Choose a Binder
If you've been carrying your coupons to the store in an expandable coupon file or -- gasp! -- a plain white envelope, it's time to step up your game. A three-ring binder lets you carry more inventory, organize more creatively and see all your coupons at a glance.
Some coupon aficionados swear by a zippered binder -- the kind that zips all the way around the outside -- to hold everything in place and prevent your carefully arranged coupons from spilling all over the floor of the grocery store if you should happen to drop it. But any three-ring binder will do, and repurposing one of your kids' old school notebooks for this purpose will save you some money. If you're worried about your binder falling or flopping open, a sturdy rubber band or two should help to keep it closed.
Now that you've chosen your carrier, it's time to get those coupons organized!
