Ok, It wasn’t that long ago that I did a post on how to organize your coupons. I was talking about starting a binder then, but hadn’t yet.
Well, it has been a couple months, and I now am the proud owner of a coupon binder. I couldn’t be happier. I used to save a ton with my coupons, but there was always that deal that I missed out on because, “Oh, that coupon is at home.” By the time you go home, you don’t really want to turn around to go back to the store. So, that deal went missed.
Now, I clip all of my coupons. I have a couple really great little helpers. I then file them alphabetically in my binder. I have found it is easier to file them alphabetically that way I don’t have to worry about categorizing them.
I bought the plastic baseball card sleeves off of Amazon for a fraction of what they cost in the store. I had the binder in my closet, which is 4” by the way. You can get one now really cheap with the back to school deals. I bought the ABC dividers at Staples for, I want to say $2 something. OH, and I got super lucky and found this really cool bag at the Bealls clearance center down the road for $9! It fits my binder and is full of pockets for things like my cell phone, business cards, calculator, etc.
I have saved so much extra by carrying my binder with me. Do you have a binder? How do you organize your coupons?
