    I have plastic pencil holders in differnet colors. One color for each store I frequent. I clip coupons, do not save the entire mailer, and put them into the color holder of store I will purchase at. Then I have one big container for extra/later date coupons.

  2. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I have two of the coupon holders I get from the dollar store. One has baby + drug store items. The other has grocery + restaurants and services. I changed the labels to match the categories I cared about. I carry both with me when going shopping. I also clip my coupons each week and organize them within the current week. If there was an awesome organizer, I’d pay up to $5 for it.

  3. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    Sound to me like you are planning on MAKING a coupon organizer to sell?! If so, go you! I absolutely LOVE my zippered notebook with clipped out coupons in baseball card protector sheets filed by category. SO easy to find what I need. I have a thousand or more coupons in it. I spent $20 on mine and would spend no more than $30 for an awesome one. Now if someone were to make them customized- OMG. That would just be awesome. Can we say DAMASK? πŸ˜‰

  4. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    OK, so I found a small coupon organizer and a large organizer in Target’s ‘Dollar’ section a few days ago and have started using that. In the small one, I put ALL of the Target coupons in one section (since you can only use them there) and then divide up the rest into categories (I clip the inserts to fit in my organizer). Then in the large (8 1/2 x 11) one, I print off every day’s ‘Hip to Save’ announcement to be able to refer back to. I only spent $5 for both!

  5. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I file the whole insert and then clip the ones I need for that shopping trip and take them with me. I like how easy it is to file them initially. I wish it didn’t take quite so long when I am preparing to go to the store but it isn’t too bad. My biggest complaint is that since I don’t have all my coupons with me when I shop I miss out on deals like clearance items.

  6. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    Oh and on top of my notebook, I also have one of those flexy coupon holders with different categories in which before I go to the store, I gather all of my needed coupons, print off any info I need to bring with me (deals and match-ups) and file it under the store I need. I have a tab for each store that I frequent. So I bring my notebook with all of my coupons and a smaller coupon organizer with each store’s coupons and deals all ready to go.

  7. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I have the old checkbook size accordian file. I am new to couponing (2 months) and have recently gotten to the point that I’m wondering if they will all fit. I clip and file my coupons each week. I prepare in advance and pull the ones I will be using at each store but I do carry the rest in my purse in case I find a good deal.

  8. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I have a 5×7 accordian coupon organizer. But, it is really too small. I like the zippered notebook ones with baseball cards in there. My friend has that and it wonderful.

    I also have a notebook with pockets that I use for my CVS, Walgreens, Jewel, etc coupons.

    Love your BLOG!

  9. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    Alright let’s see if I can help
    1. How I organize my coupons-
    Right now, sadly, just in a paper envelope. I have them grouped together though; body/health (lotion, shavers,facewash, toothpaste, medicines, etc.), food, cleaning products. I write what coupons I currently have on the outside of the envelope and cross them off when I use them
    2. What I like about my method- It’s simple, and I almost always have it with me because it’s in my purse.
    3. What I don’t like-
    It’s not a great organization system- though their separated and next to similar coupons, they are all stuffed together for the most part.
    4. How many coupons I take with me- Depends on the deals during the week and what I need. I carry all the coupons I have with me all the time. But I like having lots of choices! You can never have too many coupons πŸ™‚
    5. Clip coupons or whole inserts- I clip just the coupon so it fits in my purse better.
    6. How much would spend on a coupon organizer- $1.00 (What? I’m cheap, why do you think I’m on here? πŸ™‚
    Hope this helped!

  10. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I have a mini index divider I organize my coupons in. It holds a lot of coupons and I bring the whole thing with me when I go to the store-you never know when something will be on a hidden sale or clearance! I like it divides everything, but it doesn’t have enough dividers that I’d like. I clip all coupons and organize them. I wouldn’t spend too much more than $10 on an organizer.

  11. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I use a big zippered binder with baseball card inserts separated by categories. I clip all mine and have several hundred in there. I keep them all together in that binder. As I select items, I move the appropriate coupon to a folder pocket in the front. It also has some accordion style folders that I use to keep rebate forms, receipts etc in. I paid about $15 for it and would probably pay no more than 20-25 for a really cool one.

  12. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I am currently keeping the inserts by date, in hanging file folders in a file box that I take with me everywhere I go. Its really easy to flip to a coupon for a deal I want to do, however, I am outgrowing the box rapidly. So I plan to make some changes-Im still going to keep the inserts by date but I think I am going to clip coupons that I KNOW I will use, and keep them in a binder similar to what Ambra described above. These I will take with me and into the stores so I dont have to worry about missing any really great deals!! I would be willing to spend about $25-30, especially from someone like you πŸ™‚ instead of Walmart or Amazon LOL!

  13. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I have a binder with baseball card plastic pages. I organize by category, food, beauty, meds, etc. I pretty much know where most things are since I put them in there. I don’t clip everything, just the ones that I know I need right away. The rest of my inserts I file away in a file tote by date. Sometimes I take all my coupons with me into a store unless I am going for just a specific list, then I just take in a small wallet size coupon holder with my list and the coupons I need. My system works okay for me although my binder does get too full with IPs and they do tend to fall out some when they get too full.

  14. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    How do you organize your coupons?
    -In catagorized envelopes in a rubbermaid (shoe box size) box.
    What do you like about your coupon organization method?
    -It’s the best I have come up with so far, but it does keep changing!
    What don’t you like?
    -It’s big enough to be too noticeable to take to the store. πŸ™‚
    Approximately how many coupons do you carry with you to the store?
    50 or more.
    Do you clip all your coupons or do you file the whole inserts?
    -Clip them.
    How much would you be willing to spend on a coupon organizer?
    -$20 or less? I am not sure.

  15. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    1. in a binder seperated by category ie shaving, dairy, bread, frozen snacks, teeth, etc in 3.5″ x 5″ photo holder sleeves
    2. I like that I can find coupons pretty quickly and that I can easily take the binder to the store
    3. My 3″ binder is pretty jam packed…okay, it’s busting at the seams.
    4. every coupon I have, but I have no CLUE how many that would be….thousands???
    5. clip most of them unless I have a lot of one insert and then I’ll clip out coupons from say 6 and leave the rest whole in case I need later.
    6. $15

  16. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    hey Abby C – if you have a publix nearby you may be able to use those target coupons there!

  17. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    * How do you organize your coupons?
    I use a ‘Trapper Keeper’ style binder, with a zipper.

    * What do you like about your coupon organization method?
    I use clear trading card sheets and have them organized in alphabetical order. I love how easy it is to find the coupon I’m looking for…no digging!

    * What don’t you like?
    The binder is super heavy and hard to lug around when I also have to carry a diaper bag and a 25lb baby, lol.

    * Approximately how many coupons do you carry with you to the store?
    All of them. I carry ALL of my coupons everywhere I go.

    * Do you clip all your coupons or do you file the whole inserts?
    I clip each one. It’s a pain in the rear but it’s a lot easier to pull one out if I find an unadvertised deal.

    * How much would you be willing to spend on a coupon organizer?
    About $20.

  18. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I have no organization at all. I have some in envelopes that are now badly torn and some in paper clips. I do cut them out, and I think I try to put the coupons I think I will be using in an envelope and I take 2-3 envelopes in a store with me. Makes it very time consuming when trying to find a coupon as I am sure that goes without saying! So, I don’t like anything about my organization as I have none! I am new at this tho..that is my excuse!

  19. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    P.S. And under $10 would be more like it for price. Although, if it would be really good & stay around a long time, it might be worth more.

  20. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    -I started with the baseball card sleeves, but I found it too hard to add coupons. I loved being able to see what I had though. Now I have an expanding note card holder that is stuffed to the max. Coupons are alphabetized and when I am going to use a coupon at a certain store, or when a coupon is for a specific store, I put it in a small white mailing envelope with the store’s name on it.
    -I like having the individual envelopes for stores, so when I know I am getting something that week, I just put it into that envelope, and it is really easy to grab that envelope at the doors of the store, and go shopping!
    -I don’t always know what I have So hard to be flipping through to see “Do I really have that coupon?” I am working on putting together an excel spreadsheet listing my coupons, how much they are for, what requirements it has, and when it expires so I can more easily see what I have left.
    -Depends, if I am going in and want to get out within x amount of dollars, I take only what I need. Grocery store or general wandering, the whole thing!
    -I clip all of mine, although I *really* love when you date the inserts the coupons come from.
    -Cost, wow, don’t really know there. If other people rave about it, $30. If it is something I am just trying to see how it works, $8. I hate trying things and finding out I don’t like it. Would love to test drive things and then return or pay full price. (like that is ever going to happen).
    that’s my two cents!

  21. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I use a zippered three ring binder. The front cover has pocket that I store a calculator, scissors, pen in. Inside is a small accordion file that I store sale ads, envelopes for rebates, and receipts. Next is lot of baseball card holders. I put the coupons in these, they are divided by categories.

    I have a note pad as well. I make a list for each store, pull out the coupons and place in an envelope. I take the envelope in the store. Occasionally I will take the binder in with me. It depends on the amount of time I have.

    What I disliked was the amount of time it took to start the binder method. It was a lot of trimming and sorting. ItΒ’s not so bad now. Still takes a good hour on Sundays to cut and file them all.

    It is easy to see what I have coupons for. I donΒ’t have to dig and shuffle like I did with an accordion file.

  22. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    How do you organize your coupons?
    I bought a coupon organizer at the dollar store it is basically a mini accordian file, I keep all of them in here except grocery ones etc…
    What do you like about your coupon organization method?
    It is small and easy to carry on the go or throw in the car or purse and I have all the different stores in there that can be good or bad.
    What don’t you like? Sometimes it is a lot to go thru at the store but sometimes I can grab the ones I know I will use ahead of time.
    Approximately how many coupons do you carry with you to the store?
    50, but maybe pull like 5 or 6 to try and use
    Do you clip all your coupons or do you file the whole inserts? CLIP!
    How much would you be willing to spend on a coupon organizer?
    5.00 max, depending on how cool it is! πŸ™‚

  23. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    * How do you organize your coupons? I have two small coupons organizers. One for food, one for non-food. They are them divided into categories.
    * What do you like about your coupon organization method?
    I know exactly which category to look in to see if I have a specific coupon.
    * What don’t you like?
    That they’re getting old and I need new ones. LOL!
    * Approximately how many coupons do you carry with you to the store?
    I carry both of my coupon organizers to the store, in my purse.
    * Do you clip all your coupons or do you file the whole inserts?
    I clip coupons.
    * How much would you be willing to spend on a coupon organizer?
    It depends. I’d say no more than $10.

  24. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I clip coupons and file them according to genre in a soft pencil case. It’s too full so it doesn’t close. The dividers are home made and fal;ling apart. I definitely need a coupon organizer. Don’t want a big binder. Any suggestions.

  25. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    *I have a binder with baseball card inserts.
    *I organize my coupons by what aisle they would be in.
    *This method is so easy because you can actually see all your coupons when you are walking through the store. I have tried the envelopes but it takes way to long.
    *There is nothing that I don’t like about this method.
    *I usually carry my binder with me and when I put something in my cart I take the coupon out of the sleeve and into an envelope.
    *I think its easier to clip all your coupons when you get them.

  26. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I’m excited to hear about what’s going on. I must check your site a million times a day for all the deals. lol

    How do you organize your coupons?
    I have a small organizer with slots/dividers that I got from walmart. In there I keep the coupons that I clipped. I only clip/cut out the internet coupons and coupons that I thought I was going to use at the store but didn’t. I also have 1 folder that has envelopes for each store and I put a large post-it note with what I plan to buy listed and then the coupons in the envelope. If I don’t use them then I file them in my organizer from walmart when I get home.

    What do you like about your coupon organization method?
    That I write the date on each insert and then put them in a folder, then I put all the folders in a purse. That way I can take it with me if I notice something on clearance.

    What don’t you like?
    I look weird carrying in 2 purses. And my coupon purse is a bit heavy. But I deal with it to get FREEBIES!!!

    Approximately how many coupons do you carry with you to the store?
    All

    How much would you be willing to spend on a coupon organizer? Not sure I like my set up now but if I found one that worked for me – maybe $10.

  27. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I currently have a 5×7 according style folder that I use for my coupons. I clip the coupons first & then seperate them into 10 different catergories. This worked alright @ first, but it is currently stuffed(can’t close it) & I have a huge pile of coupons(Kraft & kelloggs) that I can’t fit inside.

    My system is organized well, but way too small. I would love to have a zippered folder with some kind of pockets, baseball card holders(not sure what yet). I think I could spend around $10 for one that meets all my needs & would give me some room to grow as well.

    I take all of my coupons in everytime, which is a bit cumbersome lately, but I have missed out on too many unadvertised deals not to.

    Hope this helps…dying to know what your up to!!

  28. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I put them in big birthday card size envelopes, each envelope is labeled by catagory (ex. frozen,dairy,etc.) I clip coupons so that I can organize by category. I usually put all the coupons for a particular grocery trip into one envelope. I don’t like the fact that 12 envelopes with coupons is pretty bulky and i can’t carry them in for just in case I find a good deal. On a coupon organizer, i’d probably spend about $10.

  29. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I file mine in a 3 ring binder using baseball card inserts. I have them separated into categories and divided by divider sheets. I also have two pencil holders in the front of my binder. One for restaurant coupons and the other for coupons I am using while shopping. I carry my binder with me 24/7 and I am not kidding. It stays in my van when I am not updating it.

    I could really use a different binder. I would like one with handles. I would pay no more than $25.00 with a coupon πŸ™‚

    I clip every single coupon.

  30. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    i have a coupon binder. it’s kind of a pain to take to the store sometimes cause it’s so heavy and thick, so i don’t always have it with me and i miss out on getting really good deals. but it’s nice cause you get to see all the coupons. i’d spend about $20 on a new coupon binder if it’s unlike something i already use.

  31. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I spent a little more than I should have on my organizer, but I use it almost everyday so I decided it was worth a little extra $65. I saw other binders that were less expensive, but did not have the pockets I needed for calculator, etc. I use baseball card holders in a zip up binder by category with a handle. I cut MOST of my coupons and carry them with me whereever I go. The ones I don’t clip, I keep in the whole insert and file by week in case later I need something and I can find it quickly. I like carrying all of then with me becuse you just never know when and where you will see something you need..clearance or unadvertised specials. Jocelyn

  32. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I store my coupons in a rubbermaid container in envelopes with tabs on them and then they are filed alphabetically. I clip all my coupons each week and file them. Before going to the store i pull out the coupons i need and that is all i take with me. I like my method, it works for me. Love your site by the way!!

  33. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I file all the inserts by date and then when I need a particular coupon, I look on the coupon database. Coupons that I print out from the computer, go into my purses. I keep them in one of two envelopes. Each envelope is divided in two (food/paper or beauty/household products). The only thing that I don’t like about my system is that if I see something that I had not planned on buying, there is a good chance that I won’t have the coupon with me. I LOVE YOUR SITE. YOU’RE AWESOME!! Thanks.

  34. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I’m cutting and pasting what Christine above wrote, bc we use an almost identical method! I use a big zippered binder with baseball card inserts separated by categories. I clip all mine and have several hundred (a couple thousand?!) in there. I keep them all together in that binder. As I select items, I move the appropriate coupon to a little pocket in the front. There is another pocket in front where I clip “use quick” coupons like doubles or one-week store coupons. It also has some accordion style folders inside where I keep rebate forms, receipts, current store flyers, etc in. I paid about $30 for it (ack!) but don’t regret the expense because I LOVE IT SO MUCH!

  35. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I have a midsize cosmetic bag in which I place envelopes labeled health & beauty, food, household etc. The coupons that I receive from my friends I keep in a clear, large portfolio (along with scissors) with the dates marked on them so that I know where I should look after reading your blog. I put padfolio in a canvas bag and keep in the car in case I find a deal when I’m in a store.

    I do like the fact that I have all my coupons with me so that I don’t have to make a second trip
    I dislike having to dig through both bags to get what I need.

    I guess $10. Although I view Qs as money, I don’t really want to spend very much on the carrier, but I’m open to the possibilities if it will save me some time.

  36. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    Big zippered binder with food categories for the grocery stores.

    A smaller binder for Wags/CVS trips (divided by hair, lotions, soaps, paper good etc).

    I keep both in my car at all times.

    Am trying one month of not clipping coupons and organizing in a file box by date. I print out the coupon index for each insert from http://www.taylortownpreview.com and keep it in the front of each folder.

  37. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I use a 3 ring binder with baseball card sheets. I have it divided by category, food, teeth, lotions, shampoos, etc….I like it because I can see every coupon. The down side is that it is big and bulky. I clip every coupon and file it immediately into my binder. I also have a small accordian style filer that I carry into the stores with me. Sometimes I take my big binder with me to the store in case I find good clearance items. I like my coupon system but I would be willing to try something new for around $20. Can’t wait to see what you’re up to!

  38. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I use baseball card sleeves in a large binder….I have several categores (dry goods, frozen goods, fridge goods, personal, and household…and then I organize within the categories by LIKE item…toothpastes, deoderants, etc…)I LOVE being able to flip through my book and see nine or more coupons on each page.I clip all my coupons so if I find a good deal in the store I’m ready to go with what I need. I would be willing to spend 25 dollars (about what it cost me to set mie up)

  39. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    How do you organize your coupons?
    Catagorized in a rubbermaid (shoe box size) box. Each Catagory is seperated by an index card (dairy,meat,paper products,etc…)

    What do you like about your coupon organization method? It’s easy to file my coupons…NO individual pockets like the baseball card holders.

    What don’t you like? It’s not small enough for me to carry into a store so I have photo/scrab booking file w/ individual pockets that I carry with me in the stores. I have a different pocket for each store I visit!!! πŸ™‚

    Approximately how many coupons do you carry with you to the store? Up to 10 per store..sometimes.

    Do you clip all your coupons or do you file the whole inserts?
    I’m a clipper!!

    How much would you be willing to spend on a coupon organizer?
    Around $10! I paid $1.00 for my rubbermaid box at the dollar store and my friend gave me the photo file that I carry with me in the store. Hope this helps you.

  40. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I use a envelope that has completely ripped apart because my stash has gotten soooo big – thanks to your awesome site!!! I need a new system!! The only thing I like about my system is that I have all my coupons with me and can find one in about 3 hours if I spot a good deal! (haha!) And I definetly clip every coupon because you don’t know when you are going to get something free or close to! I would spend between 10-15 bucks for a good organizer (it will help me save more money in the long run!)

  41. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I have the typical coupon organizer that you can buy at like walmart/target that has the little sections to file coupons by letter group. I do clip the coupons most of the time… I would like to save the whole insert, but I don’t have any place to keep them… without them getting in our way. I typically take all of the coupons I have to the store with me… but I am beginning to organize them and paperclip just the ones I need to the list for that particular store. I like that I always have mine in my purse… I don’t like that it takes a while to go through them all.

  42. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    1. How I organize my coupons-
    I currently have the couponizer. I also have all of my coupons on an excel spreadsheet listed by category, item, how many I have to purchase to fulfill coupon, amount off, expiration date and how many of that coupon I have on hand. I print off a new sheet each week removing any used or expired coupons and adding the new coupons for the week.
    2. What I like about my method- It is organized by category and there is a section for everthing even rebates and a place to store coupons to be used when you check out.
    3. What I don’t like-
    My only complaint is actually my fault that I need to put them in alphabetical order so I can get to them faster.
    4. How many coupons I take with me- I take all of my coupons with me. I do however have an envelope for each grocery/department store I visit and I place the shopping list with that weeks coupons in it. I find this helps me only buy what is on my list and if I happen to run across a good deal I have the others on hand.
    5. Clip coupons or whole inserts- Clip
    6. How much would spend on a I spent $20 on mine and would want to stay in that range.

  43. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I organize them by grocery store/Walmart rows. It makes it very easy to know what I have, especially with a 4 & 1 year old ‘helping’! I have two coupon file holders, one for food coupons one for h&b, baby, cleaning & misc. Together they take some space, but I carry a diaperbag around so they are always in there. I clip, carrying the whole insert is too much work. I think I spent a total of $7-8 on my folders.

  44. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    Organize: presently in envelopes in big plastic bin w/lid.

    Likes: I can sort of see, organized according to category – works well IF you don’t have lots of coupons.

    Dislikes: I can’t see everything easily, having to sort, resort, resort… overwhelming. I’m planning on going to a binder system, but waiting until school supplies go on sale!

    # of coupons: Sometimes just the ones on my list sandwiched between the ‘wasted’ paper of Internet printables. Mostly, my entire box.

    Clip all or File Whole: Used to file whole, but like the clip method better. Get my kids to help. Sometimes just clip what we know we use, file the rest until needed.

    Organizer: so that’s your secret! I guess no more than $25. But do you have a coupon for it? πŸ™‚

  45. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I have a file box(like for index cards), and i added dividers with tabs(food, baby products, cleaning products, household items, Target only, Walgreens only, Cvs only, etc. etc.), then behind that divider i have envelopes for each subcategory(Baby products: bath products, diapers, food. Food: Boxed Food, Condiments, Rice & Pasta’s, drink, candy & snacks, cereal.)
    I like it because i can pull out an envelope like boxed foods and know that i will find the mac n cheese coupons there.
    It’s very easy to find what i need.
    I also like that it’s small enought that i can bring the whole thing in with me where ever i go.
    That’s when i find the best bargains.

    I don’t like, because my box is so full with internet coupons, that it’s starting to bust at the seams.
    I would like for it to be a tad bit bigger, but if it were much bigger, i wouldn’t feel comfortable carrying it in with me everywhere.

    I cut all coupons every sunday and file them at the same time.

    I would be willing to pay $10 or so for a really awesome one( good size, well organized, made to last).

    Thanks,

  46. Collin (Mrs. Hip)

    I have tried many methods of coupon organization. I used a plastic box at one time with dividers that I labled myself. It was bulky and hard to carry. Then I tried the zipped binder method. It was ok, but I found that a lot of the coupons did not fit in the baseball card slots. So, now I have an organizer that looks like a purse and is SUPER CUTE! It only has 12 dividers though. I have 2 of them, one for groceries and one for HBA items. I could use more dividers, but am otherwise very happy with it.

    I use a zippered 3-ring binder w/4×6 clear insert pages ($3ish for 10pgs/60 inserts, Walmart). I clip most coupons but file remaining insert in case a deal comes up with a random item i didn’t clip.

    When I shop: I take my list w/ coupons pulled and placed into a small accordion style coupon organizer that fits in my purse, each tab is by store and contains only the coups i’m using on that trip + ECBs/RRs/catalinas/rainchecks. Easy to pull em at the register when i’m ready, and i also take the binder in a tote bag for all those unexpected goodies (i.e. Wags clearance endcaps!)

    The main thing i don’t like is how easily coupons can fall out the top of the sleeve if the binder tips. Hasn’t happened yet, but i’d freak if all those spilled on aisle 4 one of these days…

    Cant wait to see what you’re up to!

    I am a 66 year old woman who has always used coupons but you have made it fun, I check several times a day and have gotten some real good deals and just want to thank you. I save the entire mailer. Looking for new ideas. Thank you, thank you.

    I have white #10 envelopes separated into about 20 different categories, and i cut the tops off tissue boxes and store them the envelopes in there, they fit perfectly. So, I clip all the coupons from the weekly inserts and then organize into the categories. Once in the envelopes, they are in chronological order with the oldest insert coupons in the back and newest in front. I go thru them 2x a month to discard the expired ones. Works best because if you need to compare coupons from different brands for the same item, they are all in one envelope. I would pay 20 bucks for a really nice organizer.

    I have a square shaped plastic container with all my coupons organized into labeled envelopes. I love that my box fits in the child seat of a shopping card even when I have a child sitting there! I don’t like that I can’t close the top very easily when I have a child with me. (My boy is always pulling coupons/envelopes out.) I cut and organize every coupon I get and take my box with me to the store. I would be willing to pay $5-10 for something new if it met my needs better.
