Why pay full price when you can get it for free or nearly free?

My Coupon Binder June 5, 2010

There are many ways to keep your coupons organized, you just have to pick the one that is best for you.  I personally use the binder method.

Here’s how I organize my coupons:

I have 36 different categories, I got my dividers at the Dollar Tree, 8 for a buck.

Baking

Boxed Meals

Breads

Breakfast Bars

Body Wash

Candles/Fresheners

Candy/Gum

Canned

Cereal

Chips/Crackers

Cleaning

Condiments

Cookies

Dairy

Deodorant

Desserts

Dishsoaps

Drinks

Feminine

Food Storage

Frozen

Hair Care

Household

Laundry

Makeup

Meats

Medicine

Paper Products

Pet

Restaurants

Shaving

Side Dishes

Skin Care

Soups/Broths

Spices

Toothpaste

In each section, I have baseball card holders for each coupon.  I got mine at Walmart, 35 for just under $6.

When I get my papers each week, I go through and clip the ones I know I’m going to use.  Then, I write the date on the front of each insert and place them in a page protector in the back of my binder.  This way I can find a coupon easily if I find a deal listed online.  I also got my page protectors at the Dollar Tree 30 for a buck.

When I’m ready to go to the store, I place the coupons I need for that trip in an envelope.  I keep the envelopes marked by store, this way if I see a deal listed on a blog I can grab those coupons, stick them in the right envelope and there they are when I go to that store next!
