How to clip coupons

Last updated by at .

Extreme couponing has taken off across the nation and inserts are falling from the sky. Well at least couponing is all over. So finding some good coupon clear plastic photo or baseball card holders or sheets are becoming harder and harder to find. I personally use the middle one below. The four slots per sheet. They are small enough to get a lot of coupons on one sheet, but big enough to get the coupons to show what they are without folding the coupons up so small you can’t tell what coupon it is.

But like I say in my Couponing 101 – Coupon organization is a personal choice as to how to do it. And to make sure you do what works for YOU! Pick the three slots to have your coupons opened up more so you can visually see what is inside the pocket without trying to pull them out. Or get the smaller pockets where you can get more coupons on one sheet to save room.Coupon book page inserts20 (Twenty Pages) – Pro 3-Pocket Coupon Storage Pages (3 Horizontal 3 1/2 x 8 inch Sized Top Loaded Slots)

When I started couponing years ago I thought I would get a coupon binder that looked very office orientated. It was a black fake leather binder. It lasted all of a couple weeks before it fell apart. I came across a binder that seemed to fit couponing perfectly. It had a large three ring binder on one side, and on the other it had a smaller three ring binder. It zipped all the way around and had pockets and a handle that made it really easy to keep things inside without falling out.  And I could hang on to it while wrestling little ones.

It was a Case-It binder. There are many many different versions, single three rings or doubles. And they come in all kinds of dimensions, for the casual couponer to the extreme couponer.

Best part about that binder, is that after all of these years – I still have the same binder! Its full to the max, and is about 5-6 inches thick. But yet still does the job, zips closed, and I can still hang on to it while I wrestle the kids!

Here are the selections they have on sale for Case-It Binders – where you can find all sizes. Or you can see the version of the one I use below:

caseitCase-it 2-in-1 Adjustable Zipper 3-Ring Dual Binder, 1 Set of 3-Inch Rings and 1 Set of 1.5-Inch Rings, Red, Dual-500-RED
On sale for as low as $29.66 and free shipping

  • 3-Inch binder rings and 1.5-Inch binder rings in one unique package
  • Adjustable spine expands binder for up to 5-Inch of capacity
  • Removable pencil case, padded media pockets, and plenty of other storage space
  • Built-in handle and shoulder strap
  • Unique angled zipper design for easy opening and closing

I got an email for one of my readers who just started couponing.  She was all excited about starting to save money.  She got her first set of Sunday papers and felt defeated 3 hours later…..when she was STILL clipping coupons.  So I thought I would share a few of my tips on how I am able to clip 10 sets of coupons, and file them away in less than an hour.

Start out by separating the coupon insert, on the floor or table.  Do this to all the coupon insert that are the same….so you now have stacks of pages that are the same.

Once you have all the pages laid out in piles……make sure they are nice and in order.

I then put a staple in the middle of the coupon, on the photo normally.  DO NOT staple the bar code or the expiration date.  When you staple the coupons all together they are easier to cut because the papers do not shift. Plus you only have to put one stack of coupon away…instead of 10 separate coupons.

When I clip the coupon I go ahead and give myself a little extra room around the edges to make sure I do not cut part of the coupons off.  And just like that you have clipped 10 coupons in the time it takes to clip 1.  This is what works for me….hope it helps someone else too.
