Thrifty Thursday: Coupon Organizer and Easter Savings

When I started my couponing, I started with a coupon accordion folder that had only 8 sections in it. It worked out well at first but as I obtained more coupons, it became flooded and I could not see what I had and my coupons became expired. So since my coupons have increased, I have moved to a coupon binder. I have not moved up to taking my complete binder to the store yet, but I sort and take my coupons to the store with my original coupons folder that fits into my purse.To do some recycling I have, used my old wedding planning binder as my coupon binder. My binder is set up following the Krazy Coupon Lady suggest.

My binder is set up per their categories. Click here and you can download the Krazy Coupon Lady  directions on how to set up your binder.

If you do not like their set up, you can look at Mom Saves.com to see how they can set up a coupon binder.  I am sure that there are many ways to set up a binder or organize your coupons, you just have to find what works for you.

Thanks for sharing this! I've been thinking of switching to a binder and using my old wedding one is a great idea. I'm outgrowing my regular coupon holder. I've got to many coupons!!

@ Jules: No problem. Glad I could share.

@ Faith: It just makes you mad when let a coupon expire.
