I have a lot of people tell me that they have no clue about how to organize their coupons. Well there a ton of different ways but I am going to show you how I do it. For me it works cause I never know when I am going to make a stop at the store does it take time yes but the money I save on unexpected trips to the store because I do it this way is worth it to me.
Here are the supplies I use:
To start off when I get coupons out the Sunday newspaper I put them in a folder with the date and put them in the hanging file folder. I do this to keep my coupons organized. When I get a free chance I cut the coupons out of that folder and put them in my binder.
My binder is the subject of conversation every time I go into a store because people can’t believe that I put that much effort into something as small as coupons. I tell people all the time to think of coupons as money because that is what you are saving when you use them. Would you treat cash any old kind of way? I wouldn’t and don’t so I treat my coupons as if they was cash themselves.
My binder is big and pink as you can see in the picture above. I used a regular three-ring binder, dividers and baseball card holders. This helps me stay organized, and have my coupons with me while I m shopping and on the go.
I divide my coupons by things I use a lot and I always suggest you do the same. If You want to have the same dividers that I have in my coupon binder I have an inexpensive dividers that you can add to your coupon binder to help organize your coupons. I suggest printing them out and putting them in a page protector before each section.
You can print out categories for your binder for $1.00 via Paypal
Also another tips is to only update this binder once a week. Once I update it I keep the binder in my car at ALL times. Cause there is nothing worse than going into a store at the last-minute and find out that had a coupon for that and don’t have it with you. That is a pet peeve of mine.
Well I hoped this helped those that are starting to get their coupons together and for those that have questions please leave your questions in the comments ( it won’t show up till I approve it) but once you post it I may start answering your coupon questions every week.
