We've got an amazing cash giveaway going on below! But first, the giveaway sponsor asked me to share my favorite coupon tip, so here it is!
You know I love coupons, right? You probably think that I spend hours and hours clipping and filing them, right?
Instead, I file my newspaper coupon inserts without cutting them at all!
Here's how I do it:
The coupon insert filing drawer is located on the bottom drawer of a 5-drawer filing cabinet that we got for free. In the drawer are 20 hanging files.
The first hanging file contains non-newspaper coupons. The rest of the hanging files hold coupon inserts for each week, in reverse chronological order, with the most recent inserts first and the older ones toward the back. I do this because I'm more likely to use coupons that have been recently issued, as the older inserts contain many expired coupons, but possibly still some usable ones.
In each file I have inserts I get in my local major newspaper as well as the inserts from two free local newspapers in my area. I'm usually able to pick up 4-6 free copies of each of the two newspapers each weekend.
When I get the inserts, I don't cut out the coupons; instead, I just file them in the drawer, uncut.
Then, when I plan my shopping trip, I find the coupons I need in my coupon database or on other coupon matchup sites. I pull out the insert I need, flip through the pages, find the coupon, and cut it out.
Each week, I remove the inserts from the last file, throw them away, change the date on the tab to the current date, put the new inserts in, and put the file at the front of the filing drawer. It only takes a few minutes.
And that's how I organize my coupons!
Even better than saving money from coupons is winning big cash prizes, like the ones in this giveaway!
