I would like to share with you how I made my coupon binder.  I know alot of you already have a coupon binder, but maybe you can grab an idea or two from mine to make yours better and easier to use.  I used items that I had on hand, improvised and made it work for me.

First, I started with a binder that has a zipper, Consumer Queen suggests that you use this type of binder, so that if you drop it, your coupons won’t go flying everywhere.

Then I divided my coupons by category and typed out labels for the page dividers.

The categories that I use are…

Breakfast-Dairy-Dishes-Drinks-Frozen-Hair-Laundry-Lotion-Paper-Pantry-Pet Food-Snacks-Store-Toiletries-Toothpaste

I used plastic baseball card dividers to put the coupons in. And this is how it turned out…

    I keep my circulars intact, with dates on them, in a binder (in plastic sleeves). After years of doing different couponing things, I found this system works best for me. But the idea of a zippered binder is brilliant! I’m definitely switching to this idea when my current binder wears out. I also like that zippered pocket. I keep a little pencil pouch with my scissors and pencil in my binder, but I could use that pouch for the same purpose. Great idea!

    Love this system. I purchased a Case It binder from Big Lots a few months ago and I have finally found a system that works for me. It has the long shoulder strap on the outside and it is so easy to carry. I also use the baseball card sheets for my store coupons, but in the back of that I have the large sheet protector pages that I put Bed Bath & Beyond coupons, restaurant coupons and larger items. I cannot find the pages for photo albums that will accomodate some of the larger coupons. Where have you found the 4 x 6 sizes on a 8 x 11 page? I purchased zippered pencil pouches also. One I put in the front of my coupons for any strays that I didn’t get around to filing at the last minute and another one at the back of the binder (inside) that I put expired coupons in that I might run across that I missed. Thanks:)
