Video: How I Organize My Coupons

This is a video about how I organize my coupons. I use the binder method. Meaning… I organize them in a zippered binder. This is the one that I use HERE. I use baseball card holders that I “borrowed” from my son. They were his Pokeman card holders but he got too old for those and was throwing them out.

I cut my coupons out and slide them in the baseball card slots, some coupons I have to fold a little, I like to leave the picture facing forward so I can see what I have. This also makes it easy for me to pull out the expired coupons.

When I go to the store I set my binder in the child seat in front of me in the cart. As I walk down each aisle I am able to flip right to that section to see what coupons I have that match up with the item I am looking to buy. I divide my pages into sections according to the aisle’s you might find in the store. Like, baking, deli, cereal, etc. I also divide a second section according to things you might find in a drug store.

You can print off FREE binder divider sheets HERE. It is a large file to download, but they are REALLY cute.. if I do say so myself!

    I took your couponing class and learned so much! Would you ever have a binder making class? It would be awesome to have everything in one place and do it with a group. You could charge a fee that would cover supplies and your time.

    Nice video. I was wondering what you call the black divider that’s in the front of your binder? Where you put your peelies coupons? Where did you buy it? thanks

      It is really quick because I put them in the card holder and so as I add new ones if I notice any I pull them out.

    Hi Tiffany, can you recommend a binder that last’s for more than 6 months? Mine don’t close after a while and the baseball card holders slide out and everything falls on the floor. It always happens in the store…..and is so anoying.
    Thanks

      I bought one at Office Depot and bought the $3 insurance on it…. that way if anything happens to the zipper, which it has, I just go in and get a new binder.

    Did you pay $28 for your binder or will it go on sale or a cheaper place to find it? Trying to save every bit I can! :)

    I noticed that the Case-It binders are regular priced (Staples) for 19.99. I am going to get one this week! I thought that was cheap. They have all sorts of colors as well.

    OK, I feel really dumb now! I have used a binder for about a year, but never could figure out how to “balance” it in the baby seat of the cart – DUH! Turn it sideways!! Guess I’m a visual person and needed someone to show me how to use it. So that’s my “learn something new each day” tip for today. LOL

    Question: where did you find tabs that stick out past the edge of the baseball card sheets? Any idea of a brand or product number? I desperately need dividers but haven’t found any that are wide enough.

    THANKS for all you do – you just never know when the smallest tip will spark for someone! :D

    Do you have a problem with the binder opening? I have the case-it binder and the one side pops open all the time and my coupons and card holders fall all over the price. It happens often when I am at the store. So frustrating. I may buy a new one, but they are pretty pricey. I also got mine at Office Max last year with the school clearance for $15 I think.

    How do you find time to actually clip the coupons? I use to but it took me forever! So I resorted to the insert organizing. It saves me tons of time, but if i have to clip a coupon in the middle of an aisle, its a total pain!

    i have had binders break down on me several times and then i went on trip with my family and saw that my brother had a cd case that looked like a briefcase it had aluminum corners and tuff binder sheets in side i asked him where had bought and he told me wal-mart but it cost $30 and the smaller cd one was about half that
