We are often asked how many hours a week do we spend organizing our coupons. I spend on average 1 hour a week. Here are a few simple tips to keep your coupons organized.
1. Use the binder method. I can honestly say that by switching to the binder method I have saved far more than I would without. I have all of my clipped coupons with me when I am at the store so I can get in on more deals – both unadvertised and manager’s specials.
2. On Saturday I order coupons from clipping services. This is a huge time saver for me! I purchase quantities of coupons that I hope to stockpile.
3. On Sunday I clip coupons from the Sunday paper. I get 2 papers delivered to my house. I clip on Sunday afternoon and file them on Sunday night – this process takes me no more 45 minutes to 1 hour (and often times less). Check out the Sunday Enquirer Deal. I sort them and file them that night.
4. On Tuesday I check the mail and file my coupons that arrived from the Coupon Clipping Service.
I hope these tips help you save big too!
