  • I read a post from someone before who used a three ring binder with baseball card holders to store coupons. I just recently switched from a small wallet type coupon holder to a binder. It makes it much easier to find coupons than the other thing I had. I can easily flip through the clear plastic sheets which I have divided up into sections to find what I need. The only thing that I don't like about it is that I can't just stick it in my purse & always have my coupons with me because it is too big. I just make sure to bring it along when I go grocery shopping. I keep a small coin purse in my purse that has any restaurant or other store coupons such as Kohls or JcPenney in it so that I always have them with me.

  • I use an accordion like coupon orgnaizer. I sort it according to frozen, boxed, doggie supplies, diapering, house supplies, restaurants, store coupon and a few other things. I like it because it can fit in my purse so I always have it one hand. I found when I kept it anything else I never had the coupons when I needed them which is so frustrating. Usually before I go for a big grocery trip I go through and see if there are any expired and familiarize myself with them a little bit. I think it is hard to figure out what is the best system for you be when you find it you will know that it works. Good luck!!

  • I have a great little basket from Longaberger that I use, it hides my coupons and looks great on my counter!!
