Spike does that. We both keep an eye out for coupons. And we will cut them out if we think the other may want it or use it before it expires.

My app of choice is Paprika. I have in on my Mac, iphone, and ipad. I can easily download recipes from the internet and synchronize between all 3 devices. If I change one, the other two reflect the change instantly!

What do you guys do? Carefully open your mail and save the envelopes in a drawer for shopping lists?

I have a map of the store I shop in. Aisle by aisle. So when I go into my shopping list in my computer, I remove what I don't want this month, from last month's shopping, and add what I do need. I take aisles one through 12 and Spike takes the rest of the aisles.

Spike does all my produce and knows exactly what I want. Tomatoes on a vine. He knows no more than 4 tomatoes. Only P.E.I. or Maine potatoes. Etc. His list is on a separate page. Even though I use the scooter for handicap, the dang store is just too big. I get very tired shopping. And besides, the basket on the scooter is too small for all I buy.

Who gets envelopes any more, aside from junk mail that goes straight into the recycle bin? Personal mail, and most other service provider communications, financial statements, etc., are all electronic for us.

After the 15th of the month, I don't even bother to check my mailbox more than once a week. Mostly clothing catalogs that I don't order from.
