I’ll be speaking with Norma Holland this morning (follow her on twitter, she’s fabulous) about how to save money at the grocery store by organizing a coupon binder.
Being organized is the key to success in couponing, so if you have resolved to finally save some money in 2013, getting your coupon binder organized is a great way to start.
First, you need to gather your materials. Here is what I use:
- 3″ size 3-ring Binder OR a Zipper Binder
- Baseball card holders
- Photo Album inserts
- Plastic 3-hole punch folders
Set it up:
Create 5-6 sections using the dividers. In each section, place two baseball card pages and 2 photo album inserts. These are for coupons of various size.
2 or 3 of the Plastic folders go in the front of the binder. I use these for store coupons for each specific store I shop at.
Place 3 of the plastic folders in the back of the binder. These are for your whole coupon inserts: Red Plum, Smart Source, and P & G.
- I organize my sections by the layout of the grocery store I shop at the most.
- A Zipper binder is helpful if you drop your binder, then the contents won’t fall all over the floor (or more likely, the parking lot).
- I only clip internet printables, coupons for items we use regularly, and coupons that I know match with a sale that week.
