Filing Coupon Inserts– Go Hybrid


This post may contain affiliate links. Please see Full Disclosure Policy for more information.

Filing Coupon Inserts I started couponing full out team binder. I quickly realized this method was way too time consuming. Breaking down coupon inserts every week into their individual clips? Pft! One problem though. Upon switching to the file box method, I didn't know what to do with Internet printables or the couple of coupons left when most of an insert had expired.   I also didn't like not having some coupons with me when I shopped.  I played around with the methods for awhile until I ended … [Read more...]

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see Full Disclosure Policy for more information.

What To Do with Loose Coupons What do you do with loose coupons? Since there was a two week break where we didn't get coupons in our newspaper, I found myself printing out a lot more coupons off the internet instead. Maybe it was withdrawal, maybe there were just actually better coupons online. Either way, one thing some of us couponers struggle with is how to keep up with printable coupons or coupons that you receive in the mail. You have a few different options. Option#1. For you loose … [Read more...]

Organizing Your Coupons & Inserts The world of couponing can be daunting.  Trust me, I am not a very organized person in my personal life and when I first began getting my coupons inserts, I just stared at them.  Inserts with hundreds of coupons?  How do I start?

How I Organize My Coupons I like to call my coupons organization the “Michele Method.” Simply because there are none like it.

I think the easiest way to explain it is to take you through sort of a “step-by-step” of what I do each week, and the weeks following, to keep my coupons both organized and under control. Before getting into that though, there are some things you need to know up front so my “steps” … [Read more...]

How I Organize Coupons We all organize our coupons a little differently and to tell the truth, my method has changed about four times already in the last 9 months.

After talking to other Wiz Kids, I decided to try a hybrid coupon organization method to save myself time. Breaking Down Coupon Inserts When I get my inserts I break them down … [Read more...]
