..I find that mentally I can handle the envelope of coupons I keep, but it seems like the possibilities are too vast to manage the online coupons - I forget about them, etc. I'm wondering if anyone uses online coupons and if so what your system for using them is?

Do you mean like coupon codes for online ordering or the kinds of coupons that you obtain online but print out for use in stores?

If it's the former, I don't keep track. I just use sites like Flamingoworld.com or fishingfordeals.com to handle them for me. They're searchable and have the up-to-the-minute codes.

If it's the latter, I try to print as I see them and file with my usual coupons in my little file box. One of my local markets (Krogers) no longer accepts coupons printed at home for reasons of "fraud". I don't see how it's different if my, say, Stonyfield Farms coupon was printed at home versus printed in my local paper but Kroger won't take it - even if it has a UPC that scans correctly. Do figure.

..Oops, I meant the ones for use in stores. I have seen some (like those I get for being a green guide subscriber) which will only let me print htem once, but they expire very quickly, so of course I would only want to print them when I'm going to use them, but I can't remember they existed to begin with when I do go to use the product in question.
