How to Organize Your Coupons

There are 3 method’s in which you can use. Keep in mind do whatever works best for you. I of course use the binder method.

Binder Method: Clipping coupons and sorting in plastic baseball card/photo holders. Can sort alphabetically or by product category.

PROS: Easy to carry into a store. Makes finding a coupon for an unplanned item easy.

CONS: Time consuming, to clip/sort/clean out.

#2 is the Clipless System

Filing Whole Inserts/Clipless: Filing entire inserts according to date and type.

PROS: Easy, quick to sort. No clipping. Easy to find coupons when matching up from a list.

CONS: Must search database to find coupons on unplanned purchases. Can make finding coupons take longer. Almost impossible to take into a store.

#3 Clipping & Sorting (using an accordion filer/or box): Clip all coupons and sort in a accordion filer/box. Can sort alphabetically or by product category. When I first started coupons, I sorted using product categories and sub divided categories using envelopes.

PROS: Easy to find coupons. Easy to carry into a store. Great with a small supply.

CONS: Tedious clipping/sorting.

As you can see each one has pro’s and con’s.

Here are some catorgies to go by when using the binder method:

Air fresherns, Breads,Baby, breakfast,canned, dairy,drinks, frozen, medicine, makeup, paper, pasta, produce, snacks, toothpaste etc., washing detergent, vitimans etc.

You will need to set it up for whatever your needs are. I do not have a baby so I have no baby section in mine.

I am a SAHM of 2 daugher's. My main hobby is coupon shopping. I just love getting things FREE or only paying pennies for them. I love to bake anything sweet! When I'm not coupon shopping I'm usually found at home cleaning, reading, clipping, filing my coupons. I do love to travel and see places I've never been to before.
