    I was so prepared for this weekend's great deals! Metro! Loblaws! No Frills! I was determined to hit them all...so last night I spent a good hour going through my coupons, making my lists, organizing them so I didn't have to rummage through my binder at the store...

    In all that preparation, I didn't even think about what would happen next!

    I had put post-its on each paper-clipped group of coupons for each store...well when I got to Loblaws this AM I went to give them my coupons and the cottonelle (insert, $1) the post-it had taken off the expiry date! They wouldn't accept it!!!

    So sad...those cottonelle coupons are so valuable, darn it!

    Beware the post-it all you organizers!

    What happened?
    Open an account with Tangerine (ING) using my ORANGE KEY...29564343S1. When you open an account and deposit 100.00 you and I will both receive $25.00. Wait that's not all.....I will also send you 15.00 worth of coupons from your wishlist as a way of saying thanks.

    I bought some "zipper" bags from the $ store from the craft section. They're smaller than the sandwich bags and are perfect for coupons. There are a lot in the package and only cost $1.00.
    I also use them to store craft materials.

    I love the little coupon binders they have a dollarama.
    It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness.

    I love the coupon binders that fit in my purse too!!! But the problem is I wanted to distinguish which coupons were for what store...maybe I could write with permanent marker on the separators in the binders...

    anyways I am glad it isn't just me that has made this mistake

    THANKS all!
