Don’t be an amateur couponer and dispose of coupon inserts you deem unnecessary. Consider it like coupon insurance. You never know when you may suddenly need a product that had a coupon which you just threw away! Or maybe there’s a stellar deal you can take advantage of with a product you never thought you’d buy. You’re a professional Krazy Coupon Lady now, which means you save all your coupon inserts just in case!

Here at KCL, we recommend that you keep all or the most of your coupons until they expire. You don't necessarily have to clip every coupon. Many Krazy Couponers clip coupons for the products they are likely to buy and file the rest of the inserts into sheet protectors or gallon zip bags marked with the date of the inserts. If a stellar moneymaker comes up and the coupon isn’t clipped, find it by the insert date listed in our matchups, and cut it out while you make your shopping list.

Holding on to coupons, even for products you don't personally use, can be beneficial. You can donate items you get for cheap or free, like glucose monitors to retirement centers; toys to shelters; non-perishables to food banks, soup kitchens, or needy neighbors; pet food to animal shelters; etc. Also, swapping coupons with friends or family for products you don't use benefits you both.
