Staying Organized is the KEY to successful couponing! Personally, I prefer the whole insert method where I keep my inserts un-cut until I need them.
I get 10 newspapers a week and found that this is the absolute best way to keep the time it takes to coupon to the bare minimum while keeping my pantry overflowing!
Here is how I collate my coupons every week. It usually takes less than 10 minutes a week and then another 15-20 a week to make my detailed list and clip all my coupons.
