Finding Time to be Frugal

If you had not noticed my posts on money saving have been fewer and further between.
My classes this semester have been much more work than the last and I am WEEKS behind on coupon clipping and frankly was close to giving up the ghost. I happened to catch Oprah today and Couponmom was on. First let me say I am SOOOOO jealous of places that get double coupons, I literally salivate at the thought of Publix doubling. Second and most important I realized I need to get my coupon clipping kiester in gear. I need ideas on how to organize my coupons without having to clip them all, until summer break, I just don't have time to clip 3papers worth of coupons. Help!!

Sorry I don't have any tips or ideas as I am sure you know. But I also saw that Oprah show and I was sooooo jealous that anyone even gets to use coupons!! It's stinks that everything is so darn expensive here and we don't have coupons....

I'm seriously considering using a binder with the baseball card inserts to separate all my coupons so I can easily bundle ones for the same products and such. I'm a very visual person and this may be my only hope. I'm WEEKS behind in clipping too

I too am soooo jealous of the areas that have double coupons-I also wished Publix here in O-town would double! I have gotten to where I hardly ever clip my coupons, if I do, they are for ones that I know I will use- the others I file the whole insert (which I match/staple each section together) and file them by month. I subscribe to Refundcents which has a listing of all of the coupons and I search there and find out which insert the coupon I am needing is in. I know it doesn't help when you are at a store and decide to pick up something that you did not plan on, but it works for me.
