Going through my coupons is always a tough time. I’m not great at organizing my coupons by expiration date, so oftentimes, they’ll go unnoticed or expire quietly without me getting the chance to use them. That always disappoints me— I almost feel bad not using a coupon because someone else could have gotten use out of it.
But after all was said and done, here is what my pile looked like:
This coupon pile is made up of coupons that are both expired and those that I will never use. I cut some out thinking that I could use them somewhere, but I never got the chance. So out they go! My coupon book is always bursting at the seams, and the more room I can make in it, the better.
Some rules of thumb:
-If you know you’re not going to use the product or that you won’t purchase it, scrap it. Sometimes, I cut coupons out of sheer enthusiasm for clipping, and I can’t use all of them in the end.
-If it’s going to expire in 5 days and there is no sale coming up that you see from reading circulars, scrap it. Chances are, if you didn’t use it yet and there’s no sale, you’re not going to use it.
-Cut down on multiples. Come on, you’re an average person, not a stockpiler. Do you REALLY need 10 detergent coupons? My max that I keep for frequently used items is 4, 2 for a less frequently used product. Rarely have I kicked myself for getting rid of coupons that I have double digit copies of, and I’ve been kwon to ahve them.
-If new coupons were issued of the same value with a later expiration date, get rid of the ones with the earlier expiration date. It’s the same product that lasts longer.
Hope this helps!
This is a MAJOR money-saving tip, so take note:
These two coupons were issued in the booklets that came out two weeks ago that I first got around to cutting today. Sometimes you’ll see these coupons issued together: one coupon is off of 1 product, and one coupon is off of 2 products. It’s the exact same product. Fine, easy. Two products= more money saved, right?
So totally wrong, bro.
Take a look at the coupons closely: .70 off 1 box of cereal versus $1 off 2. $1 off 2 turns into .50 cents off on 1 box, less than the .70 cents off 1.
But on top of that, the .70 cents coupon does NOT restrict doubling! This turns into $1.40 off 1 box of cereal. Which, in cereal language, is a miracle.
Basically, scrap the $1 off 2 in favor for the .70 cents off 1. You’ll save a ton!

You would think that a company issues a coupon of one value in each batch.
Depending on where you live (and it can vary fromtowntotown!), company values completely differ. In one area of delivery, a particular coupon may request purchasing different amounts to use the coupon, the face value of the coupon may be different, etc.
This happened to me while clipping this weekend and it absolutely blew my mind:
These Scott Towels coupons are identical in their expiration date, size of product sold, their terms and conditions, found in two identical inserts. One is only worth 50 cents, and one is worth $1.
It’s not a problem because grocery stores around me double coupons and it will be worth $1 anyway. But still, isn’t that crazy?
