Don't you just LOVE those plastic storage bins that come out in different colors for each holiday? I prefer the translucent ones so I can see what's inside. I use them for my seasonal decor. They stack well and keep everything neat and clean.
When writing a list of items needed at the grocery store put items in order of how they are arranged in the store. For example, usually the produce is the first thing you shop for (put veggies and fruits at the top of the list) and frozen items are the last (put ice cream and frozen pizza at the bottom). Doing this will speed up your next trip to the grocery store.
Get a coupon organizer. Sort coupons within each category (i.e., cereal, beverages) by date (those that expire first in the front). Each time you are planning a trip to the grocery store, thumb through you coupon organizer, pulling coupons that you plan to use during the trip and tossing expired coupons.
