Tackle it Tuesday

My Tackle this week was my beloved pretty pink coupon binder!
I am so ashamed that I have let it get this out off hand, my coupons were piling up unclipped and my binder was filled with coupons that had expired in June SO BAD! I have no excuse for this, just pure laziness.
These are all my expired coupons WOW!After a couple of hours clipping, sorting , and pulling I finally got it back in shape YEA!!! Hopefully now shopping for good deals will be allot easier :)
For more Tackle it Tuesday fun visit 5 Minutes for mom.

I noticed that you have Bed, Bath & Beyond coupons in your stack of expireds. Just thought I'd tell you that our stores have always allowed us to use these coupons regardless of the expiration date. And you can use as many of them as you want in one transaction. So if you have 10 items and 10 coupons, you can use all of them. The potential is there to save a lot of money, especially if you're buying sale or clearance items!

I was just wondering what you were going to do with your expired coupons? I have just heard about a great way to put them to use: donating them to families in the military overseas. They are allowed to use coupons up to 6 months after expiration. I have decided to go through all of my coupons at the end of every month, and send them overseas. Shipping them only cost a dollar or two, and I love helping out others.

Yeah I'm pretty sure my binder looked the exact same way this week! I did some clipping while Gabe was sleeping. Got it under control. Didn't quite get all of it done, but most of it. I couldn't even close my binder, and once I would, the velcro would pop back open!!! I had so many coupons that I didn't realize had expired too, made me sad that I didn't use them.

I think I have the same binder as you. Mine's red. I love it.
