I think I finally did it

January 12th, 2009 at 04:02 pm

Got my coupons organized, that is. The only downside is that my new system won't fit into my purse....Oh well. I am still looking for a better system, but this is the best I have had so far.

The pocket coupon organiziners seem to only have 12-16 pockets. I need about 40. I don't like to have all my HBA in one pocket--I like it further divided down into a pocket for shampoo, one for dental, one for deoderant.... I am not brand loyal, so when I see deoderant on sale, I don't want to look through 50 coupons to see if I have one for that brand, I rather just look through my deoderant coupons.

So, I designed my own. I used photo refill pages that fill a 3 ring binder. I can add more sheets if need be. The are clear so I can see through it. The pockets I am using are 4x6, so they are big enough. So, I will try this for awhile.

We never left the house today, so it was a NSD. Yesterday we went to church, but other than buying the Sunday paper, it too was a NSD, although I will make back the $1.50 I spent on the paper in coupon savings and promotions at Walgreen and CVS. Tomorrow will also be a NSD-in fact, all week probably until I do my shopping run.

    I have the same problem with the health & beauty aids, and the cleaning supplies. I finally decided I'd file them alphabetical within their category. I have a coupon box that goes with me everywhere. The next one I need to put in it's own category is the Dairy section for Pillsbury. They publish the same coupons almost every week!!! I want to tell them to give it a rest, and just reduce the price of everything. I must have 50 coupons for them!!!

    i too use a three ring binder with baseball card inserts. i then have my inserts behind alphabet tabs and all coupons are attanged alphabetically regardless of item/brand/aisle/category. that way i can take it to any store and find what i need.
