How to cut out multiple inserts and Sorting Tips:

No one wants to cut coupons out one at a time!!! The best and most efficient way I have found to cut out multiple manufacturers coupons is as follows:

  • Separate all copies of each same insert by page ( ie.. separate all the Redplum into piles and then Smart Source etc…) and stack them on top of each other (I sit on the floor spread eagle and separate my pages into like piles). Watch my Coupon Yoga video for more tips!
  • Cut all the same page at one time, gripping your stack tightly. This makes it so you are cutting only once!!!
  • Make sure they line up – sometimes you will get some from a different printing and you’ll need to adjust the alignment.
  • Only cut out coupons for products that if they were free cheap or a family favorite – you would use - no matter the value of the coupon! You never know when a brand you don’t often use, but would, could be free!

Here is a Coupon Yoga Series video that pretty much sums up everything above. :)

      Regional – It means the coupon did not come to everyone in the US, just targeted states/cities.

    So is there no shopping wizard type tool anymore? This was my life blood!!!!

      There is not. :( It was not my idea. I know it’s not the same but my lists can be used to Price match or at the store where they are advertised. Also, my lists should be come searchable, similar to the Shopping Wizard, very soon! :)

    Amy, Can you tell me your list of categories. I’m not good with coming up with my own and thought I can narrow it down with what you have. TIA
