The new 9/25 coupon insert lists are up and ready for you to print and organize!

Find them anytime if you hover over “Learn to be a fruGAL”, and then click on “Coupon Insert Lists“. Need to clean out your binder? Here is a list of inserts you can pull as of 9/1.

Not sure what I’m talking about? Tired of clipping coupons every week? Just click on “read more” and we’ll share a little secret with you…

 

You’re going to love our NO CLIP coupon organization system!

  1. Just print up these lists (links are below and are for all the coupons found in the Sunday coupon inserts).
  2. Slide the sheets in a sheet protector with your coupon inserts.
  3. Don’t clip your coupons until you’re ready to use them. You’ll often see me clipping in the aisle!
  4. Each list has the date of the last expired coupon noted, so you can quickly see when it’s time to donate that insert!

We currently have lists for:

Don’t forget that we’ve also created a list for all the coupons inside the All You Magazine!

Have you found that another city’s list works for your area? If so, we want to know! Just leave us a comment. :)

Lists will be up soon for Portland, Reno, Utah, San Diego, Denver, and Portland!  We are looking for an insert list writer for Pheonix, Az. if interested please email us at fabulesslyfrugal@gmail.com.

Thanks to all of our wonderful contributors for making these lists possible! Sophie, Heidi, Heather, Kayla, Amber, Tina, Suzy, Geraldine,  Nikki, Jen, Carrie, Angela, Anne, Margaret, Dana,  and Cassie!

  1. Holy Cow! This is my NEW BEST FRIEND!!!

  2. I love this for inserts, but I always get bogged down with internet printable coupons… how do you manage them??

    • I don’t do anything fancy… I just keep all of mine (uncut) in one of the sheet protectors. At the store you’ll find me thumbing through them to see if there are any I want to possibly use.

      Monica uses this system, but also the baseball card holder system – she cuts out the coupons she wants to remember to use, and then leaves the rest in the inserts/sheet protectors (she keeps every coupon of course!). So she still puts her printables in her baseball card holders organized by category. You can see her categories here: http://fabulesslyfrugal.com/2009/05/fabuless-coupon-tip-tuesday-binder.html

    • You could use a mini-photo album to organize your printable coupons. My friends do this and it works well! Then they just have the little mini photo album in their purse and you can flip through real quick to see what you have!

  3. This is GREAT!! LOVE it!! Thank you!!

  4. Michelle Predmore says:

    I’m curious if this binder goes shopping with you or do you always know what you’re buying before you go?

  5. I ALWAYS take my binder with me. I normally know what I am going to purchase ahead of time. However, you never know what you might find on clearance. For example, this weekend I found glad soy candles on clearance for $2.00 off. Thank goodness I had my coupon binder with me. I had several coupons for $1/2 soy candles from glade. I stocked up!

  6. I will be making the swith to the clipless system from the business card holder/mini binder system. I just have too many coupons and they continually fall out everywhere! I love the idea of a clipless system and think it’ll work for me!!

    • Completely know what you mean! Haha. I have 2 young children who want to attack my coupons. So this clipless will make it way easier! Can’t believe I didn’t think of this.

  7. Oh wow! This is SO AWESOME!! I am SO using this idea! Will you guys be getting Salem, OR soon?

    • I’m not sure what paper you get your inserts from but you might try the Portland list. I actually live in Vancouver, WA but use the Portland list because it matches up better than the Seattle one. I usually get at least 1 Oregonian and 1 Columbian newspaper a week. After I print up the list I go through it with all of my inserts to make sure the coupons match up. Usually they are pretty close and I just have to add or take away a few of the listed ones. It only takes a few minutes and much easier than clipping all of your coupons!

  8. I do what Monica does. I have my best coupons in baseball card slots, then the rest of them–uncut–in full sheet sleeves. I take my binder every time. As Holly said, I also often find unadvertised sales or clearance items. This week at my local Albertsons, they had a sale for Tostitos…but 2 for $5. I wasn’t interested until I was actually in the store. They had an unadvertised sale that included the chips, plus 2 mini pizzas for free, plus $1 off bananas. I had two coupons plus two extra doublers, so I got 2 bags of Tostitos, 2 pizzas, and 2 lbs of bananas for only $2.99. You can only score a great deal like that if you have your coupons!

  9. WI next please!

  10. What about coupons you cut and then get to the store and can’t use because product is gone? How do you put them back? Do you file some other way? Or does this not happen to anyone else but me? Ü

    • Michelle, with this system, I don’t cut my coupons until I’m in the store and the product is in my cart! This totally elminates the loose coupon issue! BUT if you do have loose coupons, I would just put them back in the sheet protector that it came from. :)

    • I like to clip my coupons before I get to the store to save on time, so I regularly run into this issue. Instead of using a binder, I use a small box with a handle and file coupons (by product type) that I clip but don’t use. I also keep printable coupons filed in it and ones that I get in the mail, etc. Also, when I clip coupons from my inserts I make sure and cross it off of my printed list, that way I can just look at my lists to see if I have a coupon without even pulling the inserts.

  11. It says enter my username and PW but there is no spot for a new user when I click on the link for Memphis.. Any suggestions?

  12. Would this maybe something we will learn about this weekend? I really want to switch to this. But I feel kind of stuck in the middle. My binder is so fat, I don’t see how I would fit inserts in. Maybe two binders? But then I feel like Walmart looks at me like, “Good GRAVY! Is she MOVING In to the store??” HAhaha. I just need to transition.

  13. I love this idea, the only problom is that I live in PA…we dont have any of the same stores, and none of the same coupons! If you have any website suggestions for New England/ PA I would love to know! Thanks for all the great tips!

  14. I notice that a lot of these say “compiled by fab reader ___” and wonder if you’re open to having another fab reader compile such a list for The Washington Post in DC. If so, you have a volunteer right here! I always run out on Saturday afternoon and get the early edition of the paper because I can’t wait to see the coupon inserts. I’d love to contribute to your awesome lists…

  15. I am not trying to be ungrateful, but as soon as I switched to the clipless method the Portland Oregon insert lists are taking weeks longer than the other papers. You guys do such a wonderful job!!! Maybe some of us can get you the info a little faster? Is there anything I can do to get it up faster? Thanks again.

    • I’ve been thinking the same thing, but didn’t want to upset anyone. I certainly wouldn’t want to do it, but feel like l’m missing out. I love this system, but it only works when I have the lists. Thank you for all of the work and effort everyone does around here!
