This move has killed my motivation... Coupon inserts are piling up.

I bought 2 months worth of inserts (4 each!) that I had missed while packing and moving from TX to WA for all of February and March. I usually buy clipped coupons so I don't have to clip them. Cutting dozens of inserts just sucks, but IMO, so does just leaving the inserts there. I can't find the motivation to cut them! Grr... Will someone come re-fill my poor binder that hasn't been used in 2.5 months? I don't even want to peek in it to see all the awesome expired coupons I've missed. I would literally pay someone to come do this for me. I LOVE couponing, and I'm passionate about it, but I HATE this part!!!

I think this is my lesson learned to just flat out NEVER buy whole inserts again (at least for me). Clipped coupons only from now own. I just hate waiting 3-4 days for them to come in.

Honestly..that is the ONLY way I do it :-) Put them in a folder labeled with the date on the cover. When you find the sale you want to match them up, you will know where to go for them.

For all these inserts, I think I'm going to keep them whole and clip as needed, and just buy pre-clipped Q's from here on as usual. Ugh. And my binder is broken. :-/

Awe, I'm sorry!! I just finally got my motivation back. I was really unorganized and just couldn't stand it anymore.

What kind of binder did you have? I was going to buy one off of Ebay or something, but I just went ahead and made my own and it ended up being much cheaper.

I've been clipping all my coupons from the inserts, just because it's easier for me. But, I don't buy the paper every weekend anymore. I purchase clipped ones online in bulk when needed.
