My Organized Coupon Binder

I was looking for an opportunity to share with ya'll the way that I organize my coupons. I'll first tell you that I started with a 1" floppy binder and within a week of excited coupon gaming, grew out of that "tiny" binder. I've graduated into a much heavier (somewhat burdensome) zippered binder with many more compartments. The only thing I wish I had was a strap to carry it with... maybe I'll make one!

So, here's my "not-so-little" black book.


I purchased this binder at Target for $9.99. And it works great for me! I typically put my coupons for the day's shopping in the front mesh zippered pocket.


When you open the tension-stringed compartement on the front, you see I have my weekly fliers, extra SmartSource, RedPlum, & P&G inserts filed here. If I receive/purchase multiple coupons, I don't always cut them all out, but rather keep them in their magazine or insert in here.


When you open the book, here's what you see. I keep a CVS ExtraCare card and any other discount card (in case I forget mine), scissors, pen, sharpie, calculator, and Rainchecks here. The pink zipper pocket is for any extras that are in process.


I like to 3-hole punch my Rebate Forms and keep them in the front of my binder. It's an easy reference to help me remember the requirements I need to meet to get the rebate.


And lastly, I am a micro-organizer and like to keep my topics very individually organized. I think I have 18 different page dividers!

I use a similar binder. I got mine from my husband. When he attends conferences these are give aways. Ask around to friends and family for ones they have and do not use.
