Amanda shared the following coupon organization method:

This box is only about 2 inches wide, and it is filled with 26 slots to file things. I figure that should hold nearly 3 months of inserts, assuming 2 sets on most Sundays. It locks tightly, and has a handle so it is easy to carry if I ever happened to need to carry it anywhere.

I will file the coupons inside by date and type, and in theory they will be much easier to flip through and find what I need.

You can see that I have already gotten a small start on sorting them by date and type. I think this new item is going to help me out tremendously, saving me time and frustration. I also won’t have to worry about the kids and pets getting into my box and spilling or otherwise maiming its contents.

Thanks so much for sharing, Amanda!

  1. I use a small coupon organizer. Similar to the file folder above, but much smaller. It’s perfect for me as there are only two people (and a dog) in my household.
