The best method I’ve found for coupon organization is the binder method. I started out with a very small 1 inch binder.. way too small. I have at least a 3 inch binder now, if not bigger. Get at least one pack of baseball card holders to start out with. You can find these at Wal-mart near the Pokemon and baseball cards, at the Dollar Tree, and Office Depot. Obviously it depends on what quality you want, but they all work just fine. You will also need a pack of dividers. I personally bought a pack that was already labeled from someone who teaches a coupon class, but you can definitely do it yourself. Here’s the link to her website: http://www.smartspendingresources.com/services.html
The dividers are labeled as follows:
Over the Counter
Paper & Plastic
Pasta & Rice
You can come up with your own labels as you may find that these may not work best for you. Always fold the coupons so that you can see the face value of the coupon and the expiration date. I’ve heard some people say you can double up by putting two different coupons in each slot of the baseball card holders, so where each page has 9 slots, it would hold 18 different coupons. But if you are like me and collect several different papers, you will end up with several of the same coupon and will only have room for several of the same coupon in each slot.
