How to Organize Your Coupon Binder
Coupon binders can be a great way to keep your coupons organized but you need to decide how you want yours set up and what works for you to have this be effective. Check out Olga’s Binder Method video for a great introduction to the binder method of coupon organization.
Some people go all out and each coupon has it’s own slot, with tabs, in order of expiration dates or alphabetically. This may be too much for you! It is for me so the key is finding your system. There are a couple of options to consider when organizing your binder-
- Do you want each coupon to be displayed? If you do, you will want to use baseball card holders so you have a lot of slots. A typical cost for these is around $5 for 30 pages.
- Do you want to sort coupons by the type of coupon or the product? If you prefer to sort coupons by a brand or general product (for example: cheese), you could use the plastic sheet protectors to hold a group of coupons.
- Do you want to sort your coupons by stores? Tabs can help you separate this out and can be very handy for a quick flip in your coupon binder.
- What do you want to include in your coupon binder? Some people include scissors, calculators, note pads and more!
