There are many ways to organize coupons, but the important thing is to have them organized. Planning out shopping trips is a much quicker process when you know exactly where your coupons are and can easily find the ones you want.
There’s no right or wrong way to organize, but here are my top picks:
The My City Mommy Coupon Binder Includes:
Getting Started Guide:
-How To Set Up Your Binder
-How To Use The Shopping Organizer pages
-How To Use The Menu Planner and Price Tracker Sheets
-Coupon Lingo & Abbreviations Explained
-5 double-sided Shopping Organizer pages. Use these to plan out your shopping trips with every detail you could need.
-5 double-sided Menu Planner pages. Use these to plan your menus for each week.
-2 double-sided Price Tracker sheets. Use these to determine what are good, great and stock up prices for the items that your family uses according to your location and specific stores.
-A sheet of adhesive labels. Use these for your pocket dividers and coupon category pages with over 40 preprinted labels and more blank ones for you to customize for a total of 80.
-5 sturdy poly material double pocket, tabbed store dividers. Use one for each of your favorite stores to keep your store ads, coupon booklets and more all together. Each has (1) 3 slot coupon organizer page behind it to keep that store’s coupons
-15 more pages to organize your clipped coupons. You have the choice of 3 slot pages, 9 slot pages or a combination of both. All are clear, highest quality, top loading BCW pages
-1 sturdy plastic 3 ring pocket. It velcros closed to keep unfiled or unclipped coupons secure.
2) Accordion Folder: A large accordion folder is a good choice for those who clip all of their coupons in advance. You can use the various pockets to divide coupons up by category and keep them sorted by expiration date.
A small accordion folder is nice to use to actually bring into the store. It can also double as a great place to store ExtraCare Bucks and Register Rewards earned from CVS and Walgreens, as well as receipts.
Tip: look for accordion folders in the dollar section at Target toward the end of the summer.
3) The Couponizer: This is a fantastic organizer especially for the beginning couponer. The Couponizer is a complete set of tools designed to make saving money easy. It is made up of 18 category pockets for grocery coupons and other coupon and discount category pockets. The Couponizer includes a section for store loyalty cards, a shopping list, a CoupTracker (to keep track of your fabulous coupon savings!), and a pair of scissors. It also comes with a CoupStacker to store coupons that don’t fit into the Couponizer.
There are many options on how to keep your coupons separate and organized. I suggest that you do what feels and works best for you. Be sure to leave a comment below letting us know what you are currently using.
