Coupon OrganizationHow to break down your inserts and clip “most used” coupons in less than 45 minutes a week. Make sure you have a big area to work on. If you have little kids, I highly recommend they are taking a nap. I’ve had a child mess up all of my piles of inserts and it was no fun putting them back together.

Coupon Organization Break down the Inserts: The first thing I do is break down the inserts. Sometimes you can open them up and separate down the middle, other times you may need to go through the whole insert page by page. Once I have one insert done, I make a pile for each individual insert. In my case, since I get a 10-pack from Insert Insanity, I will have 10 piles.

Coupon OrganizationStaple: Grab the top page of each pile and staple at the 4 corners so that the pages are aligned and don’t slide around when it’s time to file them. Continue doing that with each page until you have finish. (I have a recycle box on the floor to drop any pages that are all ads). I then put the pages back together in the format they arrived in. Ending up with 1 insert, 10 pages thick.

File: Then I just label a file folder with Smart Source, Red Plum or whatever source the inserts are. Then I flip through the insert and cut out any coupons we will most-likely use. Since they are stapled in sets of 10, one cut means all 10 are cut.

Then I simply add my cut coupons to my coupon organizer and I am done for the week and ready to go!
