I’ve had a lot of requests on how to make a coupon binder…so, below is my video I created showing my binder and my list of categories I use. You can tweak these to fit your needs.
While searching for a picture of a coupon binder (since I haven’t taken one of mine) I came across the binder pictured above! You can purchase it here for $26.99. That seems like a pretty good price but in my opinion you can still make it yourself for cheaper. I don’t think the one pictured above comes with the coupon holders (baseball protector sheets is what I use). You will end up paying around $10 – $15 for a zip up binder so if you want to fork out another $10 you can get the one pictured above which was made for coupons. It’s up to you… BUT WAIT! Before you buy that one (if you were thinking about it) check out the comment Lisa just left:
“I have that exact binder in the picture, but I got it on clearance at Wal-Mart RECENTLY for like $10 – $15! So you might want to check there if your Wal-Mart is anything like mine! My husband was actually the one who bought it for me, so I can’t remember the exact price, but it was left over from all the school supply sales.”
That’s not the reason I’m doing this post, just thought I’d add it in. I think it would be great to have you all that already have a binder, leave your tips on making a binder (where you got your binder, protector sheets, how much it cost, tips on organizing, etc)! Please feel free to join the conversation with any questions you may have as well!
I’ll start…..You can see most of this in the video but I bought my binder from Walmart as well as my baseball protector sheets. My tip would be to get a zip-up binder so you don’t lose coupons. I also recommend getting the plastic dividers not the paper ones (I have all plastic now since doing this video). The paper ones tend to rip. Another tip: Don’t have too many categories, it can be overwhelming when you go to insert your coupons. My last tip and favorite of all…..DON’T get behind on your coupon inserts! I suggest clipping them and putting them in your binder the same day you buy your newspaper. If you put it off, you will start compiling a big pile of newspapers and never want to mess with it! Uhhh-hummm…Yes, I know this from experience! 😉
Now it’s your turn….
