I’m often asked how I keep up with all my coupons. Everyone has a different way that works for them. That’s the key. Keep your coupons where you can find them.
So here it is……my system.
Step 1 – Big pile on the floor/counter. Straight out of the newspaper ready to cut.
Step 2 – Divide them by category and file in the accordion style folder
Step 3 – File in notebook (I use baseball card holders that my husband had in the closet. When I first started, I used an old photo album.) I sort by category (laundry, toothpaste, shaving, hair, snacks, diapers/pads etc…..) Another friend has hers sorted alphabetically by brand.
Step 4 – Into the coupon bag ready for shopping.
Why do I have so many steps? Because I refuse to spend all my life sorting coupons. I sort them into steps as I have time – sitting in the car line, waiting in the doctors office, watching a movie…….
Do what works for you. Just make sure you can find them when you need them!
Over the next few days I’ll show you how others sort their coupons! Then you can choose what works best for you!
