How do you organize your coupons

When I first started couponing I had a real hard time trying to organize. I want to know what do you all do to organize your coupons and get them ready for the grocery store. Do you use a binder? Do you just label the inserts....?

I used to use a 3 ring binder and put the coupons in the pages by categories when I was getting the paper. But now that 90% of my coupons are ones that I've printed I pretty much use them within 2 weeks so I just keep them in a zippered pencil case in my purse.

Good afternoon:

I have mine in a coupon box that I bought from Refund Cents. It fits in the child seat of the grocery carts and has two compartments (side by side) into which I have made organizational dividers for mine.

I don't necessarily put coupon by alphabetical order, but my categories are: canned, cleaning products (bleach mostly), frozen (mostly fruits and veggies), meats (fresh and frozen), paper products, health & beauty aids (shampoo, conditioner, hair spray, band aids, pantiliners, etc), paper products, and "other" (bug spray, etc.). This is what is comfortable for me.

Your mind might separate products into entirely different categories.

Then I pull out the ones that are store specific - Target into envelopes marked "Target" with all mfg coupons that I will be using at that store, etc.

All those envelopes are kept in front of the box.

But I take all of it to the store each time. You never know when you might run across an unadvertised special.

Have a great day. Norma

I do want to get back to having my printed coupons filed by categories to help find them faster when at the store.
