It is hard to find coupon binders for sale, but you do not need to! You can make your own with these simple steps. There are a few different ways you can organize your coupons. A coupon binder was very popular in the Coupons 101 post so I am going to show you how you can make a coupon binder!
STEP ONE: First you will need a binder! Any old binder will do. If you don’t have one then I suggest Amazon just because you can get your inserts there and that way it will all be on one order. You could also work it into a CVS or Walgreens deal. I strongly suggest getting a zipper binder! If you have kids that throw your stuff around (or if you throw your stuff around) then you will want the zipper to make sure the coupons don’t come flying out!
STEP TWO: Now you need your inserts. You will want to get baseball card inserts and you will need a lot of them. You can get these through Ebay or Amazon. Buying them in a lot from one of these two places will be cheaper than getting lots of small packages from the store. At Amazon, Baseball Inserts are on sale for $4.20 for 25 pages right now. If you go through Ebay then use the link at Ebates before you make your purchase to get an additional 1% back.
STEP THREE: Get Page dividers to mark your coupon categories. You could also add a zippered pocket to keep a calculator, store cards, and a pen. A calculator always comes in handy and keeping store cards in the front of your binder will save you from having to carry them in your purse.
STEP FOUR: Decide on your coupon categories and write them on the dividers. Here are some suggestions:
STEP FIVE: Put your coupons in the baseball holders (you can see each coupon, but if you have doubles or coupons for the same items then youc an put them in the same pouch) and then put the baseball holders in the correct category!
That’s it! There are many people who love this method of coupon organization. It is easy to see all the coupons you have available 🙂
