WFMW: the Coupon Binder

You may recall a couple of months ago that I shared with you how I was organizing my coupons in a coupon box. Weeeelll, due to my growing obsession, I quickly outgrew that method! Thanks to the encouragement of my friend Krista, I am now the nerdy proud owner of a coupon binder. And I am lovin’ it! The binder is really working well for me. Here’s how you too can organize your coupon binder if when you sink to that level of coupon nerdiness. (Click on the pictures for a larger view.)

Start with a zip-up binder:

Get some baseball card inserts and put your categorized coupons in them:

Get some sticky tabs and write your category names on them and stick them to the edge of the baseball card inserts:

Get some 4×6 picture inserts for larger coupons and rebate forms:

Ta-da! You have your coupons clearly organized and they’re easy to carry with you! SO, that’s what’s working for me these days…I can even take all my coupons when I have the kids with me! To see what works for everyone else, check out Works For Me Wednesday at Rocks in My Dryer.

  1. I tried this before and failed miersably. I’ll take a look at yours in person to see what I did wrong. I’ll bring my organizer down too. Maybe we can play poker with our coupons like they did on Mr. Mom.

  2. I read your blog daily. I started a notebook recently and it seems to help the madness. I may have to try the divider suggestion. Keep up the good work. I love you blog

  3. This is a great idea! There are some personal shoppers that have done the same thing where I live and they make them and sell them to ladies for 30.00/40.00 depending on the size of the binder. VERY organized!

  4. This looks good, but I know I would do it for a month and then get tired or my wife will make me feel stupid because of my OCD. Cool idea though. thanks for the visit and comment BTW.

  5. Don’t worry…I don’t feel copied!!! I was honored that your system is so much like mine. I really enjoy y’all’s blog…it’s one of my “daily checks.” I also love the idea of 4×6 inserts. Keep up the good work!!! 🙂

  6. Wow, you are organized. I have a similar system with a binder and pockets. My hubby and I actually bought this computer program eons ago that helps us keep track of our coupons. It’s a little labor intensive with the data entry but the end result is worth it.

  7. This is a fantabulous idea! Just brilliant I tell you. Now can you send over some little elves to actually organize the coupons into a cute little binder for me?
