Use this time to purge your expired coupons and print off online coupons. There is a wide variety of online printable coupons at Coupons.com, and RedPlum.com.
1~ Look through the inserts Sunday by Sunday and begin clipping out only the coupons that are not expired.
2~ Make a pile for each insert.
3~ Keep each Sundays coupons together.
4~ On each pile place a sticky note with the name of the insert that the coupons came from and the date they were issued.
5~ Find an envelope and stick the unexpired coupons inside.
6~Place the envelope back into your accordion file in the appropriate section.
TIP: You can purge your Proctor & Gamble every month since 90% of the coupons in that insert expire after 30 days. Just clip out the few that haven’t expired.
