Did you spend all morning clipping and printing coupons? Then it's time to get organized.


You can do it easily and efficiently without having to purchase anything but a few paper envelopes, and we can show you how.

Video: How to Organize Coupons with Basic Envelopes

Expert Couponer shows you how to use legal envelopes to sort your coupons at home and then use them at the grocery store.

Tips for Basic Envelope Organization


Using envelopes to organize your coupons is a great choice if you are just starting out on your couponing adventures.


If you're not sure whether organizing by store or by type is best for you, envelopes make it easy for you to try out a few different methods without committing to any, or investing much money.


You'll soon become comfortable with your own organizational style.


Organize by Store


If you know where you plan to shop that day, and what you'll be buying there, you can use an envelope to keep all of the current coupons you have clipped for that store.


You can even order the coupons by imagining yourself walking through the store and encountering each item in its turn. With your envelope and your shopping list, you'll be prepared to take advantage of whatever deals the store has to offer.


Having your coupons organized by store makes it easy to recognize opportunities for coupon stacking, as well.


When you come across a manufacturer coupon for an item you know you'll buy at a certain store, you can go right to that envelope and look for any store coupons you may have also clipped.


Then just keep those coupons together in the envelope you take to the store.


Organize by Importance


Another choice to consider is to keep your most valuable coupons in one envelope.


You don't want to misplace a coupon for a great deal on an item you buy regularly, and if they are in one place, it's easy to check your "Hot Deals" envelope before your shopping trip.


Always keep dates in mind when you organize your coupons.


If it makes more sense for you to store your coupons according to their expiration dates, you can classify your envelopes accordingly.


If you know the price range for an item and think that you should wait a week before using a coupon, then keep an dated envelope so you can easily find that coupon when it is the most valuable.


Regardless of which categories are best for you, envelopes allow you mobility and flexibility.


As you clip your coupons from the Sunday newspaper inserts, you can lay out your envelopes by category and quickly classify the fresh coupons.


However you decide to classify your coupons, be sure to organize your inserts afterward. Label and date them so you can easily find any coupons you need if you hear about them later on GroceryCouponNetwork.
