January 29 Coupons (4 inserts)

I picked up my coupons today (18 newspapers to be exact) and I'm ready to get sorting. I'm using a new strategy to sort and keep up with what coupons I have. If I really like I'll share it.

Tell me how do you sort and keep up with your coupons?

Oh, did I mention that I only spent $1.50 for all my newspapers? Yep!  
So I got $13,230 in coupons for $1.50!!!!!!
