Couponing Tip: Clean out expired coupons.

Sometimes couponing can be overwhelming when you’re first starting out. Being organized helps on so many levels.  A key step to keeping your coupon binder, folder, or file system organized is cleaning out expired coupons on a regular basis. Set aside a time every week (or month) to go through your binder. Rotating out unused coupons will create space.  I try to do it on Saturdays so I have room when I get my Sunday paper coupons.

Instead of throwing away coupons that you won’t use or are expired, check out this link to learn how you can donate them to military families overseas! They accept expired coupons up to 6 months.

If you often forget to use coupons before they expire, try to keep soon-to-expire coupons in a prominent location, such as a designated envelope, 2-3 extra baseball sleeves at the front of your binder, or keep a running list of coupons you have, organized by expiration dates.

If you have any good ideas on coupon organization I’d love to hear about them, and share of course. 🙂
