DIY How To Organize Your Printable Coupons!

We have had many requests for ideas on organizing your printable coupons.  This is what I do with mine.  It is nothing fancy, but it is easy to do and frugal (two of my favorite things)!









This is a convenient way to file them in your binder. You can just use one sheet per catagory and file them using the Baseball Card Method:

OR You can catagorize by pocket and file them all in one section using the ClippLESS Method:

 

If you are not feeling up to making them Avery sells this same version. You can buy them on Amazon HERE.

    This is awesome! I now have a reason to use my sewing machine! Thanks for sharing

    That’s too complicated for me. The card/comic book shop where I buy my inserts has all different sizes, these ones included. I think they’re originally meant for currency, but this size and the 6 pocket pages work perfectly for printables. It’s nice.

    I honestly prefer the 6 pocket pages, because the coupons slide out of the 3 pocket pages really easily when I’m flipping through my binder. easy fix by just paper clipping them in, but eh. 🙂

    When I started couponing 3 years ago, I made my page protector pockets with my sewing machine, but in a different configuration (big ppocket on the bottom, two smaller at the top). They have held up well and I love being organized in a way my mind can thrive with.
    Thanks for these ideas! I think that as long as our binder works for us, each is a representation of our desire to save money for our family.

    When using the clip less coupon method with online coupons, is there a way to print a list of the coupons you printed from the websites, or do I need to type my own cover sheet for each. i.e. coupons.com, red plum, etc.?

    This was the most fantastic idea I have seen in a while for those of us without enough spare cash (being unemployed and all) to go out and buy inserts designed like this. I just have one “tried it and found this out” comment. I did this with regular thread, but my poor plastic didn’t seem to take it too well! I then used regular thread on my heavyweight pages and it was fine.

    I would suggest, though, is no matter what weight plastic you’re using, that you use an elastic-type thread. I tried it and had an “aha” moment! It has more give than regular cotton thread and will allow you to be…um…less “lady-like” with your coupon retrieval, like I am with mine (yanking around in the pockets pulling out 4 or 5 of them only to shove them back in the wrong way mostly before finding the one I want!). 🙂

      I folded mine in half and cut 3 slits. Then put a paper in the plastic sleeve and tape on the botton of each pocket i made instead of sewing. This also gave me 6 pockets instead of only 3.

    coupontom.com if you print them through the website it will save what coupons you have printed. you can also use it on mobile so if i see a great deal i check to see what coupons i have (i use clipless method) so its very useful for me.

    I am going to try my food saver to melt three seams. Will let you know if it works or if my hubs is going to kill me after work lol

  • Amanda

    So I used the food saver but I need to get thicker sleeves as mine started to melt. It is also a pain to line them up. If you want to save money and have a food saver then it is possible. I think I am going to buy the pre made ones as my ADD brain will lose interest on making them lol
