Although I do not have ADHD, I struggle with organization. When I create systems to help me organize, I like to keep them as simple as possible. When I prepare to go food shopping:
- I clean out the fridge, freezer, and cabinets, and see what I have left.
- I prepare a menu, trying to use many of the items that I still have at the house.
- I write my list based on my menu.
This simple system has helped me to save time, reduce waste (save money), and for the most part get the items that I need for the week. What this system does not include is looking at circulars or clipping coupons. I will look at a circular or use a coupon from time to time, but for the most part coupons seem to me like a drag on a system that works for me. Coupons seem to be making a comeback, and I should probably think about incorporating them into my system. I am still skeptical about how much money I can save with them, but I would really like to hear how other people who struggle with organization are saving money with coupons.
