Family Everything Binder but they were all mixed up and at times a hassle to sort through. Finding an easy way to organize them was key. I got help on the blog Home Storage Solutions 101. There I found tips on clipping, organizing and using my coupons.
I labeled them and organized my coupons in the following categories
Baby - this includes all baby food and beverage coupons, diaper and wipes coupons and anything else that is specifically for Alexa
Breakfast - Cereals, pop tart, breakfast bars and Toaster Strudel coupons made it in this envelope
Beverages - Anything you can drink
Pets - Food coupons for Penny and Smokey and also kitty litter coupons can be found here.
Paper and Stationary - All paper products including toilet paper and paper towels, napkins, paper plates etc. I also had a coupon for Bic pens so I put it there because you use a pen to write on paper. I know my logic can be scary.
Personal - All personal care items like shampoo, deodorant and toothpaste. I also added medicine coupons in this envelope.
Pantry - If the items go in the pantry, the coupon went into that envelope.
Frozen - Any frozen food except Toaster Strudel since that went into breakfast.
Cleaning - All cleaning supplies and also air freshers.
Dairy - Milk, cheese, yogurt and eggs. Really everything in the dairy aisle at the store.
Refrigerator - Everything that goes in the fridge that's not dairy. This would also include meats and poultry.
Here is my finished folder. I decided that I wanted a little color to brighten it up so I pulled out my markers and just started to doodle all over the front. I plan to keep this in my Family Binder like before but now I can easily figure out which coupons I have each week.
If you clip coupons how do you organize them? Feel free to leave a comment and share your coupon organizing strategies.
Remember I shared on Valentine's Day that Jim and I made our gifts to each other. Well I posted Jim's gift a week ago, but never shared what he made me.
Isn't it beautiful. Jim knows I love to store things in little boxes. My beautiful new box is sitting proud on my scrapbook table and once I finish eating the yummy candy he filled it with, I will use it to store all the small keepsakes I like to collect for my scrapbooks from our adventures.
Until next time,
