    Red face How to you organize your coupons????

    I just wanted to know what you all use for coupon organizing!

    Personally, I use a small divider that I bought at dollarama for 1.00 (theyre 1.25 now, lol)

    I heard that some people use binders, but im also curious to how you go about doing that.
    Lets see if we can get some great and useful ideas!

    I personally use both the binder AND the organizer in tandem. My binder is where I store all the coupons. And then, when I've reviewed the flyers and have taken a look at the coupons that I have, I take out of the binder the coupons that I will use that week, and sort them by store (in individual envelopes that are labeled with that stores name) and keep them in the organizer. OF COURSE I keep the binder in my car just in case there is an unadvertised special that I need my coupons for (and we have all been THERE), but generally, I carry the organizer in my purse, and away I go with my list and the coupons that I need for the week!

    I just stick mine in envelopes and label them with a sharpie, (more so to keep them organized when looking to trade them with others or give them away).

    I used to keep them in a accordion file...organized by date, but I out grew that idea in about 4 months. I am now using the file for my weekly shop and mini photo albums to store my coupons in. One has groceries and cleansers and the other health and beauty and a business card holder for loyalty cards, gift cards, restaurant coupons and odds and ends (like a $20 bill folded up just in case!!!)

    I keep all coupons that I will/may use in a small (size of large wallet) accordion file folder, with the following catergories:

    On Today's List
    Dry Goods (general)
    Cereal and Lunch Snacks
    Refrigerated Goods (general)
    Cheese and Yogurt
    Frozen Goods
    Cleaning Supplies
    Toiletries
    Baby

    Any coupons that I have yet to clip, or am saving for a friend, or hope to use for trades, and MIR forms/receipts go in a small shirt box - along with a pair of scissors, a pen, stamps, and envelopes for when I have a few minutes to deal with them.

    I too keep my in a wallet size accordian file. I bought years and years ago at Staples. I think you can buy them at Walmart and the Dollar store. I have been thinking about reorganizing my labels though. Right now I have:

    Personal Hygiene
    Cleaning
    Paper products
    Breakfast
    Juices
    Snack
    Meats/fish
    Side dishes
    Dairy
    Pharmacy
    Misc
    Baby

    Don't forget to label whatever you use in case you and your coupons are ever separated.

    For coupons I trade I also use envies labeled with Sharpies lol, and for my stash I use an accordian file. I feel naked in a grocery store without my accordian file.

    I put all my Coupon, they came to the 26 bags, expanding files the case, I had a lot of the 6 dollar coupon. I marked the week and date of each option card is inserted. Therefore, there are 3 tabs a few weeks. I do not clip coupons, until I need them to save some time, but I think I miss the coupon, because in my fingertips in the store did not.

    Good alignment is the key to a acknowledged advertisement accumulation program. If you are one of the millions of humans who accept angry to coupons to save money, you may already apprehend what a alarming assignment it can be to accumulate them organized.

    I have a coupon binder I've been using for a couple of years already. The binder is also bought using a coupon. With regards to how I organize my coupons, I find it effective to sort them according to category and then sort again according to brands. It may seem time consuming but works great for me. Whenever I go out I always make sure I have it in my bag.
