>This Mama wants to know…how do YOU store/organize your coupons?

>My current method is not working.  Not at all.  Which may well stem directly from the fact that I have every intention of clipping more coupons and then space out…and then kick myself for missing out on deals.  I blame my lack of sleep but its probably a little of that and a lot of laziness. I need to get back in my coupon groove, and since I’m in hyper-organizational mode anyway with the rest of our household stuff, I might as well include coupons also.  We do have a reliable printer (finally!) so I can print with confidence once again. 

Anyway, my eye is on the binder method.  But tell me.  What is your method?  Is it working?  Suggestions? Links??  Please share with this dis-organized coupon mama who loves her bargains.

There wasn’t a ton in my local store, Manchester, CT, but I’m sure there was more to be found in other stores.  I went specifically for the wood trains and got the 2 packs I’d hoped for- the rest was, like most Target trips, added fun.

For non kid/toy items I saw tons of Easter themed cake mixes and frostings, egg dye kits (some really funky ones!!), Cake/muffin tins, paper goods (plates, napkins, cups, kitchen towels, placemats, tablecloths, cupcake papers (I can’t for the life of me think of what they are called?? Baking cups?)…all 50% off.  And, of course, candy left was also 50% off.

I’m not the only one blogging about how fantastic these one size pocket diapers are…check it out.

>20% off EO Products!!

>We’ve tried a few hand santizing products from EO, in the wipes and spray form, and have loved both.  I love how convenient they are to tote around and also that they are natural and gentle to the skin.  If you want to check them out, head over to http://www.eoproducts.com/ and enter the code EOHANDS to get 20% off your order!!

We’ve tried the lavendar ones, I’m anxious to check out the lemon next.  Maybe the hand soap. 
I do make my own cleaners and LOVE adding my own essential oils- so I’m excited to save a little to stock my “cleaning ingredients” back up!!
I did notice their monthly special is 15% off of all shampoos, conditioners and hair treatments, will have to look and see if this 20% comes off in addition to that, what a great deal!

>Swimwear on sale @ Gymboree $12.99 and $14.99

>There is a swim sale at Gymboree going right now, girls’ suits are $14.99 and boy’s swim separates are $12.99 each.  Check it out here.  There are 20% off Gymboree coupons in several parenting magazines like Parents, Parenting, etc.  which have a one-time use code on the back.  This comes off the sale price, making for a pretty good deal on good quality bathing suits for your little ones. 

We will be spending most of our summer @ the little lake in town, on the beach, or in our pool in the yard.  Having 3 little ones means a lot of bathing suits for us, and an awful lot of sunscreen- this deal might not be the cheapest out there but I know the suits will hold up and can be passed down later.
