Below you’ll find my very first (woo!) Vlog (video blog) on how to organize a coupon binder. This is the method I use, please don’t feel like you have to use this method yourself, you don’t. You do what’s comfortable for you. Btw. you can ignore the little “thank you” at the end, not sure what I was doing there.
The binder close up :
If you’re interested in the premade coupon binder I use in the video :
Creating your own binder :
1″ to 2″ thick binder
baseball card inserts (typically come 9 sections per page, 18 total front and back)
Step 1 :
Decide how to section off your binder. You can choose to incorporate different product types together in sections or do separate dividers for each type, it’s up to you and whatever works for you. Here are my suggested divider sections
- Deli / Meat
- Canned Goods
- Cereal/Boxed Dinners
- Frozen Foods
- Refrigerated Foods
- Condiments / Spices
- Desserts / Baking
- Beauty / Razors
- Personal Care (ie. shampoo, soap, lotion, facial, etc)
- Cleaning Products
- Household & Paper Goods
- Pet Supplies
- Store (ie. Publix, Rite Aid, Taget, etc)
Step 2 :
Insert the dividers in and place about 3 to 5 baseball card inserts per section to begin with, you can move these around and adjust the amount as you regularly put coupons in and see typically how many of each product type you have.
Step 3 :
In clipping the coupons, separate the inserts and stack each matching sheet together. it makes it easier and more efficient to clip 5 of the same insert pages at the same time. You can choose to do this by hand with scissors or with a paper trimmer like I show in the video. It all depends on how many you’re clipping as to what method works best.
If you clip the coupons on Sunday or whatever day you’ve aloted to set aside time for, once you’re done carry the coupon binder with you in your car or whatever, so it’s on hand when you have time to stop by the grocery store or drug store. It makes it easier and saves gas when you don’t have to make a special trip just to go grocery shopping or grab some coupon deals.
