My Coupon Binder

Erin over at $5 Dollar was just on the Rachel Ray show this week.  I’m a wee bit jealous as I love Rachel Ray, and back a couple of years ago talked with her producers about being on a segment, but nothing ever came of the matter.  Anyway, one of the things Erin tooko on the show was her coupon binder.  She’s showing it off over on her blog  and asked her readers to show how they too organize their coupons.  I too have a binder.

Much like Erin’s I use categories and baseball card inserts to organize my coupons.  My categories are:

  • Baby
  • Beauty
  • Beverages
  • Boxed
  • Canned
  • Condiments
  • Desserts / Snacks
  • Freezer
  • Household
  • Laundry
  • Meat
  • Medicine
  • Paper Products
  • Pet

I do not always take my coupon binder to the store, though I do at times, mainly when I go to the store WITHOUT kids.  If I have my kids I plan ahead using the ads and create a list and envelopes for the stores with the coupons I want to use. I never go shopping without a plan or I won’t save as I could.

Do you coupon? Do you use a coupon binder to organize your coupons?  Please share.

  1. I used to use a small sort of wallet-sized coupon organizer. I liked the convenience of having it always with me in my purse, but as my coupon stash grew, I switched to a binder. I have a combination of baseball card organizer pages and photo pages for larger coupons and store specific coupons, including register rewards for Walgreens and ECBs for CVS.

    I get comments almost weekly about what a neat idea it is–it’s bulky, and sometimes I miss my smaller organizer, but it does help to be able to actually SEE what you have.

  2. I’ve not converted my coupons to a binder yet. But everything else is in my binder, SOOO…. I appreciate seeing this, and understanding how I can incorporate this into the “Kitchen / Meals” section of my Mom organizer. =) I’m going to be blogging about coupons soon, and plan to link to your posts to help explain “how it’s done” and done well. Thanks, Alyssa!

  1. […] at the advice of many of the bloggers and the folks on the forums I created for myself a coupon binder.  This is a huge lifesaver.  Yes, it took me some time to develop mine and some time to put it […]
