Coupon Organizing

I have a very busy schedule with a 20 month old and a newborn so I don't have time to clip Sunday coupons.  I am also nursing which takes up most of my time. Instead of clipping and organizing them in a binder, I organize the inserts. 
This is where I keep my coupons

I write the date the insert came out on the insert. Then I put them in a hanging folder organized by date like below:

 Once I have completed my shopping list, I clip the coupons. There are many sites that do the work for you and let you know where you can find the coupons.  My favorite is I heart publix. For example, she will post something like below:

Classico Pasta Sauce, Assorted Varieties, 8.1 to 24 oz jar, BOGO $2.47
-$.75/1 Classico Pasta Sauce, Any 24 Oz. + – 01-10-10 SS

I go to my filing system and pull out the 1-10-10 Smart Source insert and clip the Classico coupon.  If it read "RP" instead of "SS", I would go to my Red Plum insert. 

I carry a small binder that I keep coupons my wonderful mother-in -law mails me.  This is what I carry with me sometimes.  I also organize misc. coupons in the binder like restaurants or clothing stores.

Everyone has their way of organizing coupons, but this is the way it works for me!
