Here's the pile I had to sort through. It was fairly simple with the inserts that had the old dates printed on the side. I didn't even bother with those.
This is my couponing purse. Now that my coupon files aren't as big, I don't think I'll be needing this purse specifically for couponing anymore.
What is nice though, is that it fits both coupon files, a small clipboard, pens, scissors, and my wallet and grocery ad, when needed.
I used my label maker to label each coupon section. This makes it so much easier for me when I'm shopping, rather than looking through all of the food coupons at once.
For the multiple duplicate coupons I clip, I staple them together. It makes it easier to handle, file, clip, etc.
After clipping, I sort. These coupon sorting mats have the same categories that I have in my files. To download these sorting pages for free, click here.
It's such a relief to have that taken care of. Now I can save a bit of money while I shop, too!
