to remove the expired one's. Those I put in a baggie to give to the girl across the street who gives them to her military friend. :) It probably takes me about an hour to plan and get ready for a grocery trip. I do go to CVS and Walgreen's but only when I see good deals. I have quite the stockpile now so I try to go with great deals only. LOL

I'm very interested in the binder method of organizing. Right now I use a holder that is in sections. It's not bad, but it does take extra time to find the coupons at the store. Especially when something is out or I need to change my gameplan on the spot. :)

Thanks!

Jennifer said...

Woo Hoo! I'm a new fan on Facebook! Thanks~

Carolina said...

I spend hours cutting 6-8 papers, and another few hours organizing them into my binder that is shot and tearing apart, then just a few more to pull the coupons out that know I am going to use by browsing the awesome blogs like yours, ect.

Thanks Carolina Salazar

Lauren said...

I started couponing about 3 months ago after meeting your husband and sister at Kroger. I don't have much time to coupon as I am a mother of a 20-month old and 1-month old, a full time student online, and I have both a full-time job and a part-time job. Right now, I still on maternity leave, so I am able to check your blog regularly during the week. Needless to say, I haven't had time to start my own binder, so this would really help me get on track!

sohpiasmom said...

I only spend a little time a week, but I have nothing like this and I think it will really help me!! Thanks!

Spencer and Shay said...

I'm still learning how to do couponing, so I take about 3 hours a week. Your blog and others have been super helpful!

Shay

cora said...

I cant even count,I spend hours on the den floor sorting and searching!!! going to night school and having a 6yr old I am always rummaging through coupons over and over again knowing I have a coupon for a sale item but not knowing where I saw it! I have a close relative that delivers the paper so I get 30 of each insert every Sunday and I dont know where to start when it comes to organizing I would love to have this it would save me hours and I mean hours each weeks so I would have more time w/ my daughter!!1

Natalie Putnam said...

Oh pick me. I would love to have this. I actually started couponing 2 weeks ago and love it. I am still trying to get organized and this would really help.

wendy said...

I spend a least an hour a day and 2on Sunday! .. even my almost 4 yr old daughter likes to pretend to clip coupons...it's cute she even puts them in her purse and everything.

Carol said...

I so need this coupon binder. It takes me at least 2 hours each week to get organized for the weekly shopping trip. My system is just not working. Thanks!

Amy said...

I spend about 2 hours each week couponing and matching up sales.

Julie said...

I also have a link to your blog on my blog. Does that count? ;)

Debko said...

I work a full time job and am also a part time student. But I find enough time during the week to get my coupon shopping in. I started last August and have saved so much money. Couponing if fantastic.

Thanks for all that you do for us.

Priya said...

Maria said...

A fellow mommy at my church playgroup got me started on couponing. She motivated me when I heard just how much she saves every week on groceries and toiletries. I spend around 2 hours a week working on coupons and comparison ads. Your website also helps a lot. Thanks for all of your great info.

i probably spen 1/2 an hour each day checking blogs like yours. That doesn't include the time spent at the store- but I am super prepared once I get to the store...I hope I win this! I just got 25 coupon inserts in the mail!

123 checkoutourfamily said...

Shasta showed me her cool coupon binder she got from you. I'm crossing my fingers you pick my entry.

Well, I use to spend a lot of time couponing and clipping but now that I'm getting better, I'd say it's probably 2-3 hours.

I started using the grocery game and I really like it.I also look at your blog to see what other deals are happening. littletex55@hotmail.com

I spend quite a bit of time couponing, but I feel like I more than make my hourly rate back in savings. Fingers are crossed for the binder! I am in serious need!

Lisa said...

I am new to your site and saving all coupons. I have spent a couple of hours a week, but I think I will end up spending more then that. Thanks for the chance to win the coupon binder.

Tracey said...

I spend about one hour a day because I am just learning. I share what I know with others so it feels like I am always talking about coupons. If I win I plan to give the binder to my mom. She and my dad are on a fixed income and the savings really help them.

Sheri said...

What a great idea! I spend too much time flipping through my stacks at the store. I think I spend 2-3 hours a week printing and clipping coupons. But totally worth it.

Electra said...

I spend about an hour a day couponing, if I'm lucky and the baby gives me that time! I find it relaxing to have a little time to sit down and do something quiet! I'd love to have this binder, it would make finding things so much easier.

Tracy said...

I spend a lot of time couponing, at least an hour each day. However, I feel like I need to spend a lot more time at it. I think that I really embarrassed my son when I worked on filing my coupons while watching him at basketball practice, but you've got to do what you've got to do.

I love your binder system! I spend about an hour a week scanning ads and clipping coupons and my trips to the store take 20 min. or so longer than they used to as I try to match up sales and coupons. I have only been doing this for a couple of months and I still have a lot to learn!

I have a baby, so I don't have too much time for couponing. I go through the Sunday flyers to see what the sales are, and clip my Sunday coupons and my mom's leftover coupons, and that's about it. Well, and I read your blog! An organization system would help me a lot!

I would like to spend less time couponing, but right now all my coupons are in an envelope. It takes FOREVER to get through the store!

Mary said...

I started couponing about three weeks ago and I have now started dreaming about coupons. The numbers just roll around in my head all day and all night. Creepy, I know but I am really excited about my new hobby. I honestly cannot put a number on the hours I have spent couponing.

tlawrence said...

I spend all total about 2 hours a week clipping & sorting my coupons. It takes time, but is soooooo worth it when you see your total bill start to shrinking when at the checkout!!! I could use a new coupon binder - mine is on it's last leg. HOPE I WIN!!!!!
Thanks, Tammy gordonfan@embarqmail.com

The Comptons said...

I really could use this coupon binder! If my coupons were more organized, I could save even more money! I spend a couple of hours a week couponing. I don't live in a metro area with all the big chain stores, but I try to do the best I can with what I have! Enjoy your blog so much!

Stephanie said...

I'm curious about the binder system. I've been couponing for a few years now & the best method I've come up with is a shoe box with labeled envelopes. I spend 2-3 hours a week organizing & planning shopping trips. I call my Friday and/or Saturday night working moms entertainment :)

Just saw your comment on FB. No, I am not getting tired of this giveaway! Thanks for the reminder! I usually spend about an hour a day Tuesday - Thursday and a couple hours one day a weekend. I am trying hard to balance couponing with everything else as it can take over your life if you let it.

Laurie C. said...

I am currently spending about two hours a week couponing. I'm still trying to find the organizational method that works for me. Winning this binder would give me the perfect reason to try out the binder method. :)

Kacey said...

I need that binder! I am a couponing newbie so sometimes I spend a few hours a week and other weeks I feel so overwhelmed, I go to wal-mart with NO coupons (gasp!)

Bonus entry for me! I shared the giveaway on facebook a few minutes ago! And no status change on the gobbs of time I spend on my favorite sport- couponing! And now that I have 3 shelf reliance shelves, I am even more eager to aquire cheap and free canned goods!

Simonne said...

I NEED a way to minimize my coupon organizing time. I'm using an accordian file folder right now and so go through each category every week to plan my shopping trips. Opening the binder would be so much easier! I just can't find the extra minutes to switch methods- full time working mom of two sweet boys and an incredible husband... who wants to spend any more minutes away from them than I already do? This would be a great help :)

The team said...

I spend about 2 hours a week cutting and organzing my coupons, then planning my shopping trips. When I first started couponing, I was very overwhelmed at all the deals and how long it took me to sort through everything. I've trimmed my way of doing things though and only go for the deals my family will use!

The Robinsons said...

I usually spend about 2-3 hours a week cutting, filing and organizing my coupons. I put my girls to work helping me cut them while I file them. They grumble continuously about helping me but whenever sunday comes around, they dig through the papers to get the coupons ready for me.

Denise Nechvatal (Cody) said...

I usually spend about an hour or two couponing a week. But now I have to start over! In the last week I somehow lost my coupon system. I must have lost it at a store. I have called and asked them to look in their lost and found and nobody has it. So, when I saw you were giving this away I thought this would sure be awesome to win. Thanks. Denise in WI

Hi! I spend wayy to much time couponing because I have to go shopping a little bit every day to get good deals (I don't have a car and have to go to stores near my workplace). I tried the method of keeping whole inserts but that didn't work for me. I just had huge stacks of paper everywhere! Hopefully, with a binder I can start to do couponing correctly!

Linda said...

I am new to this and spend about an hour a day reading blogs, then maybe 2 hours once a week getting my shopping list and coupons in order. But with nine children in the home it is a wonder I can find the time. Saving each week is exciting so it keeps me motivated. The last 3 weeks, I have fed my family of 11 on last than $100 each week whoo hoo. Sadly my envelops keep getting smushed in my diaper bag so I really could use a binder. thanks for the chance.

I think I'll investigate this method even if I don't win. I hate shuffling through coupons at the store!
