    Well on the upside you can check all the dates again to make sure none are expired …

    I would gather them all up and ask acouple of friends to help you go through them or your husband. and I would make up a little box for the 3 yr old to play with.. like the ones your not going to use

      I’ve had to start doing this.  I keep expired ones around and when we go to the store I give her an envelpe with coupons in them.  Otherwise once I turn my head in the store they are everywhere or torn!

        I’m going to have to steal this idea! lol

    My little girl does the same thing!  I find them spread out ALL over the place!  She says she wants to help with coupons.  But she gets the scissors (I’ve learned quickly not to keep them in my box) and starts cutting them…
    But most the time she calls them moneys 😀

    This is something I have recently experienced with my almost 2 year old!!! She was stuffing them in her play purse though and asking me to go shopping!!

    that is histerical!  This is why I use the binder method so my four year old cannot get into them–and-my binder zips up! LOL

    Weeellllll… what more can you say, than “HONEY, GET ME A BEER, STAT!”

    I think it’s hysterical the 2 round spots right in the middle where she was sitting! 🙂

    Holy cow, that’s a whole lot of coupons!

    • Samiee Slaughter

      Oddly enough, that’s the name of my coupon service. Holy Cow Coupons! hahaha

  • LMazz

    Snap, I have never seen so many coupons in my life!

    That’s what my coupons look like when I do them myself. Safeway Club Card, anyone?

    from one couponing mommy to another, a tear is sliding down my cheek.  that is HOURS of organization, however at least they are not wet/ripped/otherwise vandalized….

  • Elena Rincon

    OH MY!! At least she didn’t try to clip any!

  • http://www.facebook.com/fantasticlauren Lauren Wilkinson Borkowski

    Yeah, I have learned to keep mine out of reach. I would probably die if this happened, I have SO many coupons.

  • Samiee Slaughter

    I looked at this and cried. Haha. Poor coupons.

  • sfcoupons Couponheaven

  • Angela

    That’s what you get for being an extreme couponer! 😀

    I have to try really hard to avoid the same crazy mess with my 6 month old puppy!  I have to have my husband take him to the office and shut the door behind them while I have my couponing time!!

    ohhh my 2 year old when ahead and practiced his cutting skills on my coupons.  was so much worse than when he took them out of my binder!

    oh my that is a couponers worst dream.  I always cringe when someone picks up or moves my binders I can see a huge mess.  Huggs to you I think I would have just sat down and cried!

    Wow! That Sux! Good Luck! <3

    Okay, my coupons would be off-limits to my kids.  I would be locking them away!!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/jennifer.frager Jennifer Pike Frager

    🙁 That is sad. Really really sad. My kids have their fair share of “helping em with the coupons” but not to that magnitute. I’ve told my kids that coupons are just the same as money and we use them to get things like ice cream and cookies so the can’t play with them, lol.

  • Cherissa Hamill

    OMG! I think I would faint if I walked in on that! I freak if my son touches anything in my office especially my coupons. Or anyone else for that matter lol. Good luck to you

    hours of organizing ahead.

    As a couponer myself, i would probably trash it and start over after this… yikes!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1605002007 Connie Enderle

    I am wondering where Momma was when this happened?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1605002007 Connie Enderle

    I hope my 4 year old grandson never decides to do that! I have thousands of coupons all the time. In bins and my personal binder now that would be a sad moment!

  • http://www.facebook.com/Iloverichardminer Brittany Jean

    Oh my lanta! I would have been so mad that i would have cried! but on the bright side none of them look damaged!

    I have done this to myself, my box slipped out of my hands in the parking lot and they went every where….thank goodness I had my mom and three boys with me…we got them cleaned up fast and went home

  • Mattie

    They are only little for a while… Enjoy them and some of what they do ,when they do something like this…  You will look back on this and smile and laugh…..

    You know, once you get over the initial shock, and ANGER, lol.  You can only sit back and laugh. “I did the Coupons Mommy!” , “Yes, honey, you truly did!”

    Looks like my house all the time.  My 2 year old loves to help with coupons.  She has started hoarding them too.  I was looking for one of her toys in her toy box and picked up her little purse to check in there.  It was packed full with something.  I opened it up and found she had stuffed it full of coupons.

    All of my friends and family know that my coupons are the same as money to me. Just as you would not take 5 dollars from me, don’t touch my coupons without asking. Yes, they take up space (mine only take up a box and a folder) but look at the real green saved every month. My daughter has her own stack of coupons, that she keeps at her desk ( she is 2).
