Newbie (to this forum) with an organizing coupon question

How do you organize your coupons? What do you keep them in? I just recently got on the coupon bandwagon and have a pile sitting on my kitchen table and have no idea what to do with them. TIA!!

Re: Newbie (to this forum) with an organizing coupon question

  • I don't use coupons for the grocery store (I save more by buying generic), but for other coupons, I have an envelope in my car and I just keep my coupons in there and get then out as needed.
  • often my grocery store has a small accordian file thing haning around in some odd spot - and I do mean hanging, they have a chain or something that they put them on then hang them from the door in the freezer section or whatever.  They move them around a lot too, just ask the customer service desk at your grocery store.

    I have one and I find it difficult to use because I don't check through it often enough or I forget to bring it in to the store with me - I know big couponers use those clear pages that you would put in a photo album.  They have  four spots per page (for four photos), so front and back you'd only need a few sheets.  But I agree with pp, a few little envelopes clipped with a binder clip would do just fine.

  • In the dollar section of Target I got a plaxtic accordian file and labeled my own sections with a label maker. I put my coupons in there, for non grocery coupons I use an envelope and keep it in my purse.

  • I use two different small photo albums.  They're the ones that would hold an individual 4x6 picture on each page.  I use one for food and the other for everything else.  I have each page categorized for coupons such as dairy, frozen, etc.  It's been working for me for the past couple of years.
  • I use a 1inch binder and baseball card pages. I typically shop at one grocery store so I have my coupons divided up by aisles, and as I go through the store I can just flip the page and use the coupons I have. If you shop at more than one store, it would make sense to just divide the coupons by category.

    Happy couponing!

  • For a while I tacked mine onto a bulletin board.  I am a visual person and I found that when looking at the flyers and matching coupon to the sale items (for a double deal) it helped to have them right in front of me.  I tried the accordion thing but I would forget what all I had and then they didn't get used.  After flyer shopping I'd just take the needed coupons off of the board and put them in my wallet.  I'd make a notation on my grocery list to remember the coupon too..every little bit counts.

  • I started using business card holders in a 1 inch binder. I cut the coupons with a paper cutter I got at michaels which saves a bundle of time. When I'm going to the store and have a list I put the coupons I want in an envelope for easy access but usually take the binder along in case I need one last minute.
