There are many different ways to store your coupons. For me the easiest
and best way is a coupon binder. I realize that it isn't the sexiest thing to be carrying around a grocery store, but hey, your saving money and they aren't!
I would only get a binder that has a handle and for me a carrying strap. I have to hang onto too many kids in a parking lot to be carrying this anywhere other than my shoulder. : )
I have tried a few different binders, you will see in the video below that I was using 2 different binders at one time, but for the past 9mo. I have been using one huge binder. I use a Case It brand binder that has 2 rings inside. One is a 2 1/2 inch ring and the other is 1 inch ring.
In Aug. for back to school it is easy to find these binders. Right now it is next to impossible! I can only find them online until next August.
The left section is bigger and holds all my coupons for groceries or things I might find in a grocery store. The right side I use for everything that I buy at CVS or Walgreens. Toiletries and Pharmacy items.
I love this binder because it has so many pockets and zipper bags. I keep store circulars, grocery cards, coupon books and scissors here.
PUT YOUR NAME IN YOUR BINDER! Just incase you loose or forget it in the cart, make sure someone can get it back to you!
I use baseball card holders to store my coupons. I have a few clear CD pages in here but those are just in the back for really big coupons I can't fold. I cut and put all my coupons in at one time. You can watch a VIDEO HERE how I do this. This method is best for me. I love to be able to flip through the pages and see exactly what I have, it also makes pulling out expired's easy. My sections of the binder are labeled like the isles of a grocery store. I sit my binder in the child seat of the cart ( if a kid is there I have to put the binder in the cart) than I as I walk down the isles I just flip to that section of the binder and can easily see what coupons I have.
These are the categories that I have in my binder.
Places to buy supplies. I would estimate it to cost about $40 to put together a good binder.
During the back to school sales try Target, Walmart, Walgreens and the Office Supply Stores.
Baseball Card Pages:
I get mine at Walmart, they are about 35 for $5.98. They are located in the front of the store by the baseball and Pokemon cards. Target has a bigger pack for about $15 but they are always sold out. I have heard that people get them at the Dollar Store but I have looked for a year and have never seen them.
Again, usually Walmart. Just make sure you don't use the paper pages, they will tear in no time. Get the plastic pages. I used a label maker to label mine.
Now the fun part!!
