There’s one thing I hate more than missing a great sale: missing a great sale that I could’ve supplemented with a recently-expired, great coupon.  Oh, the savings that could’ve been had if I had only used my coupon sooner! Never again. Avoid such a tragedy by keeping your coupons organized.

Front sleeves: Try adding 2-3 baseball card sleeves at the front of your binder. Go through your binder weekly, pulling out coupons that will expire within 1-2 weeks, and file them in these sleeves.

Envelope: File coupons in an envelope labeled Expiring Soon or in envelopes labeled by store name where you think the product is most likely to be on sale or at a low price.

List it: If it’s more effective for you, keep a list of all coupons and their expiration dates or just a list of soon-to-expire coupons. Consult this list when looking over weekly specials, or keep it with your shopping list.

If you don’t use some of your coupons before the expiration date, donate them to military families overseas who can use them up to 6 months past their expiration date! Find out the details HERE.
