Coupon Organization: Clean Out Your Binder {Sept 1}

September 1, 2012 15 Comments | Disclosure

Is Your Binder Feeling… UGH!!!???

Organization is KEY to couponing! If you aren’t organized, couponing can get frustrating and even come to a halt! Also, if you don’t clean out your binder – you’ll get to the point where you can’t close it (and then it’s a pain to carry around)!


One of the things that I love about the clip-LESS coupon organization system is that it’s easy to pull out expired coupons. Remember that you can always donate expired coupons to the Overseas Coupon Program!

Here is a list & this is how you use it…

  1. This is a list of  all the  inserts that still have unexpired coupons.   If the insert isn’t listed, that means there are no valid coupons in it.
  2. The date in blue is the Sunday that the insert came out.
  3. Underneath each date are unexpired coupons (as well as their expiration date)
  4. Personally, if I know with out a doubt that I will NOT use that coupon, I’ll pull the entire insert to make room in my binder. OR…
  5. You may want to just clip out the few remaining coupons and pull the rest of the insert.
  6. If you have any inserts older than March 4, 2012, you don’t need them any more!

post each month!

As you scroll down, you’ll be able to see the newer inserts still have many coupons available.

Is this useful?  Do you want me to do this every month?

Please leave a comment if you are a clip-less coupon organizer and have an idea for making this easier to read!


  1. I cut my coupons but was thinking of switching to clipless. Thank you for this article. It has been very helpful.

  2. This is EXTREMELY helpful, thank you! In your header, you said “If you have any inserts older than March 4, 2011, you don’t need them any more!”, but I’m thinking you meant March 4, 2012? Just want to be sure before I start getting rid of them. Thanks again 🙂

  3. I still use it all the time!

    Thank you, I always clean out my coupons per this info!
    On another subject – can you please tell me how I can access the price point guide? I am subscribed to your daily newsletter and I noticed there is a link at the bottom of the email for the price point guide but it only takes me to the page where you can subscribe, not to the actual guide… What am I doing wrong? Thanks!

  6. Thanks for the list! So helpful and I always use it every time you post it!

  7. How do I print the Price Point Guide. Can’t find anything to click on.

  8. LOVE this guide! 🙂 Thank you for posting.

  9. Couldn’t figure out where the Like was, so I wanted to say that I do like the “clear out your binder” thing. Besides, it reminded me it’s time to get more Colace for my daughter!

  10. Thank you so much! This is WONDERFUL!!!!!!

  11. I still use this each month and LOVE it! Thank you. 🙂

  12. Please keep doing this. It is great!
