Works for Me Wednesday: Coupons Part 2

I thought I'd share Part 2 of my coupon organizing... this is the part that might confuse some, but It Works For Me!

I currently use these three organizers for my couponing. The little binder came from Dollar General 6 years ago - it's about to fall apart but I keep taping it back together! It's a handy little tool that I always take with me shopping!

This coupon organizer has categories to store the coupons. I then sort my coupons within the category so all of one type of coupon is together. Example: Dental care, hair products, etc. The blue folder holds store specific coupons and rainchecks along with a slot for Free coupons. I usually sort out my coupons for a shopping trip and place them all in the compartment for that store.
I use this black recipe box to organize my extra coupons. I have it labeled and store coupons that I rarely use and extras... my little coupon binder was busting at the seams until I added this. It's been great to have so much room for my coupons. I can cut out all coupons just in case and have plenty of room to store them.

Currently this system works for me. I like that I only take the small binder and small folder to stores and leave the file box at home. It's somewhat hard to juggle coupons, shop and entertain a toddler. :) Check out Part 1 of my coupon organizing here.


  1. I've used a recipe box FOREVER! But I'm in the process (huge task) of converting them to a binder to take with me when I shop.

  2. i so need to be a better coupon clipper.

  3. I also use an expandable little folder. I used to be a better coupon clipper; and I should be working at it more in order to save some money! I have fallen off the "meal planning" bandwagon in the past month or so which has really hurt our grocery budget! Even my "easy" recipes seem to complicated to make right now....

    I like the idea to use a recipe box!

  4. Hi. I was just surfing around some blogs, and I came across yours. It’s pretty nifty and I’m really enjoying my stay here. I’ve bookmarked your site for daily visits, and I hope you’ll visit me. I’d love to have you. :) Have a great day and I’ll see you around the blogosphere. :)

  5. So do you really save $ clipping coupons? I've clipped in the past, then filed, but I don't take them with me or if I do, I forget to use them. How do you get organized??!


I love hearing from you beautiful readers! Leave some love!
