Breaking Down a Coupon Binder! PLUS A LOADED BINDER GIVEAWAY!

** Giveaway CLOSED!

There are many different ways to store your coupons. For me the easiest


and best way is a coupon binder. I realize that it isn’t the sexiest thing to be carrying around a grocery store, but hey, your saving money and they aren’t!

I would only get a binder that has a handle and for me a carrying strap. I have to hang onto too many kids in a parking lot to be carrying this anywhere other than my shoulder. : )

I have tried a few different binders, you will see in the video below that I was using 2 different binders at one time, but for the past 9mo. I have been using one huge binder. I use a Case It brand binder that has 2 rings inside. One is a 2 1/2 inch ring and the other is 1 inch ring.
In Aug. for back to school it is easy to find these binders. Right now it is next to impossible! I can only find them online until next August.
The left section is bigger and holds all my coupons for groceries or things I might find in a grocery store. The right side I use for everything that I buy at CVS or Walgreens. Toiletries and Pharmacy items.
I love this binder because it has so many pockets and zipper bags. I keep store circulars, grocery cards, coupon books and scissors here.
PUT YOUR NAME IN YOUR BINDER! Just incase you loose or forget it in the cart, make sure someone can get it back to you!
I use baseball card holders to store my coupons. I have a few clear CD pages in here but those are just in the back for really big coupons I can’t fold. I cut and put all my coupons in at one time. You can watch a VIDEO HERE how I do this. This method is best for me. I love to be able to flip through the pages and see exactly what I have, it also makes pulling out expired’s easy. My sections of the binder are labeled like the isles of a grocery store. I sit my binder in the child seat of the cart ( if a kid is there I have to put the binder in the cart) than I as I walk down the isles I just flip to that section of the binder and can easily see what coupons I have.
These are the categories that I have in my binder.
First section:
Dairy
Snacks
Baking
Canned
Deli
Boxed
Frozen
Drinks
Cereal
Cleaning
Non-Food
Pets
Mom/Baby
Second Section:
Deodorant
Teeth
Shaving
Lotion
Shampoo
Make-Up
Pharmacy
Paper
Places to buy supplies. I would estimate it to cost about $40 to put together a good binder.
Binders:
AMAZON is the only place right now that I know you can get a CASE IT binder and HERE.
During the back to school sales try Target, Walmart, Walgreens and the Office Supply Stores.
Baseball Card Pages:
I get mine at Walmart, they are about 35 for $5.98. They are located in the front of the store by the baseball and Pokemon cards. Target has a bigger pack for about $15 but they are always sold out. I have heard that people get them at the Dollar Store but I have looked for a year and have never seen them.
Page Dividers:
Again, usually Walmart. Just make sure you don’t use the paper pages, they will tear in no time. Get the plastic pages. I used a label maker to label mine.

Now the fun part!!

Do you want to win your very own Coupon Binder?? It is a Blue MEAD brand, cool binder loaded with all the pages and dividers, plus some coupons!

    HI ! I always make couponing look good..with the best accessory being a well-dressed shopper ! hee hee ! Okay…so that is not always the case…but I try to look like a "smart shopper" by dressing the part ! Lonni HarperLJHouston04@yahoo.com

  2. karen g Says:

    I try not to look so stressed out as I'm digging thru my coupons while my 6month old is stirring and 8 year old thinking he's at the playground 🙂

  3. Sonya L in N,N. VA Says:

    My secret is to always try to do my super couponing without my kiddos. I sometimes get stressed when shopping with tired kids, so when I go alone and have them organized, then I feel so happy about saving so much I have a smile on my face. I always get stopped to have someone look at my binder and I kindly explain how I have it set up. I have also given a coupon or two away when I see someone getting a product that I have an extra coupon for.

  6. Natalie Says:

    I've just recently decided to become a faithful coupon user…AFTER discovering our budget for a family of six needs some serious taming. I used to clip a few here and there, but now I've gone so far as to search through the recycled paper bins in our town for MORE coupons! (And, there is no good-looking way to do that!) Right now, to make couponing look good at the store I simply wear a SMILE and maybe give a quiet squeal when I find a REALLY good deal! Even if my four children, ages 15, 6, 5, and 2 are with me… I'm a full-time teacher as well…so I attempt most of my shopping on the weekend or at night when my husband is at home with the children…that way my SMILE tends to stick around and my patience remain in tact. However, I have a feeling my little, lavender colored, envelope size divided file is going to be outgrown soon! I need more space and more divisions!

  7. BKFrance Says:

    I make couponing look super cool by allowing my kiddos to participate! The youngest is five so this is easy now-a-days! 🙂 My kids love to shop with coupons so I guess I've brought up some bonafide bargain hunters. We make shopping a game of finding the most coupon bargains. People usually make comments about how happy my kids look to be shopping, unlike lots of other kiddos out there! LOL

  8. Juan Says:

    Me and my girlfriend make coupoining look good. I always do the walgreens, cvs deals and put them together. She on the other hand does the grocery store, target, walmart deals and sends me out to get our goodies. We have a coupon night where we sit down and cut all our inserts while we watch a movie and our 3 doggies entertain us. We have 2 big binders one for groceries and one for toiletries. They are overflowing with coupons and we can't even close them :). When we go out to do groceries together or other deals we only take the coupons we have organized for our deals. This seems like a great organizer that we could organize in and carry to the stores. Thanks for all the deals and ideas from Hilda and Juan in Central Houston.juanh.castillo@gmail.com

    I'm still trying to figure out how to make it look good. Right now I'm crazy. The binder is awesome though!

  11. Jennifer Says:

    Well I need some serious help in this area. My coupon "look" consist of me carrying around some coupons that I'm pretty sure to use and then sticking them in my purse pocket as I have put the item/s in the buggy. Not so hot to say the least:)PS…I'm a follower too!

  12. Sonya L in NN. VA Says:

    I am a fan on facebook as well 🙂

  13. Mommas159 Says:

    I try to make it look good by being totally organized. I make my list out isle by isle, itemes that I have a coupon for are marked and the coupon already pulled. I am currently using a index file type but am dying to try the binder!Im a Follower of your blog as well

  14. Laura Says:

    I have to be honest, I probably do not make couponing look that great. I have been using envelopes to put my coupons in and it makes it such a pain to do. However, when I check out at the grocery store and my grocery bill drops at least 30.00 I smile and remember why I do it. I am also a fan on facebook=)Thank you!!

  15. Melissa Says:

    I look so good with my cart of groceries and coupons as my 4 year old runs up & down the aisles yelling "Pow!" pretending to shoot deer. I really look on top of my game as my 19 month old continually sticks his finger into little openings in the cart just to get it stuck, scream, have me dislodge his finger,then repeat. So maybe I don't look so good at the store. I look like a crazy mom! But this crazy mom gets some great deals!

  16. Chris Says:

    I try to look as organized as I can, which, in reality, probably doesn't look good!! hee hee!! I have a little basket, with envelopes right now, but your system seems much more organized.

  17. Robin Says:

    I'm doing a hybrid of keeping the coupon inserts whole and carrying around loose coupons in a check file. I liked the idea of having whole inserts to just use when a sale calls for it, but I missed out a lot when there were clearance sales on things–so, I now cut out the q's I KNOW I'd use if I went to the store and file them alphabetically in the 13 folder check file. The file also is divided into stores that I get coupons for, such as CVS ECB's and Walgreens RR's. When I get those, I pop them into the file right away so that I remember to use them next trip! As for entries, I've twittered, this and have been following you on twitter, subscribed to your e-mails, follow you on facebook, and shared this great entry on my facebook page! you'll find me at robinandgeorgewright at yahoo.com

  18. Oakley Says:

    I make couponing look good mostly by my attitude! I am always super sweet to the cashiers, pass on helpful info to others in the store, and try to be a "coupon fairy" when I am not going to use them!Oakley (joeandoak@gmail.com)

  19. Oakley Says:

    I follow all your advice about being nice to cashiers and such. I also have a small notebook where I write lists for each store…sometimes I have to compare deals on the spot if I find additional coupons!I have a link to your blog on my blog and am a FB follower!

  24. Anonymous Says:

    I feel sorry for your husband. I have been reading this blog for some time now and you seem to be out of control. You treat your husband like a child in the stores and don't let him get what hewants so that you can save?? You and your followers soundllike a bunch of COUPON NAZI WOMEN. Get a life!

  25. Angela (annjuhlah@gmail.com) Says:

    I try not to stress by pulling out my coupons at home and planning my trip before I leave. This is especially true if I have two little guys with me. I put plenty of "bribes" in my purse, have my list on the outside of the envelope and coupons inside. I briskly walk the aisles getting what I need before anyone goes nuts! (including myself!)

  26. Anonymous Says:

    When I coupon of course I try my best to do it when i have enough time, at check out Im very casual and but very friendly i have made friends with supervisors after shopping I make it a point to say hi or just a wave even share one or two coupons on sale items at the store. My binder always organized and ready to go. cashiers I give pointers and suggestions.Im naturally a people person give them a minute of your time. Usually I go when the store is about to close and no one is behind me.I of course start with I apologize for the coupons it saves me alot of money since I lost my job two years ago.

  27. Are we there yet? Says:

    I try to figure out all the deals from home and write out the deals on a note pad so when I am in the store I know exactly what I am looking for and what I should be paying for it. I love your blog it has really helped me lock into the great deals!

  28. oliv2b Says:

    Anonymous are you freaking kidding me? I can not believe someone can be so hateful. You are not forced to read or follow this blog. If you really think Tiffany and her followers are "a bunch of coupon Nazi women" then DON'T READ HER BLOG! You don't even have the guts to include your name in your nasty comments. You are the one who needs to get a life!-Heather

  29. jenn Says:

    I have a little envelope system…It's accordion style, and it sits in my big purse in the child seat. It doesn't have many tabs, so I made extra with note cards and stuck them in there…it works for now, but I would so LOVE to win this binder!!jennmchenry(at)verizon(dot)net.

    Well I just make a list, gather coupons and head to the store. I usually don't clip any coupons until I need them.

  32. Jenn Ruggles Says:

    I am just getting started in couponing. So I do not currently have a system. I follow you and I emailed some friends about this blog.jenn@roogles.com

  33. Kassidy Says:

    I make a list and have my coupons in a turquois binder, my binder is kept in a yellow and turquois shoulder bag, it coordinates well. 🙂

  34. EWolfe Says:

    The way I make couponing look good is that I am prepared when I go into the store and when I see my savings, I cannot help but to announce it. I get my kids excited and we say " Woo Who we saved 15.93 with coupons" And some people actually ask questions about couponing. 🙂 Love it!

  35. Amanda Davis Says:

    I've become a really serious coupon user. I never leave the house without a list (which REALLY helps with saving money) and I don't buy anything without looking for a coupon first. My FAVORITE part about making this "look" good is that I got my husband addicted too! He told me he feels so bad buying things for full price when we could find a deal, so he'll even look for a deal with the things he buys!!! 🙂

  36. Suzanne Says:

    To "anonymous" (or someone that is so secure with their comment that they don't leave their true identity) obviously you don't know the true sex appeal of a coupon binder or you yourself would be joining the countless numbers of couponers. As for feeling sorry for the husband…I know them personally and there is nothing that he wants for. He has a wonderful wife and family and takes pride in them. If you were a follower and fan of the blog you would know that he too is a smart, savvy and willing participant in the art of couponing. I realize that couponing is a challenge for some and that it might deter those that find it too stressful. I proudly say that I AM a follower of this lovely blog with a coupon binder (purple so that I can be seen throughout the stores…did I mention the sex appeal of that?). As for being a Nazi as you so cleverly put it…well…I would say we are intelligent, adept, discerning, and resourceful people that know when we have come across a good thing. Long live couponing!! (And check it out…I left my name!)

  37. Anonymous Says:

    I use a binder set up in the same order as the aisles in my favorite grocery store – but my binder is not as cool as yours (it does have a cute design on the front). I also have a 3 hole zippered pencil bag in the front and slide each coupon in it as I put the item in my cart ….. this keeps me from holding coupons in my hands (or worse, dropping or losing one of them!). I think snagging the deals and saving money is cool and although many may not think my binder is cool, several people stop me in the store to take a look or ask how to make one. I love putting coupons I'm not going to use that are expiring soon right on top of the item(s) in the store as a little surprise savings opportunity for the next shopper.Love your blog,arhall@adelphia.net

  38. Joy Says:

    When I walk into a grocery store I look like I'm taking a cart load in. I have my big zipper binder, all my reusable bags, my purse, and a jacket in this freezing weather! My cart is full before I get started haha.I love seeing other people with their coupons and giving them a big knowing smile. I'm seeing more and more. Sometimes I'll offer someone a coupon I know I have and probably won't use. They love it. Yes, my husband thinks I'm weird. I'm going to put this link on our Hearts and Hand Blog. I share with other frugal bloggers.Thanks for the pictures.I like your filing system. I've never mastered that category technique, I just went back to alphabetical. It seems to help me find the coupons the quickest.Great post.♥ Joy

  39. MM Says:

    I told my husband what I had to do for this giveaway. My husband must have really wanted to make some "brownie points" by saying, "Tell them, I'm a hot wife, anything I do in regards to coupons looks hot." I guess his "brownie points" ran out and he feels like perhaps he should store some more in case he needs them. Anyway, I try to remain as organized as possible (even though I use the envelope/container system). When I am shopping, I have my lists and coupons that I gathered in seperate "store envelopes" so that as I go onto the next store, I just pull out that envelop to go with it. Though my husband has talked me into getting the binder method. It really seems a lot better, and doesn't seem so overwhelming. This giveaway would be the right motivation to get me to transfer what I have over to a better method. Margie tccsreading@yahoo.com

    Well, how do I make couponing look good…hmmm, I am really a couponing beginner or wannabe you could say so since I started reading your blog I have tried printing some and using them but they are just in a section of my wallet. I really could use this binder so I can be organized. I am totally into organization but we have just moved and I'm lucky to find my toothpaste right now. And, since we are expecting baby #6in March there really are no hopes for me starting my own coupon binder anytime soon.Lori D, in OK

  42. lynda Says:

    I am excited about this giveaway! On Sat. I went couponing for the first time. My 4 kids were with me and they each got an envelope with a different category of coupons. I'm not sure how good we looked, but we were all smiling and it was fun. It worked okay, but I know that this system would be much more efficient! My fingers are crossed!lyndakc@verizon.net

  44. LB @Wait, She Said What? Says:

    Well I'm not big time like you and some of your other readers, so right now I keep mine in my purse with a paperclip. As simple and a little strange as it sounds it does work. Right now I never have more coupons than can fit in a paperclip and it makes it portable. I just make sure to make them all face the same way so they're easy to check throughout the store. I would love to make it more organized and better for travel but had no clue where to even begin! This post is awesome!My email is on my blog and my profile. Great giveaway!LB

    I make coupons LOOK GOOD by LOOKING BAD!! When I use to dress my normal self and use a mega stack of coupons the people in line behind me would growl. So one day when I was sick and still needed to shop I went look like death warmed over with a HUGE stack of coupons and the lines were backed up and no one complained. I guess they felt like it was the only way I could afford to buy groceries! So now I always go shopping LOOKING BAD so that when I get home I LOOK GOOD to my husband for saving money!!usmc89oki@msn.com

    I try to make it look good by showing my husband the money we save, and by trying to share some coupons with the check out person, if they are interested. Your coupon binder rocks! I want one so bad! My binder is way too small and is going to explode any minute!

  49. lmkirb Says:

    I'll admit it, I'm not too cool looking at the grocery store when using my coupons from my Dollar Store coupon holder. Ya know, the cardboard kind…yeah, that's what I use. That's about as cool as it gets for this mom! So here's hoping the coupon fairies are with me and I have a chance at this giveaway!!

  51. Laurie C. Says:

    I try to go shopping super prepared. I try to have a comprehensive list of the items I intend to buy, and generally have the coupons for these items presorted. Prior to to getting to the register I make sure to go through my "stack" to verify that the coupons I hand to the cashier are all valid for the items I'm purchasing. I don't mind making an issue over a coupon, but do like to know that I'm right before I draw attention to it.Thanks for the great giveaway opportunity!wmllewis (at) truvista (dot) net

  52. Camille Says:

    I just bought a great purple tote-purse that I put my coupon binder in! I find it hard to keep my binder open in the seats because I can't flip pages without my grocery cart in the way.. and I'm afraid if I have my binder on top of the seat, it will easily topple over. Now when I go into the store, I have my purple tote that looks like a purse and each side zips all the way down to the bottom which makes my tote very wide; I keep my binder in there, opened and still have plenty of room to find my coupons..

    I think I do my best couponing when accompanied by my son Ethan, after I find the product that I need I hand him my coupon to put into my "coupons to be used" envelope. When I get to the register I just take all of my coupons out in one bunch and hand them to the cahier. It is easy for me and fun for him.

    I am a 24 year old wife to be and me and my fiance rock out a wonderful old school binder I had in college. Sure its not the best but we are saving some serious cash. My mother always and still does, use coupons so I grew up knowing I needed to spend a few hours a week clipping coupons. Adriane: futuremrsbaden@gmail.com

  66. Trucker Mom Says:

    I use grocerysmarts and print out all of the four and five star items, then I highlight off that list what I am going to buy, gather the coupons for those items and staple them to the list as close to the item as possible. That way I can compare what is on sale with what is on the coupon without spending a lot of time looking for the coupon. I also know that if the item is out of stock the coupon stays on the list and I don't accidentally hand it to the cashier.

    i have my coupon expand file book in order of the way i go down the grocery isles and will look through my coupon file as I go and pull them out if i want to buy an item. But the coupon book i have is so small…this binder method you came up with looks awesome!morrow.family@yahoo.com

    Currently, I pull out the coupons that I will need before I go into the store, but inevitably, there are always those products that I wish I had all my coupons for. I started using a make shift binder this weekend but it's not going to last- only 1/2 inch. What helps me coupon, is to put them in order and have my list set. I've been couponing for about 6 months, thanks to you! I hope to improve my set up and spend more time on the organization in the upcoming months. Maria maria_arizola@yahoo.com

  72. Lora Says:

    I make couponing look good by sticking duplicate coupons, or coupons I'm not going to use, on or next to the item, so other shoppers can use them. I figure it's good karma, and maybe it will get that shopper to use coupons if they don't already.Love your blog!Lora (shoegal8.lj@gmail.com)

  73. Deanna Says:

    I'm not at the point of making couponing 'look good' yet, but I am on my way! I am seriously needing to upgrade to a binder system and would love this! If you get a chance to read through all of these comments, I have a question. I read the reviews of the CaseIt products on Amazon and a few said that the binders ripped early on – but these were being used by middle school kids – what is your opinion?thanks!

  74. Deanna Says:

    I also follow you via Google Reader. Thanks for all your hard work!

  75. MyLitter Says:

    Deanna! I have heard of people having problems with them. I have not and I am very hard on mine. My zipper is still perfect. I have a close friend that had a problem with hers and sent it back to the company and they sent her a new one, she said they were great to work with.I have not found another double ring binder. If anyone comes across one i would like to try it out. My son has a single ring Case It and he hasn't had any problems yet… he is 12 so not careful with anything. Anyone else have any experience with Case It??

  76. englandmom14 Says:

    i am a disabled mom of 4. i am in a wheelchair and have limited use of my hands as well. i make couponing look good because i JUST DO IT! I try to organize my coupons as efficiently as possible (i ADORE your binder as it would make carrying, seeing, and removing them SO much easier for crippled hands 🙂 ) and people see me shopping with them in hand and using them at the register. if "I" can do it then they surely can, right? I also involve my kids whenever possible. Letting them choose a treat that is "new" when we have a coupon (usually especially good ones for new items) is also an incentive for helping hands. These are ways I make couponing look good!debbs cashmoredebbs.cashmore@gmail.com

  77. Cindy Says:

    I make couponing look "good" by trying all the suggestions I learn from this site. My coupons are organized in a tiny plastic coupon binder that I carry with me when shopping at the grocery store, CVS, Walmart, etc. I have my coupons organized according to store (Walmart, Kroger, CVS, RiteAid, Dollar General). I also have a section for freebies. I would love to have a binder though where I could keep all of my coupons together in one spot. My little purple binder only holds coupons that I use frequently. I keep all the others at home in large envelopes. My Mom watched me saving money this year couponing so she spent an afternoon making herself a mini coupon organizer. She found an old Hallmark mini album and decorated the front of it and placed all of the coupons she used in the photo sleeves. It works perfectly for her. We make couponing look good by shopping together and never being ashamed of our geeky-looking coupon holders. Several people have stopped us as we are shopping to brag on Mom's photo book. We hand out extra coupons to other shoppers if we spy something in their cart that we have an extra coupon for. I think that being proud of couponing is the best way one can promote this money-saving technique to others!

    I am sorry to say that I don't make couponing "look good." My coupons are usually a mess, my baby is eating them or my 2 other kids think the shopping cart is a parade float and use my coupons as confetti. Hopefully a coupon binder could solve that problem.

    I make couponing look good by putting my 4 year old IN the shopping cart and having him hold the list. I then PULL the triplets in a wagon behind me.

    I would like to try a binder system . but I am afraid filing and purging would take longer than my box system.

  95. mrsman99 Says:

    I'm still "wet behind the ears" at couponing! I carry them in a little red accordion case that slips into my purse. I've tried my hand at "roughly" sorting them (with cute little sticker tabs), but still have to sift through each compartment as I'm strolling down the aisles. Last week I even dropped a $1 off coupon for vitamins on the kitchen floor while trying to stuff them in- not realizing, of course, until I got home. And there seems to be some diuretic component to the atmosphere at Wal-Mart, since all three of our children mysteriously "have to go pee" as soon as we're in the doors!! Help!Mrsman99@hotmail.com

    My girlfriend and I coupon together which makes it fun. Also, we compliment each other because she will find out about deals I don't know about and I find out about deals she doesn't know about. I use a binder and keep each ad in a plastic sleeve with an itemized list. I don't cut my coupons until I am ready to use them. A more sturdy binder would be awesome, but I think if I won I would probably offer it to my girlfriend. She has outgrown her current system and I think she needs it more than me.

    I try to have all the FREE coupon prices written in to help the cashier, put the coupons in a neat stack, put all the free iteMs first on the belt and have our preferred custoMer card on top of the stack of coupons.

  123. The Bookworm Says:

    I usually do my coupon shopping without my toddler or with my husband along to help entertain her. That way, she's not grabbing at my coupons and sending all of them flying. 🙂 Also, lately, I've started planning exactly what I'm going to buy, then I retrieve the coupons I need from my binder, and take only those coupons to the store attached to my shopping list. It's helped me stop impulse buying. :)hawaiismn(at)gmail(dot)com

    I have my binder set up for the store that I generally shop at and for the way I shop. I usually will do the non food items first since I spend about one and a half hours shopping when I shop. And then I do the non perrishable foods, then I go to the produce and refrigerated stuff and I finish up with the frozen foods. It takes so long because they have a lot of stuff on sale that does not show up in the add and there is no rhyme or reason as to when they will start or finish.

    Hello! I came over via dealseekingmom! I make couponing look good (or try to) by having everything ready for the cashier. Any free coupons I have I save those items for last, so the prices are easy for them to find. Thanks!KellyHskyviewksh@yahoo.com

  193. Katie Says:

    I am actually a new "Nazi" couponer!! And I am loving it. I am a mother of 7, and stay at home. I have decided the one way I can help with income in the family is to use coupons. I have saved SOOO much at places like CVS and Target. I have a small coupon organizer that is busting at the zipper…I would LOVE to win a new binder to use while shopping. I love that it can hang on my shoulder as my youngest are 1 and 2, so holding the hands of my kids are important. As far as making it look good, I take my time in the store shopping and make sure I have my coupons out and ready to be scanned so as not to hold up the checkout line. I think when you can be courteous to others it makes saving all that money a little more extra special. I love your blog, and I am a FB fan. Thanks for taking so much time out of your life to help others. Katie

    I'm probably too late for this fabulous give-away, but wanted to try anyway. I'm new to couponing and all the blogs and websites that are available to help me. I can't wait to become better organized with the stacks of coupons I have. We have always just tried to buy generic items or watched the sales. I'm doing an "Extreme Makeover Financial Edition" in our family. We have 7 total and it's time for Mommy to get her Money Saving Weapons out and save as many dollars as I can! Enjoyed your site. Found it through moneysavingmom.com Have a great day!

  195. Angie Says:

    I divide up the coupons by sections in the grocery store and assign the sections to my kids. They have fun looking for the items and helping me determine if its a good deal or not. Getting items for pennies or even free sometimes is GREAT!!

    Hi, I make couponing look good because the money I'm saving makes me have a smile on my face! I'm a single mother of three (all girls at that!) and am new at couponing! My new found obession has been such a financial blessing. Where in the past, I only have enough on hand to suffice what we really needed. Now, for the first time in a very long time, I am able to stock up on some of our most used items!While shopping, I want to be well organized (at least give off that impression) so I may influence others to coupon!! 🙂 I much enjoyed your site! Thank you so much!jtodd1218@yahoo.com

    I absolutely love your blog! I've tried couponing before, but never felt so motivated. I try to stay organized by keeping my coupons in a small check file that fits in my purse. That way they're always handy when I run in the store. I love getting a good deal and checking out the clearance shelves. I get so excited when I find an item on sale that I have a coupon for! For example, today at Target I found OUST 2 for $5. I used a buy one, get one coupon, so I got my OUST for $1.25 a can! Then I had a buy one, get one coupon for Bic razors. There happened to be several "bonus" packs on the shelf, so instead of getting two 10 packs for the price of one, I got two 14 packs for the price of one! 28 razors for $2.94 = That's just over 10 cents a razor! I loved watching my husbands face at the checkout today when our total went from $134.33 to $102.83. $31.50 in savings, just by combining my coupons with in-store specials and clearance items. I'm still just an amateur, so thanks for all of your help!:) duckielakes@yahoo.com

    I make couponing look good by including all five of my kids. My four oldest are experts at searching out the blinkies and peelies! They have fun finding the exact products that match my coupons. And they love that we are able to get so many more "treats" now that Mom is a couponer!

  208. April Says:

    To make couponing look good, I'm sure to leave my 3 year old at home. Otherwise, I'm dropping coupons throughout the store and too stressed to search for the great deals. I've also been so distracted by him at the checkout that I've left before I realized I never gave the person my coupons! Still working on an organizational system and love the binder!april_sweeney@hotmail.comThanks!

    Hi! Matching up the adds with the coupons Before shopping helps and just taking those coupons along with the list of what to buy seems to help with couponing. Even though there are some things things that pop up on sale that you think you have a coupon for so we keep the binder in the van for those times (just hoping that the binder made its way Back into the van!)

    I make couponing look good by not wearing some of the cloths you know we have all seen in those mass latest emails of Walmart from every different state! Oh yeah, i try to write a list before i go to the store of what coupon i am going to use with what is on sale.

  220. The Short Mom Says:

    Oooh! I have a binder but not a fancy one like this! I just try to keep my coupons organzied and make sure to throw my expired coupons away because I always seen coupons crumpled up in carts that people have just thrown in there.

  221. Ben and Mel Says:

    Well… between the 18 month old and the 4 year old… we are always doing something to draw attention to ourselves at the store. I make couponing look good by getting my daughter involved, getting things off the shelf and such. Also, to pass the time since it takes longer to coupon we are usually singing some kind of song to keep the kids occupied… yes… I do get looks, but I save money and I do it the best I can!

    i follow your blog…i check in at least 5 times a day, to see if there are any new "can't miss" deals! i have 2 month old baby girl at home, and am very new to couponing. this binder would make a mighty fine addition to the shopping cart, along with the diaper bag, and of course my little pumpkin. :)Kristenj_kvanlue@hotmail.com

  223. Jennifer G Says:

    I try to make couponing look good by being organized at the store. I pull my coupons out of my coupon holder as I pick the items up and put them in the front section of the holder. That way when I get to the checkout I have everything ready and don't look all flustered digging through hundreds of coupons in front of the cashier.youarethough@gmail.com

  224. Jeanne Says:

    When I go into a store I put my purse into the play where a child would normally set. I then place my binder on top of my purse and open it to the first department that I plan to visit (usually the health and beauty. Almost every one that walks by me comments on what a great idea and system I have. I always make sure that I comment on how sensible and easy it is to cut coupons. I always make sure that I engage in a friendly conversation with the cashier as I am checking out.I think that this helps put the cashier at ease and make for a great check out. Jeanne

    I don't have a coupon binder, so I decide before I go what coupons I am going to use and put them in order of the aisles. If I see something I think I have a coupon for at home, I don't buy it. I make a mental note, and as soon as I get home, I find the coupon and make a quick trip to the store the next day. We live less than a minute from our Kroger so it is not a big deal. But, being able to take all of my coupons to the store would be a great time saver.

    I take my big purse. I stick my organizer inside and move the coupons I use to the front pocket so I'm ready at checkout. This is my attempt to be efficient and discreet and keep my coupons from being stolen. Man, I could use an attractive and much more functional binder. What I'm doing now is not worth the time I spend on clipping those coupons. I have recently started filing my coupons in plastic sleeves. I should be binder empowered soon (it would just happen so much faster if I won) Come on kids!!! Choose me.PS Mark told me to say that I wear my stillettos haahaa. I guess he hasn't noticed how I walk {and trip) in high heels!

    I have a weekly file for my inserts and I so want to put together a binder as I have seen many deals that I wish I had my coupons with me but I am such a follower that up to now I just look at the blogs and follow those deals I feel like I miss out on so many but am a bit afraid to cut all the inserts up because then I won't know what week to find the ones you list! I would love to get one to get me on the binder wagon as for right now the best I can do is be a courteous couponer by being polite to cashiers and to others customers by letting them ahead of me in line if I have more than one transaction! I really really wish I had a binder for the Randalls half off sale last week! Oh well hopefully I will win and it will be a great motivator to get myself into the binder mode! Thanks for all you do you have saved me so much $$$$.

    I love couponing! I usually read a couple blogs that I know have a list for the store that I'm going to and make a list of the free and cheap stuff I want. I also put all the coupons that I know I will be using in the front page of my binder so I am not flipping thru the pages too much. I try to act like I know what I'm doing even if the numbers aren't adding up the way I planned. So I guess you can say I make it look easy. The double ring binder would be great to have so I can put my grocery and CVS coupons together. Have a great day!

    I have an accordion-style binder that's small. I have it separated into different compartments (dairy, produce, boxed items, etc). I pull out the coupons I know I am going to use for that shopping trip BEFORE I go to the store and put it in the front pocket of my binder. This works for me, but I'm definitely not a pro at couponing.katiecupcake1@juno.com
