Coupons, Coupons and more Coupons…Links to help with Organization
April 23, 2009

I have a goal. My goal is to get my coupons organized so I can save even more money than I have been. While this post won’t be about Scrapping or about Scrap Addicts’ Blog/Forum…I feel it’s a necessary post. Mainly I’ve been researching how others organize their coupons and the different places you can get said coupons.

I am fairly frugal. Not as much as some of the blogs I follow…but I keep the budget going pretty good (even with a husband who LOVES to shop).

I have a few friends who have questions like me about the “best way” to clip/store/organize their coupons. Hopefully, one of the links I post here will have their answer. So far, I like what I see with these bloggers. They have A LOT of good ideas that I will try out. I know all of them won’t work for me…but I’m sure somewhere in here…my “perfect” coupon plan is just waiting to be discovered.

On to the links. I searched for Coupon Binder…I’ve tried the coupon pouches, the accordian file folders, shoe boxes with index cards…and I’m not real pleased with those. Maybe the Binder will be my savior?

My search began here:
http://www.5dollardinners.com/2009/04/my-coupon-binder.html
This one was on my iGoogle page. On this site, the author Erin, has a spot for fellow bloggers to link to their sites…and their advice. There is a WEALTH of knowledge here. I’m amazed at how many people are out there who are researching and providing the info that people like me are looking for. To those who put in all the hard work, a BIG THANK YOU! Working 40+ outside of the home, raising a toddler and having a husband who works his 40+ outside of the home as well makes it impossible for me to get everything done that I need/want to do.

So anyway…a quick glance ruled out a few of the links (sorry but I know the shoe box/index cards and so on just don’t work for me, at least long term)

The links that did catch my attention:
