I am definitely trying something new this month. I’ve read about so many couponers who don’t clip coupons. They keep them arranged by insert and just cut out the ones they need. Honestly, I can’t stand clipping coupons, so I absolutely envy these couponers, but I have my doubts. However, I’m putting it to the test…
Challenge: No Clipping for 1 Month!
My oldest daughter (4 1/2 years old) picked out a rather bold coral pink 3-ring binder and with the help of clear 3-ring inserts, I’ve organized this weeks coupon inserts (plus a few older inserts I rescued from my Mother-in-Law’s home). I simply wrote the date I received the insert, along with the expiration date of the last coupon to expire within the insert, so I know when I can definitely get rid of it completely.
We’ll see how it goes….
For those of you who don’t clip, how do you find the coupons you need when you locate a great sale or clearance item in store? Do you carry a list or just search through inserts? Or do you just never impulse buy? Any other helpful tips? I could really use the tips, since this method will cut some serious time out of my couponing and I’d love to make it work for me!
