Clever Ways to Organize Your Coupons 


SMALL COUPON ORGANIZER

This is one method I use, because it's easier than lugging around a big binder. Here is a nice one from Amazon.

This system is the best one for someone who is new at using coupons or even a casual couponer.  There are no labels on the tabs, so you will want to add your own.  Here are some sample categories you may want to consider.

Health/Beauty
Refrigerated/Frozen
Meat/Produce
Paper Goods
Household
Pets
Snacks
Retail

Add in any additional sections, or remove those that you do not need. The idea is to ensure you can find the coupons you need when you are ready to use them.

 

CLIPLESS COUPON METHOD

Pick up an accordion file and place your weekly inserts into it, grouped by date. This is a popular method because it does not require you to cut out your coupons until you need them.

Add tabs for each month of the year.  Then, clip together multiple inserts from the same date.  Finally, write the date on the cover and file it away!

Then, before you shop, you find the coupon you need and clip it only then and use it.  That way, you save lots of time trying to clip, sort and organize on a weekly basis.

 

 

COUPON BINDER METHOD

This binder is nice - here are the features!

  • Tall and durable plastic dividers - not cheap paper found in other products.
  • Stretchy elastic sides - fit more coupons and easier coupon searching.
  • Front pocket for your shopping list.
  • Sticker labels use categories from extreme coupon blogs. Blank stickers included for you to create your own categories.

Add baseball card sleeves and divider tabs.  The sleeves are where you will place the coupons once they are clipped.
