Get fabuLESSly organized! STOP clipping your coupons!

What?! STOP clipping coupons? Surely, I’ve lost it– right? WRONG!

Clipping and sorting your coupons the old fashioned way is WAY inefficient– all that time spent clipping and sorting– only to then spend MORE time hunting for coupons in your coupon file that might or might not exist– and then having to pull out all of your expireds– ugh.  STOP IT.

Here’s what to do instead– just grab the ENTIRE insert and write the date on it– and then file it away.  You can use a file folder or just put it into a pile or a box– whatever works for you.  I use large envelopes and I keep all of my Smart Source coupon inserts together, all of my Red Plum inserts together and all of my P&G inserts together– and they all live in a tote bag– isn’t this cute? (It’s also small and portable!)


THEN, when you’re preparing to go shopping, you use a coupon matchup (What’s a coupon matchup? Click HERE to watch the video– it’s life changing!) Find the coupon matchups for OVER 50 national and regional stores HERE OR if you can’t find a coupon matchup for your local store– just prepare your shopping list from the flier and then search for coupons that “match up” to the item(s) that you’re buying by using the coupon search engine on www.coupontom.com

But, but what about clearance or unadvertised specials– well, you STILL can shop on the fly– just bring your file of coupon inserts and a smartphone and look to see if there’s a matching coupon on coupontom– OR be comfortable in the knowledge that you might miss a coupon here or there but in the grand scheme of things, that’s OKAY.  I’d rather NOT invest hours per week clipping and sorting and miss out on using a coupon now and then– my time is more valuable than that, and so is yours!

FabuLESSness isn’t about getting the VERY lowest price on EVERYTHING— nor is it about perfection– it’s about the maximization of your savings while minimizing your effort.  Don’t become a slave to your coupons– make them work for you, not the other way around!

Stay fabuLESS! xo
