Coupon Binder 101 – Store Your Coupons!
Welcome to Part 2 of “Couponing 101”! Today, we talk about using a coupon binder, which is my favorite way of storing coupons.
In Part 1, I posted several different ways to get coupons. So now you’re asking me this question:
hey, Coupon Gal, I got the coupons – now how do I store them?”
I store my coupons in a coupon binder. I‘ve tried many different ways of storing my coupons, but I find that using a coupon binder is the easiest and most professional way to do it!
The zippered binder is the best, for it will prevent your coupons from falling out. Haven’t you ever had the experience of being on the checkout line, and your coupons just fall all over the place? That’s not going to happen anymore!
You will need the following items to start:
- A zippered binder – two of my favorite brands are from Case-It and Five Star (and happily, CVS is starting to carry BOTH brands)!
- Loose leaf dividers and tabs. File your coupons according to the way YOU shop. My coupon binder has dividers for various food and beverage products, household products, and personal items. In the front of the binder, I also have a section for store coupons (CVS, Whole Foods, Rite Aid, and the like), and a section for “Future Sale Coupons”. In the “Future Sale Coupons” section, I have coupons for sales that are coming up within the next several weeks. You can check out up to 3 weeks of sales in advance from CVS, RiteAid, and Walgreens.
- You will also need sheet protectors in order to store your big coupons and your coupon policies!
Once you get all that, have fun! You will NOT regret buying a zippered loose leaf binder for your coupons, and I personally guarantee it!
