Coupon Organization

1

My latest grocery shop was a huge success and I saved 50% on my groceries and I didn't purchase anything I didn't need!  Best part is it was so easy so I thought why  not share it with all of you.  I haven't been actively couponing for very long so I'm not an extreme couponer by any means but I do manage to save a decent amount of money.

To get started is easy, at first I used what I call an envelope system and divided by coupons into categories: food, personal and pharmacy, baby and kids, household (toilet paper, paper towel, cleaning supplies), mail in rebates, and other.  As I collected the coupons I would throw them in the corresponding envelope, this got a little overwhelming because I was always combing through a huge stack of coupons to get to what I wanted.  So my new system is this:

I went to dollarama and bought sports card holders ($1/pk of 6), and plastic sleeve ($1/pk of 2), I had the scissors and envelopes so pretty inexpensive to get organized.  From there I just started putting “like” coupons together.  The coupons that wouldn't fit in the holders I put into corresponding envelopes.

Hope that helps you get started on organizing everything!

I’d love to hear from you.  Comment with me on Twitter or  Facebook!

  1. Both my blogging partner and I have been couponing for a while now! It is SO addictive!!! We love to see our savings rise. I use to use a binder like that but have switched to saving the whole insert now. I found that it actually was a little less time consuming to cut them when I need them but I also miss having coupons on hand when I NEED something.

    If only the day had 2 or 3 extra hours! hehehe
