Setting up a Coupon Binder

I have had a lot of people ask me how I set up my personal coupon binder so I thought I would add it to my blog. 

Setting up a coupon binder is very simple. Materials needed are; a notebook that zips around the edges, two packages of dividers, one package of baseball card inserts, a pair of scissors, a pen, a pad of paper, a package of cardstock and a calculator (if desired). You will need to cut the cardstock into squares that fit into the baseball card inserts. Doing this will give you the option of using both sides of the card insert.

Next, section your book by how you like to shop. My personal coupon binder’s dividers are labeled; clothing, baby items, toiletries (individual pages labeled sampoo/conditioner, lotion, body wash, misc. toiletries, dedorant, make up, razors/shaving cream, toothbrush/toothpaste, toilet paper/tissue), laundry, cleaning, med/first aide, misc, kitchen, office supplies, produce, drinks, dairy, quick meals, breakfast, snacks, pasta/rice, condiments, baking, meat, sides, bread. On the first divider I use a paper clip to keep my grocery list together for each store I plan to go to. I also have an accordian file at the front of my notebook which holds each store's envelope. I know I am very detail oriented and it shows when I "coupon".
The best way to stay on top of keeping your coupons organized it to cut and file them at the same time, and at the end of every month, clean out your expired coupons. Keeping old coupons in your coupon binder will not help you, but the empty space they give you will.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
