Couponing can be very overwhelming and the number one reason for that is generally the way that you pick to organize your coupons.  So we are going to spend a few days going over a few options to organize things more efficiently and cut down on your time spent clipping and saving.

Watch below to learn about how to organize by not cutting coupons!  (This is what I do and spend maybe 30 minutes getting ready for a shopping trip).

This video is only part one and I know that many of you are die hard fanatics for more intense methods… don’t worry we are covering that in the next video coming Monday.

A few tips to make the file system work even better:

  • Print the weekly insert variation list for your area and put that list in each pocket with that weeks inserts.  Now you can quickly see if you really got that coupon.
  • If you need something that is not on sale, use the coupon database to find any coupons. (The database will even work on your  phone in a store!)
  • You only need to keep inserts for about 12 weeks. If there are any good coupons still in that inserts cut that one coupon rather than holding onto an insert for years.

Do you organize your coupons using the file system?
Have any more tips that have made it work even better for you??
