WFMW: Grocery/Coupon Lists

This is really my first WFMW tip... but it's been working great for me. One of my "improvement areas" (notice, not resolutions) for 2008 was to better with our weekly grocery bill. And thanks to the Grocery Game, we have been doing better. But one of my biggest frustrations has always been keeping my list organized with my coupons... and remembering to dig ALL the coupons out of the bottom of my purse. But I have found a solution. I had leftover envelopes from Christmas cards this year, so I have been using the envelopes to write my grocery list and then neatly tucking the coupons right in the envelope! I figure when the envelopes run out I'll have to buy some cheap ones at the store, but if it saves $$ in the long run, I'm all for it!

GREAT idea w/the envelopes! I have a little expandable organizer thingy but it doesnt always cut it. I think I'll give your idea a whirl!

BTW, I have been wondering about The Grocery Game. Would you mind dropping me a note and sharing your experience when you have time?

I am always looking for ways to save cashola too...every little bit helps!
