HOW TO ORGANIZE A COUPON BINDER – EXTREME COUPONING
My binder is a caseit dual 500, which has two separate three-ring sections. One side is 3 inches and the other side is 2 inches. The larger section I keep all my food coupons and the coupon polices and on the smaller section I keep all my cleaning and hygienic product coupons. They have a slightly smaller version called the Caseit 100, which is a smaller version, 3″, 1-1/2″ rings on both sides.
This is my fourth binder and it is the Cadillac of all binders!! It is very high quality. It is well worth the money. I went through 3 others binders before I found this one. Remember organization is key to cutting down on time!! My coupons are kept in baseball card holders. You can get them from Target, Wal-Mart, etc, or off e-bay or Amazon.com HERE! They cost around $13 for 100! I now have higher quality insertable plastic dividers as all the others I have tried have ripped rather quickly. The ones I currently use are Avery Dennison Ave-11201 Avery Style Edge Clear Plastic Insertable Divider – 8 X Tab – 8.5 X 11 – 1 Set – Assorted Dividerfor around $3-4 each!! You will need two of them!!
You can order a complete binder HERE. It comes with the binder (Dual 500 or Dual 100), 25 baseball card inserts, 16 tabs, premade labels, and coupon policies to Walmart, Walgreens, and Rite-Aid!!
Below are the headings that work best for me. Of course, you can use whatever works best for you. I like this the best as I can use my binder at any store and know exactly which section my coupons are going to be in.
I go through my coupons at the beginning of each month to take out my expired coupons. This also cuts down on time as I only do it once a month. Do NOT throw your expired coupons out. You can either check with your local Legion Hall, VFW Posts, or use CoupsforTroops This is a wonderful way to bless our military as they can use expired coupons for up to six months after the expiration date overseas.
