Want to save more money at the stores, but don't know where to start?? Organizing your coupons is key to saving more money.

If you’re new to couponing, you probably want to use the binder method. This is the method most people use when they are first starting out. This is also a good method to use if you order coupons in bulk from places like Klip2Save, Coupon Dede’s, or The Coupon Clippers. From these places, you can order individual coupons if you want to stock up on a good deal, or inserts.

I recommend using a Case-It Binder. It makes it super easy to organize your coupons. You also need some dividers to organize your coupons. You also need some clear baseball card holders. These are the perfect size for coupons. Make sure you have a good pair of scissors as well.

Once you have all of your supplies, and have your coupons, you can get started organizing your coupons. {If you are clipping full inserts, start with one insert, and open all of them up to the first page. Then take the first page of each insert, stack it up, and clip them. It saves A LOT of time.}

When labeling them, you’re going to want to use basic categories. You’re going to want to keep food separated from “non-food”.

This is how I labeled mine:: 

  • Oral Care
  • Soaps/Lotions/Deodorants
  • Razors/Shaving Cream
  • Hair Care
  • Feminine Products
  • Medicines/First Aid
  • Pet Care
  • Baby Care
  • Beverages
  • Breakfast
  • Frozen Foods
  • Dairy
  • Refrigerated
  • Snack Foods
  • Canned Foods
  • Rice/Pasta
  • Boxed Items

Of course, you can have more categories, or less. Do whatever works for you. Put a few baseball card sleeves behind each divider to put your coupons in them. Make sure you also print any hot printable coupons, and organize them. You don’t want to miss any of those because they make for some great deals too. 🙂
