HOW TO ORGANIZE A COUPON BINDER !!
Remember organization is key to cutting down on time when couponing. Many use the binder system, as well as myself, so I decided to break it down how I organize my coupon binder.
Below I have listed the items you will need for a binder. I have listed the high-quality items. I learned the hard way by purchasing cheaper items that did not last, so I highly recommend the items listed below. They are very high quality and will last a long time.
What you will need for your coupon binder:
- 3-ring Zipper Binder – there are many to choose from you can get single binder or a dual binder (two separate sides)
- (2) Avery Insertable Style Edge Plastic Dividers, 8 Multicolor Tabs – very sturdy
- Or (2) Avery Big Tab Insertable Plastic Dividers, Multicolor, 1 Set of 8 Tabs (11901) – cheaper version
- Baseball Card Inserts (Place coupons inside here) – Very high quality
- Currency Inserts (I use these for the printable coupons!
I also use the currency sleeves for my printable coupons – then I don’t have to fold them up and take a chance of ruining them. I use the higher quality ones as they will last much longer. I have actually had the same ones since 2011.
Below are the headings that work best for me for my tabs. Of course, you can use whatever works best for you. I tend to use the tabs that are consistent with products in each aisle.
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.
- Future Sales
- Canned Goods
- Packaged items
- Frozen Foods
- Paper Products
- Cleaning Items
- Store Coupons
- Coupon Polices
- Skin Care
- Feminine Care
- Oral Care
- Hair Care
- Baby Products

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. Please note they cannot use printable coupons only Sunday insert coupons.
