FirstBorn readily agreed (hahahahahaha – yeah) to run the PITA errands this afternoon, freeing up enormous amounts of my time: Finally got around to dumping expired inserts. How to know what to keep and what to dump is easy using that handy-dandy Insert Checker on the right sidebar.
Say you have a small bundle of 156 10/6 inserts and wanna know if you should toss them or take a chance on the floorboards collapsing. You click on 10, then the 6 and you find that all coupons from those inserts except Smart Source have expired and the last date of expiration. The SS date is 2/28. What I always do is pull out one of the inserts and thumb through it, looking for that one coupon. 99.9% it’s for Morton water softening salt tablets, so I feel no pangs about tossing the entire insert. If, as happened with quite a few today, there is one coupon that might very well show up on a clearance cart, then I pull the entire page and clip them with all the other orphans.
Today I emptied out 2 1/2 full totes. Used to be my recycling guy threw hexes at my house, but now I load up the car and dump them in the paper recycling dumpster at the library (so they get the extra $$).
