My new coupon binder!

It doesn’t take much to make me happy. 
Before I used two binders. One for food and one for non-food. This way I had to only bring one into CVS and usually only one into the grocery store. You can see a little video HERE. But I really did want to have them all together, I knew it was going to be a big binder. I figured I would swallow my pride as I am sure I already look like an idiot at the store with a binder, and 6 kids and just do it.
I had been eyeing one on the Case It website for a while but it was $26.00 and I was waiting for a sale 🙂
When lo and behold, like a Christmas miracle, I spotted this one at Walgreens on sale for $13.99! It is the one I was eyeing on the website!

It has a handle, LOVE THIS, and a strap. Maybe someone will mistake me for an important vendor or business Woman in the store…
It zips shut, and is really sturdy.
The front had two zippered little cases, perfect for my envelopes I use for the different stores when I pull the coupons ahead of time. There was also a mesh opening that I have been using to put my coupons in as I shop when I pull them out. Perfect.
Now this is the best part… Take a second look at the picture! There are TWO binder rings in this binder!! So, I still am able to keep everything organized like I normally do! Each ring is 2″ so everything fits!

I could almost cry. It is so beautiful. I think I hear angels singing…
The back has two more inserts where you can store tons of stuff. I keep my CVS cards and store cards here. I also keep my ECB’s and catalina’s altogether here. So as  you can see I am fairly happy with my find. If this ever gets stolen or lost I am not sure what I would do! The first thing I did was put my contact info in the front. I am tempted to also put something that says, “large reward, if this is found and returned to me!”
How do you organize and store your coupons?

    Oh now that is cool! I am a newbie and just bought me one to do like you're doing just a couple days ago. BUT mine doesn't have 2 binders in it like yours. How cool!I have made two transactions so far at CVS but don't think I did very well. I spend wayyyy too much to get the bonus bucks I think. Anyway still learning so I'm hunting coupons to help me save even more. Love all your info on here it sure has helped me bunches! I don't see a place I can post my blog addy so I will put it on here. http://mrsbettybargain.blogspot.com/2009/07/more-on-cvs-ing.htmlI am trying to get it more organized so I can share info on mine as well. Anyway thanx again for all your help!

    I have just recently started clipping coupons. With in the last month I have saved tons of money. I really like this binder but I'm wondering how you will keep up with expiration dates. Before you got the binder how did you keep up with your coupons???

    I agree with Suzanne- WOW, WOOOOOOOW!. I am in awe at your coupon organizing goldmine. That is stinkin AWESOME_ heavenly choirs singing and trumpets trumpeting. I bought a small binder at a yard sale this weekend thinking that it would hold my cupes…no such luck- it is already so stuffed that it warps when zipped. Need to get a 5 star zipper and some baseball card poly organizers. Back to the drawing board.

    There was a post on another blog so I redid my coupon system over the Columbus Day weekend. I guess copying is the easiest way to do it. She had hers in a basket so I got out a basket with a lid to protect against the weather. Then I gathered some old folders from my old job and cut them in half and down low enough to fit in the basket. I labeled the pockets with the store and put the store coupons, specials list for the week and other stuff I need in the pocket. Then I made a pocket for the different categories of items like refrig, freezer, grains, snacks and others. I put all the internet coupons in those pockets. Then anytime I need something, I pull the pocket and all the coupons are in my hand. But my confusion is that I still organize the coupons from the paper by the date and which paper they come out of because some blogs tell you which insert to get the coupon from. How to do figure out what the date of the insert is with your system? My basket is already full so I need a new system so let me know.
