I thought I would share this really helpful email that reader, Kirsten, sent over! It basically goes over her favorite coupon organization method. This sounds like an awesome method for those of you who don’t like the binder method.
Here’s what Kirsten had to say:
I’m a frugal, deal loving, coupon MOM of 6 boys (ages 1 to 13) and wife to an awesome husband. I have been couponing for many years now. Your site had been such a great help in finding such great deals to help my family and I. I send old and new couponers to your site, because it is the best. Thank you.
I thought I would just share a picture of a coupon holder I made, that I love. I’m not a fan of the big binder for a couple of reason. The first is that I don’t like to have to cut the coupons so precise so that they will fit in the baseball card holders. This system just uses #10 envelopes that I put labels on. Then I don’t have to cut them that precise. Also with the binder, it is so big and bulky and takes up so much space in the cart, I can hardly fit anything else in the cart (ok, so I’m exaggerating a little, but it is big). If I have my kids with me it’s almost impossible. This system clips on the cart and then I can have room for my great deals and kids (should I have to take them), and my big load of coupons. It is also very convenient to be able to get the coupons out that I need while I am shopping. I have been using this coupon holder for about 4 or 5 months now and have loved it. I have yet to find a cart that it doesn’t work on. It can hang on the side or on the back.
I just got a container that was on sale at Staples that is the size for #10 envelopes. Then I purchase some bathroom hooks from Walmart that have a bit of a round knob or ball on the end to hook on the cart. (I did get shorter screws than what came with it). Then I drilled a hole in the container, put the hooks on it with the screw through it and a nut on the inside of the container. It has a great lid on it so that I don’t lose my coupons and can carry it easy.
Maybe this might help those that don’t like the binder like me. Thanks again for all the great deals. You are awesome.
Thanks for sharing your idea, Kirsten! It’s a great one! 🙂 If you have any other ideas or tips for coupon organization, please feel free to share them in the comments!
