Categories for Couponing

These are my Food Categories for Shopping and Couponing. Obviously won't need the Baby Category at my house.
DECIDED ON 50 catogories later on... after I got my coupon binder. This is a bit boring to have two lists of categories so I removed this one...

These will be necessary for organization. I've got a price list put together which I adapted from PYP. They are the pros and have done all the legwork. I added these categories so I could shop easier and find my soon to be organized coupons as well.
I looked at a ton of videos on YouTube about couponing and coupon binder organization, many of these were done by fellow PYP'ers and they were very helpful. My favorite vlogger was Money Dummy, she's a teacher and she explained coupon clipping and the coupon binder organization really well. (Click link above, to see if you are interested.)
This can be pretty simple of fairly complex. Lots of categories means it might take a lot more time to file, but less time to find what I want. I'm going to be picky about what coupons I clip and not let it give me anxiety that I may miss out when granola bars are free with the coupon. (I don't eat granola bars.)
Still watching for my Daily Herald subscription.... not here yet!

Do you need a processed food list? I think you are such a fabulous cook that you can just get rid of it altogether. Give it a thought.

The big plunge...
