Be a “Coupons are my Currency” Couponer.
Casual couponers browse their newspaper coupon insert, clip the coupons they think they’ll use, and then put the rest in the recycle bin. But as a “coupons are my currency “couponer, keeping the rest of the insert has its advantages
If you want to be a couponer that uses your coupons to pay for those items you normally would not be able to afford then, keep all or most of your coupons until they expire. You don’t necessarily have to clip every coupon just save the inserts and you will clip them as you need them. File the rest of the inserts into sheet protectors or gallon zip bags marked with the date of the inserts. If a moneymaker comes up and the coupon isn’t clipped, find it by the insert date listed in the matchups list, 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, toys to shelters; products to food banks, or needy neighbors; pet food to animal shelters for list of charities needing help visit our couponing for charity page.
