Time to Get Organized: Clean Out Your Coupon Binder! {August 15}

August 15, 2012 6 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)!

READY TO GET ORGANIZED??

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 August 7, 2011, you don’t need them any more!

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 use this system and I love it! I have a file cabinet with hanging folders to store them in. Each folder has a tab. I use an erasable marker to mark the insert dates on them and then file them away along with each weeks printable list! When it’s time to throw an insert out, I just toss them, erase my date and then move the folder to the back for the next new insert! Works like a charm for me!

  2. When explaining you mention “If you have any inserts older than August 7, 2011, you don’t need them any more!” but when I pull the list, the oldest one is 3/4/12 for Colace Capsules.

    Which is correct? I just want to make sure I don’t throw anything away I need.
    Thanks much, really appreciate this list.

  3. Any help on the above comment would be great! Anyone?
