You want to save money on the things you have to buy so you have all your coupons, online coupons, printable coupons, grocery store coupons... and keeping them organized is not always easy. Before you know it you have a ton of expired coupons you really wanted to use and all that clipping has gone to waste.
Here are some tips to keeping your coupons organized so you will actually use them!
Things You'll Need
- Small plastic photo album
Clip all the coupons you want, and will actually use. Check your local newspapers, online coupon sites and websites of manufacturer's of specific items you want.
I like something smaller than the binder method so I use a little plastic photo album. These albums are the kind you can buy from almost any drug store for less than $2.00.
Separate your coupons by type of items such as frozen foods, cereal, condiments ... etc.
Wtih a permanent marker write on one of the picture pockets what kind of coupons belong in that pocket and place coupons in their corresponding pockets.
Tips & Warnings
- I also keep a excel spreadsheet of what coupons I currently have.
- Be sure to check the expiration date of all your coupons and try to use the ones your really want before they expire.
