How to Use a Coupon Organizer Effectively


A plastic or fabric coupon organizer is a great alternative if you decide that using paper envelopes is not for you.


They provide plenty of room to store all your clipped and printed coupons, and make categorizing a breeze.

Use a Coupon Organizer to make couponing easier. Step up from envelopes and get serious about organizing to save time and headaches.

Upgrading from Envelopes


Buying a ready-made coupon organizer can help you keep your coupons safe and separate, and it's easy to start using them if you're already familiar with your organizing style from using plain envelopes.


Many of your categories can translate directly. Keep a space near the front of your organizer for coupons for "Free" or "Hot" items, so you don't forget to use them.


If you divided your envelopes by store, you can simply dedicate a pocket in your organizer for each of your favorite stores.


Did you have an envelope for each category of item that you buy often?


A separate one for manufacturer coupons, or for stacking deals you found on GroceryCouponNetwork? Just use a pocket for each envelope.


Plastic Organizers


Plastic coupon organizers are inexpensive and available at many of your favorite stores.


They are made with internal pockets or folders that you can use to separate your categorized coupons while still keeping them close enough that you can access different types of coupons easily.


Depending on how you categorize, plastic organizers can limit your flexibility. The divisions within them are set, so if you are accustomed to changing your categories often, you may need to adjust to using them.


While they are sturdier than envelopes, plastic organizers can wear out over time. They must be held open while you search through them, which can strain and stretch the plastic parts.


Fabric Organizing Pouches


One of the most convenient organizational tools is an organizing pouch. They are made of durable fabric and allow for more flexibility than plastic organizers, while still offering great portability.


Many have button enclosures to keep your coupons safe, and straps that allow them to attach to your cart when you're in the store.


Pouches are available from many sources online. We personally love the Glow Girl coupon organizers. There are several options for color and design, so you can find one that reflects your personal style.


You can easily alter the categories within your pouch, and change them often if necessary.


They also provide space for you to keep additional items; like scissors, grocery lists, and store coupon policies and store's weekly ad circulars.
