Couponing 101: Organization

  • Posted on May 5, 2011 at 11:02 PM

When I first started using coupons I was really lazy about it. I would clip them, stuff them in an envelope, then forget about them. I decided to start keeping them in my my checkbook, but they made it bulky. When I would fish them out, they’d all spill out and fall to the floor. I still ended up tossing more (due to expiration) then actually using them.

A few months ago I bought a small accordion folder.It worked out better until my little pile of coupons became a mountain. A few days ago I got this. It was $10. The baseball card holders were $4.50 for a pack of 30.

I am loving my binder! I keep my scissors,weekly ads, unclipped inserts and a calculator all arranged nicely. To prevent it from spilling out (I’m a klutz) it zips up all nice and snug. 🙂 I still need another pack of baseball card holders (I have 30, and for optimal organization you need 60) and category inserts, but that will come together in time.

My mom asked if I was going to tote it around with me when I go shopping? WHY NOT? I don’t care what anyone thinks. If they knew they could save $$ by doing it many of them would too!

Gone are the days where I am at a store and smack my forehead because “I know I have a coupon for that somewhere”.
