Not sure where to put this.

I was wondering if anyone uses EN for couponing? I have just started using EN to keep track of things I want to buy but I was wondering if there was a way to keep track of the coupons that I have?

Any input would be great.

Thanks

Shannon

From http://moneysavingmo...-couponing.html :

""When I began using a smart phone, I discovered a site called Evernote.com that allows me to edit documents and sync them among multiple devices (computer, phone, tablet, etc.). ­I created a document entitled “Coupon Inventory” and divided it into the same categories as my coupon organizer. Under each heading, I keep a bulleted list of each coupon I have, when it expires, and whether or not I have multiples.
In addition, I created a category for e-coupons, since I tend to forget what I have loaded onto my shopper cards. This also saves me paper, because I used to print out a list of my e-coupons each time I went to the store.

Once a week or so, when I’m organizing my physical coupons, I also pull up my document and make sure I have deleted any coupons that have been used or have expired, and I add any coupons I have recently clipped or printed. When I pull it up on my phone, the document looks like this:

Using this technology, it is so easy to view my coupon inventory even in the middle of the grocery store! If I see a coupon listed under a given category, I know that I can flip to that tab in my coupon organizer and find it there waiting for me to use. This has really helped me capitalize on deals I hadn’t known about ahead of time or hadn’t planned on using."

I use Evernote for coupons, but only ones for restaurants/take away. I don't use grocery coupons often. And if I used them a lot, I think it would be too time consuming (for me) to inventory them (and keep the inventory up to date) in Evernote.
I'm not affiliated with Evernote. Evernote is an integral part of my life.

I wonder if this might not be a better topic fit with the Organization Lifestyle Forum?

I am a new Evernote user but I would suggest using an app specifically designed for coupons if you are serious about couponing. I use My Coupons. I use Evernote for my shopping lists so that I have a record of which coupons I have used and I can keep track of prices and do price matching.

Wow! That's a really involved way to keep coupons! I can't say I've used Evernote for that, because (to me) it feels like a lot of work to have the physical file + an electronic one. I do, however, keep a note of coupon sites and good deal sites.

This is an interesting thread!

I know I'm posting to a long ago thread, but jut in case someone does a search and happens upon this --

 

I don't use coupons enough to use a specific app for them.  My biggest problem is that I let so many expire before using them. (Happens mostly with coupons that are special or one-time things for something that I don't usually buy or do -- so I don't usually see it or carry it around with me or whatever.)

 

Now that EN has the reminder feature, I can scan in a coupon or (digitally) clip it, tag it, and set a reminder to go off before it expires.  Yay!
