How to Organize Your “Other” Coupons!

Orangize other coupons

For months now, I’ve been trying to come up with a way to organize my “other coupons”. The kind you get in envelopes or booklets in the mail. You know, the ones for take-out, haircuts, menus, your local garden center, oil changes, etc.

This week, my OCD (Obsessive Coupon Disorder) took over! In the past, I’ve tried baskets, a kitchen drawer, piles on the office desk, and folders. Nothing seemed to work out for long.

 

 

 

 

Now, I think I finally got it! A binder! I keep all my grocery coupons in a binder why not all those “other” coupons. I mean seriously, why didn’t I think of this sooner?! Here’s what you’ll need to make your own:

  • One – 3-Ring Binder, (preferably with pockets inside the flaps, to hold booklets)
  • Pocket Dividers (either one or two-sided with pockets)
  • Labeler or Paper Tabs (that come with the dividers)

 

I first sat down and categorizes all the coupons. I came up with 8 categories: Take-Out, Menus, Entertainment, Auto, Retail, Beauty, Home, Misc. Feel free to adapt these catagories to fit your needs.

Then I labeled each pocket folder tab. Inserted the coupons into each corresponding category pocket, and put it all together inside the binder and viola’.  🙂 I have extra pockets if i need to expand and add additional categories.

What I like best about this is, the binder can be neatly tucked away on a shelf in your kitchen or office. It’s easy to keep organized when new coupons arrive and to remove expired coupons. And everyone in the family can use it! I think it’s genius! 😉 Don’t you?
