Organize and Proper Use of Coupons

Using coupons incorrectly is an illegal act and considered as a coupon fraud. This is why it is important to know how to properly use them. A coupon should be a higher value coupon that can be used to make it worth your money when used. Most manufacturers provide a coupon for a specific product in their line that is of a higher price. Be wise in using these kinds of coupon in the item that it is intended for so that the store can get reimbursed for it.

Keep Coupons Organized!!!

There are many ways on how you can organize your coupons, so that you will not have a hard time using it properly. The key for this is to find the most appropriate approach that will work best for you. Here are three of the most effective options that you can consider:

Leave the coupon inserts intact and clip them on an “as-needed” category.
Clip out all of your coupons
Clip out the coupons that you intend to use.

It is also important to make your coupons neat and easily accessible. You can do this by doing:

A filing system for your coupons. People who use coupons are too keen in organizing their coupons by categorizing them.
Putting coupons inside a container. You may use a shoebox, a coupon binder, a storage computer, a recipe box, or a coupon wallet. It doesn’t matter what kind of container you are going to use as long as you have a landing spot for all of your coupons.
File all your coupons on the same day that you have gotten them. It is quite understandable that because of your busy schedule, you won’t be able to file them as soon as you get hold of them. But it won’t hurt if you at least find time to file them as soon as you can. In this way, you will be able to prevent them from getting lost, thus saving you the hassles of sorting them out when it is time for you to use them.
Use them regularly. Expired coupons will not be of much use to you. In fact, it will never have any value. Sort out your collection of coupons and try to check whether they are expired or not. To avoid getting expired coupons, you have to have a schedule on purging them.
