How to purge expired coupons from your coupon file without spending an entire afternoon sifting and sorting through them is a question I’m frequently asked. Every quarter I go through and clean out my coupon file, setting aside all the coupon inserts from previous weeks’ papers that only contain coupons that are past their expiration date.
I worked on that today and recorded a video showing you how I do it. If you prefer to read the instructions, refer to this article about an easy way to purge out-of-date coupons. Thanks to my dear friend Kristine, and recently appointed Pocket Your Dollars’ videographer, for her behind-the-camera magic (that’s a joke because she had never shot a video before this one today). If you can’t see the video player on your screen or in your email, then click this link to watch it from Pocket Your Dollars’ You Tube channel.
I plan to do videos more routinely, so you might want to subscribe to the Pocket Your Dollars’ You Tube channel so you’re notified when something new has been published. I am also working to get many of the television segments that I’ve done in the past year, those that talk about timeless money-saving principles, uploaded to You Tube. They are a wealth of information and I’m looking forward to compiling them in one place.
Like I promised in the video, I’ll do a video segment on things you can do with your expired coupons, but in the meantime read about some options. (Update: There is no follow-up video yet and I routinely feel guilty about it.)
Your turn: What system do you use to purge your expired coupons? (If you make a video to demonstrate it I *think* you can upload it to the Pocket Your Dollars’ You Tube channel. If you have a problem with it, then email me and we’ll figure out how to get it there. You can always upload it to the Pocket Your Dollars’ Facebook fan page)
