How to organize
Ok so you've started collecting your coupons what now? You go into the grocery store with an envelope full of the slippery little bugger and cant find the one you need when you get the product. How frustrating is that. This is what I do. I started out with a 1 inch binder. I bought some baseball card holder pages. Each page has 9 slots. I printed off some pages from another blog I follow called krazycoupon lady (the link will get you to the category sheets you can print) http://thekrazycouponlady.com/kclcouponbinder.pdf these are 36 of the most common categories of groceries. I put thos in document protectors and put those and my baseball card sheets into my binder then I started putting my coupons in. I like this way because you can turn to a page in my binder and see the coupons and expiration dates right away. This is a fantastic method but I will warn you I went from a 1 inch binder to a 3 inch binder to now a 3 inch a 2 inch and a 1 1/2 inch binder. I take all three binders in when I go shopping. One binder is my food binder, one is my dry goods that are people oriented, and the last is dry goods that aren't people oriented.
