A bit of history behind this program.

   My wife Laurie Ann, saves our family thousands of dollars on groceries per year couponing. She looked high and low for a good desktop software program to help her track and manage coupons and setup shopping list to make it less time consuming. She downloaded this free spreadsheet and that free spreadsheet and found herself spending more time spread sheeting than couponing. After many failed attempts with spreadsheets, she ask me, since I'm a programmer by trade to develop her one. So I said yes and designed and developed this coupon tracker and shopping list program to her requirements and specifications. Not knowing at that time, that I would spend many hours walking the store aisles as she struggled thumbing through coupons trying to match them up and figure out how many jars of jelly she could buy for the best deal. Does that sound familiar?

What she wanted, that became the main features...

  • She wanted a simple program to catalog her coupons and be able to easily match them up with product items when creating shopping list for each store.
  • She wanted the program to remember products and coupons so she would not have to re-type them once she added them.
  • She wanted to click a button so the program would update coupon counts (inventory) and clear a certain shopping list for her.
  • She wanted to have multiple shopping list going on at the same time.
  • She wanted the shopping list print-out to contain the basic information about each product and coupons that go with that item, so she could easily pick up 3 jars of jelly and mark it and move on.
  • She also wanted the shopping list print-out to include the ball-park values of the total savings and costs to expect before hitting that checkout line.
  • She does not want to see expired coupons when creating shopping list, but she does not want them to be deleted automatically either, she wanted to choose when to delete them.
  • She wanted to be able to manage her products, coupons, shopping list, stores, categories and name brands with easy to use file maintenance type programs. So she could add/edit and delete anything she wanted.
  • She wanted the shopping list process to work much like an order entry type program, so she could double click products and coupons to create each shopping list line item without typing so much.
  • She wanted to be able to stack up to three coupons per line item when creating her shopping list. She also wanted the program to do all the calculations and figure out what store options are available for each coupon like stacking, double, buy one get one free etc... etc... 

With more than 20 years developing custom business software I knew the answer was not a spreadsheet but rather a database application. So that's what we designed and developed, a coupon tracker and shopping list database application.

Database...

This Database Application is made up of six (6) basic tables...

  • Stores Table - Setup custom stores with basic coupon options.
  • Category Table - Setup custom categories like Meats, Produce, Frozen Foods etc.. etc..
  • Name Brands Table - Setup custom name brands (primary match key).
  • Products Table - Setup and maintain custom product items.
  • Coupons Table - Setup and maintain custom coupons.
  • Shopping List Table - Create shopping list for any store.

Desktop Application...

This Coupon Tracker software product is a Microsoft Windows compatible Stand Alone Desktop .NET application that is totally installed on your hard drive and system. It is NOT a web-based application that requires an internet connection to run as many other coupon tracker programs. Although it is helpful to have an internet connection for the support page to run while working in the coupon tracker program.

Basic Idea...

    One of the challenges for this coupon tracker program was how do you match products and coupons together when creating your shopping list while also making it simple and easy to use. After all the goal here is to be able to setup your shopping list to make the shopping experience less time consuming and make sure you don't miss the best deals or forget to use one or more coupons.

   The answer is to use Name Brands as the primary match key and use Descriptions (product or coupon) as the Secondary match key. When a user is adding products, coupons or adding new shopping list line items; allow them to select the Name Brand from a Pull-Down Menu rather than re-typing it each time.

Coupon Tracker match key

 This keeps that key consistent throughout the products, coupon and shopping list tables. The description can then narrow the search down as needed during each process.  I also setup the Categories table so it would also be an Pull-Down Menu, keeping in mind that these tables are customizable. It works, once you setup your Name Brands and products its very simple and easy to maintain your coupons and shopping list. To see for yourself download this unique coupon tracker program and try it out for 14 days with no obligation. It comes with hundreds of name brands and products already loaded.
