June 16, 2011 12 Comments | Disclosure

The #1 Secret to Successful Couponing is to GET ORGANIZED!

Organization can make or break you when it comes to couponing. You can learn about our Coupon Organization methods here!

To get you started…

Here are some FAB suggestions for coupon binders…

I have included some of the online options from Amazon & Stylin’ Binders that appear to be of good quality and have received good average ratings from customers.
Features:

  • zippered, or have some sort of closure feature
  • 3-ring binder
  • extra features like a handle or pockets
  • a lot of them come in different colors too, so check out the ones that you are interested in by clicking on the links below!

Amazon.com prices change all the time and may even be different for each color option of the items!

The most important thing about organizing your coupons is that you find something that will work well for YOU!

Case-it Large Capacity 3-Inch Zipper Binder, Black, D-145-BLK (My favorite)

Binder Purse from Stylin’ Binders: tote fits a 3-inch binder, especially made for your money-saving coupon organizer binder, side flaps close securely so you won’t lose any coupons, two pockets on the inside cover to hold money, pens, store cards and debit cards. Each purse is lined with interfacing and cotton batting to make it durable. They also do custom orders on any fabric of your choice. Does not include binder. See some 3-inch binders here (starting at $5.99).

If your binder doesn’t have a convenient handle and/or a closure feature, you can carry it around in a tote bag.

  1. There is fantastic tote at Target. It’s made by Real Simple and holds hanging files. The current one is a linen color and costs about $31.00. I wish it was less expensive, but I really love mine.

  2. I saved more! I had a Coluzzle cutting system binder that I converted for coupons. Provo Craft makes them. It has the binder rings and a couple of inside pockets as well as some elastic loops and pockets and of course it zips shut, with carry handles. Maybe a few scrap bookers out there already have what they need and hadn’t thought about it. I think the organizing system that works for you is the most important part of couponing. Have fun!!!

      It’s all about the organization!! Thanks for the great info. And just FYI..the 5-star is now $15.58.

      • Michelle says:

        Oops..sorry..that was my mistake. The blue one is $14.99! I like black and that one was more. Figures!!

  3. I found the perfect binder (brand new!) at the thrift store!! What about the inserts? Trading cards protector sleeves?

  4. You can get a box of 100 trading card pages for $15+ at Amazon.

    Best price I have found.

    I don’t see how the 2inch binder works unless you have 2 binders one for the inserts and one just for clipped coupons.

    • Amazon has some more 3-inch Case-it zipper binders, but they didn’t seem to be very good quality according to the reviews.
      And some people keep more coupons than others, some keep less. It just depends on what will work for each person!
      I wouldn’t go smaller than a 2-inch though for sure!

    My hubby got me a perfect one from Fred Meyers for Mother’s Day. It has zippered closure, a built in accordian file ~where I sort my weekly store flyers with any catalinas and RR, a cell phone holder, card holders like a wallet where I keep my store rewards cards, a pen holder, a BUILT IN CALCULATOR (love that feature, can you tell??) and even a spot for me to keep my keys so I can just leave the purse at home instead of juggling that AND my binder! Best Mother’s Day gift ever!!

  6. Just maybe….I (with someone) should design the perfect coupon totes/binders for the needs of various couponers and put them on the market. Do these already exsist?
