I first posted about coupon organization in April of 2009 and boy has my system changed since then!
I used to clip every coupon and put them in protective sleeves in a large binder (see picture below)
I was pretty good with the clipping and then fell behind. The inserts piled up and the task was way too daunting. I used a small fraction of the coupons I as clipping and I began to feel as though it wasn’t a good use of my time.
I switched back to the method I had used prior. I bought a large file box and some manilla file folders. Each week I write the date and the name of the insert on the tag of the file folder and file them in date order in the file box. I have to rely more on match-ups from bloggers and less on how much I know about the coupons I have since I can’t see them as well as I did before. But this has been ok and I appreciate saving the time not clipping. Now I just clip the ones I use as I need them!
What coupon organization method do you use?
