I need some suggestions here. I have been asked by my local food pantry /shelter to help teach them about coupons so they can get the maximum out of their donation money to help others in our community.
They will be asking for donations of coupon inserts from the main church who supports them.
When people ask me about how to get started using coupons ( I have a huge binder that often attracts alot of attention -so I get asked this quite often ) I ussually tell them I think the insert filing system is the easiest system to start with and I explain how the print outs from this site works etc.
I personally use both the binder system and the file system to catch unexpected sales.
This case - though will be different .because there will be several people using whatever we system we decide to use ..
So here's what I am thinking about doing for them . I will set up a big binder for them, but instead of having everything filed by catagory. I will have it set up by insert . That way all they have to do is come here print the list for whatever store they want to use . I'll have them set up with store catagories at the front of the binder( Kroger,Publix, etc ) . I am going to volunteer to keep thier system - whatever it is - filed and up to date on a regular basis.
If any of you have any other suggestions or different ideas , I'm open to them. I just hate to go over there and see thier shelves empty when the work they do is so valuable to this community.
