couponing 101

My oldest friend (as in known the longest, not as in her age) and I took an excellent couponing class in March last year. Before then, I clipped coupons and thought I was rocking it but I was really missing out until I learned the ins and outs at that class. I'm not as hardcore as some, but I get 5 newspapers delivered to my house on Sundays, I print out anything I think I'll use, and I love to find store coupons because my store of choice takes all competitor coupons. With sales and doubled coupons and store/competitor coupons all rolled into one shopping trip, I save more than I spend every time. Of course this is slightly time-consuming but I always feel that it is worth it. And I LOVE seeing the amount saved at the end of the month. And even though most of my girlfriends now live far away, even my beloved oldest friend, my sweet husband tries to act as excited as he knows those ladies would. I know he does it just for me, because my level of satisfaction and joy is quite nerdy. :)

So, in lieu of organization for my coupons, I feel less that impressive. I've tried a few different things but I think my current system is too inefficient and I would like some feedback. What works for you?
