How to Organize Your Coupons: The 3-Ring Binder Method

One of the things I've learned with clipping coupons is that it can become frustrating to keep track of them! I hate when I'm at the grocery store and see a great deal but then can't find the coupon I know I clipped. I've made my own system for storing coupons. With a 3-Ring Binder, I've inserted flat pencil holders that have 3-Ring holes in them. (Available at Walmart for $.97).

I have a couple of them to store coupons that are for cleaning and personal supplies. I have one that holds coupons I know I'll use in a shopping trip. I also have several sheets of clear baseball card holders. You can also use photo holders, CD holders, or disk holders. These work great for organizing your coupons by category (frozen foods, canned foods, snacks, etc.) You'll have to fold some of the coupons but most you can fold so that you can see a picture of the product and the expiration date.

One thing to keep in mind, however, is that the binder is awkward. I constantly have to stop and set the binder across the handle o
n the cart so I can flip through it. I feel like I'm in everyone's way and constantly have to keep moving my cart to make room for other people. You may consider one of the coupon organizers that hang on the handle of the cart, but consider getting a fabric one so that it doesn't flip around the handle because it's so stiff. The last thing you want is for your coupons to dump all over the floor. I personally want to be able to flip through the pages of my organizer so I'm sticking with my awkward binder.

For coupon binders and accessories, see my products on Zazzle.

Here are a few video examples of binder systems for coupons.
