Dear Pinterest: I need folders

Let me just start with saying I don't understand couponing. We don't coupon. I've tried. For several weeks I bought newspapers, but I just never found enough coupons of things I actually bought or needed. Maybe someone can explain this whole couponing thing to me.

I have however managed to save plenty of money each week just by planning dinner menus and going to the store with a list. That and going alone (sorry Brian).  I am telling you, this alone has probably cut our grocery bill in half.

I don't mind cooking at all, I just hate coming up with ideas of what to make.  Pinterest has helped me change up our meals a bit. And Brian has gotten much better at letting me experiment on him.
My one complaint is looking through my food board on Pinterest and its so unorganized. Yes I could just make several new boards (drinks, soups, salads, dinners, appetizers...) but I'd really just like to see folders inside the board to organize it.

Somedays I much prefer to look at other blogs, which have their recipes organized.

I am really enjoying this blog, like pinterest, there are pictures to show you what the recipe is.
This blog has a lot of great recipes we have tried out, but you need to click the links to get to her pictures.

So PLEASE Pinterest, can I have folders to help organize my boards?

If anyone has any great recipes or tricks you would like to share for cutting costs on your grocery bills, Please share away!

  1. Southern Savers has videos and coupon lists you can use. It helped me tons. Basically you just save/date your coupon inserts and each week when Harris Teeter starts up their new savers, Jenny (the owner of the site) posts a list of coupons and "matchups" to sale items. Using the coupon when the item is on sale makes it even less expensive.
