How do you file your coupons?

I met some nice folks in Kroger this morning who stopped me to ask if it was easier to file my coupons in a binder. My answer to them was a resounding, yes, YES, YES!!! I save so much more money using my binder, I am able to find what I need quickly and efficiently, and it even makes discarding expired coupons easier.

Here are some of the methods that I've previously tried that have failed for me:
  • expandable coupon holder
  • labeled envelopes (ie. dairy, canned goods, etc)
  • index card box with dividers
  • manila folders with uncut coupons that I would have to find and cut before every trip.

Now I use a recycled college 3-ring binder. It is filled with baseball card holders. I have post-it tabs to quickly find the sections that I need. It is quick, workable, portable, and I love it. Trust me, it's nothing fancy, nothing store-bought, nothing manufacturered specifically for coupons, but it's mine, and it works.

  1. Love the baseball card holders! I used to use the sticky photo pages, but then DH gave me some bb card holders. Love them!
