    Hey,

    So how it works for us is i collect,order and match the coupons and my husband goes out and redeems the coupons for me.Mainly because up until this month i did not have a job and never went out and he works across the street from a walmart,superstore and would just do my couponing for me before coming home.Normally i would show him the stack of coupons and tell him okay these coupons use at Walmart and these ones use them at Superstore and he would sometimes call me up and be like "what coupons do you want me to use at Walmart again?"

    So i came up with this! i label envelopes with stores names on them and then put the coupons i want him to use only at that store inside the envelope.This saves me from having to remind him on the phone 100 times as all he has to do is open up the Walmart envelope and know those are the only coupons and items he needs to buy at Walmart

    Yes, you need to be organized if your dh is going to help you. You have got a gem!
    One of the rare times that I sent my dh to the store with a couple of coupons, he said to the
    cashier as he handed her the coupons, " I am an extreme couponer in training!"
    Gotta love them.

    Love it! My husband loves using coupons, I can send him out and has no issues. He actually looks at the tear pads at IGA for me, LOL.

    If this might make it easier, if you give him flyers he can get everything at one store - price match.

    Mine uses coupons but if I was to even give him a stack like that, I'd get THE look.
    THE "You-are-such-a-crazy-coupon-woman" look.

    I changed my system! after the envelopes came home all crushed and tattered i decided to label ziploc bags with store names.This way they come home still reusable.

    Too Funny I do this as well. I buy the cheaper envelopes from Dollar Store and go one step further then you
    I write the store name at the top of the envelope, item, price, coupon amount subtract and Volia. The price he will be paying for the item underlined. I usually do the couponing but found this works well when he goes. He actually told me it works great. Found out 2 days ago he has been just handing the envelope to the poor cashier. LOL. Gotta love em
    He even had one mention I don't think this is right because these 2 items are Free. He said, "The wife has been doing this since birth so I know she is right". She laughingly put it through. I didn't think he was handing it to the cashiers.....Jezz.....men...
