Weekend Mini-Organizing Challenge: Coupons
Need some organizing motivation and inspiration, or a gentle nudge? Subscribe to my blog to receive mini-organizing challenges several weekends a month. They will be automatically emailed to you so you won’t have to remember to visit the blog.
Mini-organizing challenges are doable and will focus on de-cluttering a tiny area of your home. If the weekend challenge “speaks” to you, then set your timer for 30 minutes and start organizing/de-cluttering. Stop when the timer goes off and enjoy the rest of your weekend knowing that you accomplished something! Of course you may continue organizing if you have gained the momentum you needed.
Sort out a drawer, file, envelope or pile of coupons this weekend. Check the expiration dates, there are probably plenty to recycle. Organize the rest by category and file in a coupon wallet. A plastic file folder could hold non-grocery type coupons. Place this folder in your car. This will ensure you have them when you need them, or at least only require a walk out to the parking lot.
I use a plastic folder, between the front seats in my car to hold coupons for Bed Bath & Beyond, restaurants and entertainment. I don’t clip coupons for groceries.
