    Okay, so how do you organize the coupons in the box so when you're shopping you can just pull them out & know exactly what you have?? When I shop I flip through the pages of my binder by grocery store section so I never get home and say, "oh shoot, I forgot to use ___ coupon". I understand it easy to just dump them into a shoe box, but I don't understand how it's convenient to walk around the grocery store with a shoebox full of unorganized coupons.

    Can you explain your system a little more??

    No each company that puts out coupons, SmartSource, RedPlum, & CouponNetwork each have their OWN Required software in order to prevent coupon fraud. It's how they control how many coupons are printed overall and to prevent people from being able to print multiples.

    I tried the binder method but after I had my twins I became overwhelmed with the great size of my binder and just didn't have the space in my cart to use it so I ended up purchasing a small make-up bag with a zip top, made my own labeled separators on my laptop and then just put my coupons behind its designated tab in alphabetical order! Wish I could upload a pic, but theres plenty of room inside for a TON of coupons, the bag is easy to theow in my purse, and the top zip makes it easy and quick to access!

    I dont no how I did so many years with a plastic accordian file type coupon holder
    I 3 month ago was in good will with my friend and found notebook with zippers on them
    so I started with a 1.99-2.99 use 3 ring binder (notebook) with zippers only. clean them
    bought the trading cards inserts at dollar tree 10 sheets for a 1.00 or my walmart does have
    them 25 inserts for 3.49,they also have a new insert there for photo books that I have bought too.
    then I place coupons in the sections they go in. I place them according to dates so I dont miss out on a good coupon. i find this much better when I get to store I open it up and im ready I pull them out as i buy the item.
    so much better get better sales and turn around on coupons and I know have people who ask me to make the notebooks. Ilove the zipper ones as I can keep my pen and pad of paper

    How do you manage expiration dates? This is one of the biggest hassles with coupon clipping. I hate to try to buy something and use a coupon only to find it's expired.

    I have found that buying the Sunday paper and putting wants sales and coupons together is great. But buying more newspapers, more ink and all that clipping sometimes a clipping service is cheaper and easier.

    I love using coupons, it really helps my budget when i compare the savings of using them along with my grocery store bonus card. The one thing i slack on is leaving the binder in my car, i have to remember to place it back into the car on Sunday nights, which is when i clip new ones.
    Also, just wanted to add that some grocery stores have the online "browse our isles" list so you can easily know the isle you will need to get the product from...which, if your like me, getting in and out of there fast is also a good thing!

    thank you for the wonderful posts and pictures on how to get organized! I so want to do coupons, however, I'm one of those who can never figure out how to organize. I'm chomping at the bit to get going now!

    This idea helped me greatly. The accordion file never worked for me.
    I added a clipboard to the setup, (inside the front 'cover'), to hold my printed list form. I use a couple of binder clips to make sure it doesn't slip out.
    I am alone, and I buy mostly store brands, even so, on average, I save at least as much as the tax.

    I am back to the accordion check file using legal sized envelopes for sub-categories. It's lighter and less bulky than the binder method. The most important part is to find a file that expands at the bottom as well as at the top. Office max carries one that is about six dollars.

    This is an awesome idea. I will take a picture of the isle…I hope they don't change around too often! Great idea!!
