Welcome to the seventh installment of my new series “Manage Your Mess Monday”. This series will focus on organizing your life and home. My goal is to have the series last 2 months with one post per week. I hope you find some useful tips to help you manage any “mess” you may have in your life. Visit here for my past Manage Your Mess posts. This week’s post is all about organizing your coupons.
There are many different ways to organize your coupons and the best way is simply whatever works best for you. I have tried several different ways and life changes (children being born) have caused me to settle on the method of filing by inserts. I just don’t have the time to cut and sort coupons with the boys running around, and frankly, I would much rather be running around with them than clipping and sorting. Here are some various ways I have used and/or found to organize your coupons:
If you choose the 3 ring binder, you can file by inserts or clip and file coupons. If you plan on clipping, a good idea would be to purchase some Trading Card Pagesto keep coupons “straight”.
There is also the file box and envelope system (which was my prior organizing system). You can read about it and see pictures HERE
So, how do you organize your coupons?
