Today's task is to organize all your coupons and store loyalty cards. I've noticed that coupons contribute to a lot of the paper clutter that ends up scattered around my house. I'm not an avid couponer who saves every coupon, but I do like to save coupons for stores or restaurants that I might use. I also think it's very important to store the coupons where I'll actually use them – in my purse. It's super frustrating to get to the checkout at a clothing store and remember that I got a 20% off coupon, but it's sitting on my desk at home! That's why I came up with this system for organizing my coupons.
You can use this method or another that your prefer, but just get those coupons organized today.
