When you last left me I had seven weeks of coupon inserts to clip.  I dove in with both feet because I knew that once I started this process it would be a bear to find coupons that I needed for my shops.  My usual process is to stack the inserts and tear the pages apart.  I kept each week in one pile so that, again, I could find any coupons I needed.

Once I had all of the inserts separated I started clipping.  It really didn’t take as long as I thought it would. From the picture below, you can’t really tell how many coupons I clipped.  I was surprised at the lack of canned goods and fridge coupons.  Honestly, I don’t think they put as many coupons in the inserts as they used to.  Have you noticed that too?

I’m happy to report that I’m no longer behind on my clipping, and I’m so pumped!!!  My binder doesn’t look so empty anymore either.
