Since I use a clipping service, I use a hybrid method. I get just the coupons I need each week and keep those in an accordion file that fits in my purse. When I did the whole insert method, it was so time consuming and I ended up buying a lot of stuff we didn’t need.

I used something like this for my coupons. Now I’ve been clipping coupons a lot less. I mainly just look at the local ads to find the best prices and buy things when they are cheap. Thanks for sharing this at Romance on a dime!!
