Sunday Coupons




This Sunday's Coupon Preview is not up at http://www.sundaycouponpreview.com/. It has a list of the coupons you should find in this Sunday's paper. This weeks paper includes 1 Smart Source and 1 Red Plum. By seeing what's in the Inserts early you can start planning your trip, or see if you want a few extra papers.

You should look at either getting a Newspaper subscription from local paper or going to the Post Office or Gas Station/Convenience Store and buying one. I also recommend getting a National Paper that has the inserts. Why? Last week I purchased 4 papers, while the majority of the coupons were the same I did get a few different ones, some of I wish I had more of (Nozema Razor, Tabasco Sauce, Dove Soap, Etc.) Also different areas of the country have different coupon values. For example you might get a $1.00/2 in one area and a $0.50/1 in another and the $1.00 coupon doesn't double. Therefore the $0.50/1 is actually more like $1.00/1.

From what I read the number of Newspapers you should get is 1 per person in the household, I always buy 2 myself and the 4 papers were a little too much, I'm never going to buy 4 of some items. If you need more you can always order them from a Coupon Clipping Service, or Ebay.

Organization

There are three methods to organize your coupons.

  1. Clip all the coupons you want and file them in a coupon organizer
    • Pros:
      1. Saves time later by having the coupons pre-clipped
      2. Organized by type/department (ie: Meat, Frozen, Dairy, etc)
      3. Smaller boxes can be taken to the store
    • Cons:
      1. Takes a lot of time to clip coupons that you might no use
      2. Small and you will outgrow quickly
  2. Clip all the coupons you want and file in a binder w/ baseball card or photo sleeves
    • Pros:
      1. Saves time later by having the coupons pre-clipped
      2. Organized by type/department
      3. You can take the binder to the store
      4. Maximum Savings because you can catch deals while shopping
    • Cons:
      1. Takes time to clip coupons and you might not use them
      2. Time consuming to organize and keep up with expired coupons
      3. Depending on the number of coupons you have the binder can get big
  3. Don't clip any coupons and file the inserts in a file system
    • Pros:
      1. Saves time by not clipping anything
      2. Organized by Insert & Date (Red Plum 05-01, Smart Source 04-17, etc.)
      3. Only clip the coupons for the deal when you need it
    • Cons:
      1. Takes time to find deals every day
      2. Miss deals because you leave your coupons at home
      3. Can take up a lot of room because you keep an entire insert and don't always know what is expired and what is good so you keep it all.
I personally use the Binder method because I don't want to scan the Internet all day every day and spend hours a week couponing. I get my inserts and write what insert they came from and date on the coupons (ex; RR 05-01). I then  go online and print my coupons (2 at first, and an additional 2 later if needed). I then file them into several categories; Dairy, Frozen, Meats, Condiments, Rice/Bread/Paste, Health & Beauty, Pet, Household, Snacks/Candy/Chips. Your organizational method is your own, and might even change based on your stores layout. Finally I wait till later in the week, usually Wednesday to find my match ups with my stores (Martin's & Weis). I plan my trip and take my binder with me, that way I can save if there is something on store special or not listed in the weekly flyer or even the match ups (since ads, coupons, and match ups are area specific and  can change from state & region).
