With only one insert this week I was able to complete my coupon clipping pretty quickly yesterday. First I collated the insert, then I started clipping. I keep my coupon binder on the table and after I clipped all the copies of one coupon, I file it.
In the past I used to clip all the coupons first and file them afterward. I always ended up with a massive amount of coupons on the table that all need to be filed. Inevitably a meal interrupted the process, so I would end up putting them all in a big stack, or worse yet, they would get all mixed up. Either way, it's a pain to file them after that.
By filing them as I go along, I can easily use a post-it note to mark where I stopped in the insert and then just pick up later where I left off. Remember, try to clip and file your coupons all on the same day you receive them!
