    please help with plural in phrases

    Hello all,
    I am putting together a website and was hoping for some help.
    I am setting up my categories and they are as follows
    Arts & Crafts
    Automobiles & Parts
    Baby & Children
    Beauty & Fragrance
    Books & Magazines
    Business & Productivity
    Clothing & Apparel
    Collectibles
    College & Learning
    Computers & Printers
    Consumer Electronics
    DVDs & Movies
    Food & Drink
    Gifts & Flowers
    Health & Wellness
    Home & Garden
    Internet Service Provider
    Jewelry & Watches
    Shoes & Accessories
    Sports & Fitness
    Telephone & Television
    Tickets & Events
    Toys & Hobbies
    Vacations & Travel
    Video Games
    Web Hosting & Design
    now This site is all about coupon codes so my intent is to have the category name followed by coupon codes so for example
    Arts & Crafts coupon codes
    Automobiles & Parts coupon codes
    Baby & Children coupon codes
    Beauty & Fragrance coupon codes

    now is this proper english or should it be
    Art & Craft coupon codes
    Automobile & Parts coupon codes
    Baby & Child coupon codes
    Beauty & Fragrance coupon codes

    or something else ?
    I haveread many papers on plurals but none of them include this type of usage

    Please Help

    Welcome to the forums.

    It is not really relevant whether your titles are singular or plural. They are titles of categories so can be used as you have them; the coupon codes presumably refer to the category group.
