Coupon Organizer

When I started collecting coupons a few weeks ago, I kept them in a little index card size file.  It looks like this:

Index Card File

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.

  1. Holy cow, Katie! That’s some serious organization! If I had half that determination I might be more inclined to save coupons, but as it is, I can hardly keep up with my shopping list! 🙂 I wonder, are you keeping track of how much you’re saving each month or week? It would be really cool (if not time consuming) to plot it out and see your results.

    • Thanks, sometimes I feel like I’m not organized at all, so it’s nice to know someone thinks so!! As far as tracking it, I would love to! I’ve thought about it several times, I just don’t know how to! I wish I knew of a spreadsheet where I could track my savings, earnings, etc. It would be neat to see the long-term effects!
