There are many ways to organize your coupons. Here is an explanation of the system I use:
I do NOT cut out all my coupons from the newspaper because I get MULTIPLE papers each week. Instead, I file my coupon inserts by date! Did you know that the date is typed on the spine of the insert? I didn’t realize this for months! So, each week, I buy my papers, remove the inserts, and file them in hanging files, by date & insert name. For example, my labels for the paper I get on September 27th would read:
I have one folder full of 9/27 Smart Source and another for 9/27 Red Plum inserts.
I also have 2 Coupon Binders. One for FOOD items, one for NON-FOOD items. In my coupon binders, I keep any coupons that have been cut out, blinkies, peelies, printables etc. I use baseball card holders to hold all of my coupons and separate each section with a separator page and label. *tip-always be sure your expiration date is showing so it is easy to remove them as they expire*
You can categorize them however you like, whatever is easiest for you (example: beverages, dairy, breakfast foods, pasta & rice etc)
