Coupon Organizing

A few of you have asked about my new coupon organizing system which I mentioned here. I cleaned out a file cabinet drawer in my desk and am using the folders to hold all my coupon inserts. I have a few for Red Plum, a few for Smart Source, etc. and organize them by date. Then I have some for my free coupons (like the ones you see on Freebie Friday), store specific coupons (aka Target, Kroger, Bed, Bath & Beyond, etc.).  Basically all my coupons are right at my fingertips next to a computer I can hunt for deals on, as well as, print internet coupons.

I’m still working on my labeling system (which would take me all of two seconds if I just sat down and did it), so you’ll have to settle for this picture.  I think you get the idea.

I am all about being efficient with my organizing and want to be able to find things fast. If I need to reference the 5/15 SS, I want to be able to find it quickly. So I am going to start labeling the front of all my inserts with the date in black marker. The dates are printed on them, but they are so small and take forever to find and that wastes time.  I want to spend the least amount of time possible while saving the most amount of money possible!

So tell me, how do you organize your coupons? I would love to hear!  And do you watch that Extreme Couponing show?? I’m sorry, but there are some crazies on there!

    i was just thinking about this. i definitely don’t do couponing like you do mainly because i’m so unorganized, but megan over at honey we’re home recently did a series of posts about this and she had some great advice on stuff. tomorrow i’m off to buy a plastic mini accordian file thingy to house all of my store coupons, etc. it’s from the container store and its $3.99 and its exactly what i need. that megan is an anomoly (sp?). her organization is ridunkulous!

    I have never tried this system because I like to have all of my coupons with me for clearance items and unexpected sales. Let me know how it goes though.

    I hardly ever have the right coupon with me. But I have noticed that at Kohl’s if you tell them you had a coupon at home they just give you another one. And usually I only get the dumb 20% off one so it is just better to go in and tell them you forgot it and usually I get a better one anyways. 🙂
