A reader, Sandra, emailed me about coupons are taking over her house and asked how to manage them. Honestly, this is one of the most asked questions about couponing this week!
My answer: Everyone has their own system in couponing. There is no right or wrong way. For beginner couponers and those with hectic schedules, I recommend filing the Red Plum, P&G, SmartSource inserts by date. Because the dates are written so small on the side of the inserts, write down the date in black ink on the front of the insert. Now, when you read match-ups on blogs, like www.southernsavers.com and www.hip2save.com, the coupons you need will be easy to locate and clip.
Next, categorize the coupons you print in a binder, an inexpensive coupon organizer, shoebox or whatever is easiest and least expensive for you. Use things around your house and get creative!
Since you are shopping with a planned list, it won't be too much trouble for you to keep up with this system.
I hope this helps!
