25 Days To A More Organized You Day 19: Organize Your Coupons

Of all the questions I get here on PPP, probably the biggest one that comes up is how to organize your coupons.  love saving money, adore using coupons, and will be a penny pincher every single day of my life, but organizing coupons is one of those things that stresses me out too.


When we teach coupon classes, my friend Shannon and I always share that we've probably tried every method of organizing there is out there, so here are a few different ways for you to get started.  Remember though that there is no one “right” way to organize your coupons ~ do what works for you and don't worry about how other folks keep up with their coupons! Here are a few tricks to get you started. . .


See how I've created a coupon binder (this is a lot of work but definitely works for some folks ~ I'm not using it any longer but it might work for you!)

And see how I now (easily!) organize my coupons ~ in 2014 I'll most likely be using primarily printable coupons just to allow me more time with my family and less time clipping. 😉


And finally, check out this simple way to save just by filing coupon inserts by date.


I'd love to know which coupon organizing method you use, and if you've come up with another system I'd sure love to hear about it!

    I have 2 metal lunch boxes. 1 for food and non food items. I do most of my shopping at Kroger. So it is organized according to where things are located by isle in order of when the coupons expire.

  2. I file them by dating the inserts – have 2 manila folders for each month, one for RP and one for SS – P&G also has a folder. When something comes up on sale, I just go back to that date – I don’t clip them until I need them – I’m sure i miss things while in store but it works for me without a lot of time invested 🙂
