Love the savings but OMG getting Inundated with e-mail Coupons!

It's that time of year when everyone is emailing coupons.  I love the savings.  But it always seems when I need them most I am scrambling to find them in my email when I don't use them the same day.  I tried keeping a coupon folder in my email but it was so overrun with expired coupons I just started deleting them. Then I am at the store and can't believe I didn't either save the coupon or can't find it easily in my email so I end up paying full price.

Are you experiencing this too and how are you keeping them organized so you have them when you are at the store and need them the most?

If you have an iPhone or android "snip snap" is a great app. Just scan ur paper coupons with your phone or save them straight to "snip snap" and they'll be saved on your phone. I keep all my coupons on my phone and the coupons could be scanned from the phone at the register. The app also let's you know when they are about to expire. Paperless and quick.

I do have an iPhone and that's fabulous for paper coupons! Can you push coupons you received in email into snip snap?

Yes they go straight to the app. You can also share your coupons and look up other coupons people have shared by category and add them to your snip snap folder.

I like how most of them can be scanned from your smart phone.  I keep the one with the best savings from a store and delete the rest.  If I am not going to shop at a particular store, I delete it.
