When I started collecting coupons a few weeks ago, I kept them in a little index card size file. It looks like this:
It was great for what I needed and conveniently fit inside my purse. However, I soon found it hard to go through all the coupons, and have missed a couple great deals because I forgot I had coupons that applied.
After looking at some other coupon lover’s blogs, I decided I needed a coupon binder. I’m glad I decided to go with this method! I have many sections like Food, Cleaning Supplies, Pet Supplies, Beverages, etc. Behind each section I have a sheet protector for that week’s ad and baseball card holders for coupons. Now, all I have to do it flip through the pages to find what I’m looking for! It’s great!
Feel free to leave a comment and ask any further questions about how the coupons are organized!
Plans for tomorrow:
1. Go to CVS and post deals
2. Buy Sunday paper and plan out Walgreens and Kroger deals for the week.
3. Pack and take some boxes to the new apartment.
