If you're a coupon-clipper, you'll know the challenges:
- how to keep those bits of paper, plastic, and cardboard from taking over your purse or the drawer in the kitchen,
- and how to develop a system that ensures they get used before they expire.
The super-helpful people at Tipnut
have put together a list of suggestions
that pretty much guarantee you'll find the system that will work for you, whatever your organizational style -- or lack thereof! You like the casual efficiency of envelopes? You can do that! You prefer an accordion file or a wallet, a card file or a binder? It's all there!
If you simply don't know how to choose a system, Tipnut provides a list of links to sites where you can see a system in action. If that's not enough, there's another set of links to articles with even more detailed information. Really! How helpful can you get?
Once you've got your system chosen, you have to determine how to use it. Will you sort by expiration date, by product, or put them in alphabetically? How will you choose the coupons you need when you go shopping? How will you get them to the store?
If there's a question about coupons that isn't answered in this post, I'll ... eat my coupons!
