Yes! The main reason couponinh is such a pain. I hate shuffling through to find what I need...thinking about trying the clipless system I recently heard about.

 i dont use coupons. i buy generic. many times its cheaper to buy generic than to use the coupon on the expensive item.

This! I also use a 3 ring binder with baseball card holders ( got them for a couple bucks at office Max and Depot. I put all my "must use" coupons up front that are about to expire etc....... Then I have pages for each section of the store so that when I walk through the store I know where my coupons are. I also take them out of the sleve as I find the item and put the coupon in the front of the binder in a page protector.

In that same binder I keep page protectors . One in front for my grocerie list and meal plan for the week. I always keep my meal plans for the week for refference.  I have various others in the back of the binder for different household managment type stuff.

I must say though, I dont spend much time on couponing as we usually buy the store brand that is cheaper BUT after going through the coupons that come in the mail and what people give me, I do save a couple dollars a week - making it well worth my time. But its the meal planning that mainly saves me $$$.

Not so much. I don't clip anymore unless it is something I know I am using in the immediate future. Everything else is in their inserts marked with the date the insert came. I use the matchups to tell me where to look for my coupons.

Not disorganized, but I don't use them very often, either.  The few that I will use are kept in my wallet.
