Organize your coupons! :-)

I've let myself get a bit behind on clipping and organizing coupons the last couple months. I had the fliers, but my "system" had kind of gone out the window. So one morning last week, I took a couple of hours to go through my entire coupon box, eliminate expireds, and clip and organize the valid coupons.

I didn't get it completely finished, but it was far better, and provides needed motivation to keep my coupon box organized. It's so much easier to maintain a system that's already in place than to attempt to deal with a sloppy mess.

My challenge to you is to set a time to go through your coupons, eliminate the expired ones, and organize the ones that are still good. There's no point in saving coupons unless you can use them! :-)

And while you're getting rid of coupons, consider passing them on to members of the military who can use them.

Great advice, Bethany. I need to do the same thing tomorrow. I have gotten behind. Thanks for the reminder!

Yikes, I need a system for this. I just started with coupons this week and they are in a little pile until I figure out where else to put them...

I have been there....recently! A question: how much does it usually cost to send a package of coupons overseas? It depends on the weight I'm sure, but it's something I would like to and am just trying to figure it all out. Thanks!

Sarah,

If you can mail to an APO, it's the same price as postage in the U.S.
