I don't clip until I am ready to use them...but I do have an envelope I keep in my purse with coupons for yogurt, and colgate, and softsoap, and different things that are known to go on sale often and be cheap or FREE! Or for stuff I know we like, so I keep those coupons handy!!
Here is what my coupons look like...
If i tried to clip that huge stack of coupons, I would never have time to use them!! ( I get 5-6 papers a week)
I write the date on the front of each insert and just keep it intact!
I just bought my newspapers today, so if you haven't gone yet, there is still time!!!
