A coupon organizer binder is for those who are serious about couponing. With this method, the clear pages give you a quick visual overview of your coupons, making it easy to find any coupon you need. On the other hand, the organizer binder is not as portable as the previous methods (the envelope and purse sized organizer), and can be time-consuming to maintain. If your time is limited, consider coupon file folders.
To make a coupon organizer binder, you’ll need a high quality 3-ring binder, category dividers (plastic will last longest), and baseball-card plastic pages. Keep your eyes open for sales at your local stores, or from Amazon: binder, dividers, pages. Altogether, a coupon organizer binder setup might cost from $10-$30.
When you fold your coupons to put it in the binder pages, let the expiration date on each coupon show outwards.
