Grocery List Template

I had a friend of mine offer to help me out this week and do some grocery shopping for me, WHAT A BLESSING!! I have had a very tiring week and am fine on groceries except for some produce and a few necessities to carry me through next week so she's lucky, it'll be an easy one for her!

It is very helpful to have a grocery list breakdown and I've tried a few different things in the past. If I have a basic, easy trip I use this template. If I'm heading out for a big trip with the kids, which is typical, I've used index cards broken down by category that way Adrianna gets to help me out too!

If you like the Grocery Template, check out some of Organizing Junkie's other templates here.

Organizing your Coupons and Inserts

So many of you have asked me how I organize my coupons and my inserts. I've tried MANY differents ways from Binders, to the little plastic bill organizers with the rubber band (I outgrew that one!), to a couple different coupon boxes and this is what has worked for me. I got both ideas from Money Saving Mom and I heart CVS. You can tweek them a little, not break down the catergories as much, whatever works for you! :o)

Coupon Box
(I ALWAYS keep this in my car and never enter a grocery store, Target or Walmart without it! You NEVER know when you will see a clearance item that you already have a coupon for to make it an even BETTER deal!)

You will need: A shoe box or something similiar in size, small envelopes, and index cards

I have a cute little box that I've filled with envelopes, labeled by catergories and subcategories.
The individual envelopes were made by using small letter envelopes (No. 6 3/4 - 3 5/8 x 6 1/2 in.), cutting the flaps off, and stapling an index card standing up inside.

The envelopes are organized alphabetically with the main categories and then multiple envelopes for each main category. Something like this:

Baby - diapers

Bags -
foil, plastic wrap

And so on. Here are the rest of the categories along with some of what are in the categories and the separate envelopes in parentheses: I bolded the categories which you can either highlight the envelope, use a different color index card (that's what I do) or write it in a different color marker.

Baking (mixes, oil/sugar)
Batteries, film
Canned (meat, soup, vegetables, fruit)
Cereal (envelopes for each brand)
Cleaner (all purpose, bathroom, dish detergent, disinfectant, laundry, furniture polish, floor, glass)
Dairy (beverage, cheese, sour cream/cream cheese/butter, snacks, yogurt)
Frozen (beverage, bread, ice cream, meat, snacks, vegetables/fruit/potatoes)
Health Food
Hygiene (band-aids, deodorant, face, feminine, hair, lotion, medicine/vitamins, shaving, soap)
Jelly, Peanut Butter
Office Supplies
Paper Products (facial tissue, cups/plates, toilet tissue, towels/napkins)
Salad Dressing

I put restaurant coupons, other coupons for non-grocery stores, rebate forms, and any receipts on one side of the box. On the other side, I'll put coupons which need to be organized. The front of the box has envelopes for each store I shop at.

When I make out my grocery lists for each store, I put the coupons I'll be using in these envelopes, along with the lists for the store. I always bring a calculator and a pen in my box, too.

And now for the weekly inserts. I usually cut out the ones that I use frequently or have read that there will be a good deal on in the upcoming week and file the rest away in my file cabinet. You can also use a file box for this too!

Another FREE Halmark Card!

Here are the easy steps to follow to get another free card, courtesy of Freebies 4 Mom:

1. Select your Hallmark paper folded 5x7 card (remember that you can select any paper or photo card, not just the ones featured)

2. Personalize the text/photos on the front, inside, and back of the card

3. Sign-in to your Hallmark account (or create one for free)

3. Mail it directly to your recipient so that Hallmark pays for that stamp if you'd be mailing it anyways. Select "I want Hallmark to mail this card for me" and enter your recipient's address.

Choose your arrival date (soonest is May 6) and then add the card to your shopping basket.

5. Enter Code: ICTCARD. The code is not case-sensitive. The total cost without the promotion card would have been $3.91
. The entire $3.91 will be deducted on the order screen. Your cost - FREE!

6. Check out and "Submit Order Now". You will not be asked for any billing information because your total was $0.00.

Please note that you do need to sign-in or create a free Hallmark account in order to order your card.
