Since I don’t live in double or triple coupon territory, and since we don’t eat a lot of processed food, I don’t have a huge selection of coupons at one time. This allows me to keep my coupon system very simple.
I use 2 dollar store coupon style accordions, a Vera Bradley Coin Purse and then I store them all in a Vera Bradley cosmetic bag. Did, I mention I live outside of a city that hosts a huge Vera Bradley discount sale every year?
I use one folder for grocery, cosmetic, dog food and household coupons. To add a bit more organization to the system I use envelopes to further divide up the sections.
I simply cut the envelopes down to fit the folders. I also cut off the flap of the envelopes so that it is easier to reach inside them to grab the coupons I need.
I use this folder to store my restaurant and mall store coupons. I organize them by type of restaurants, and store, as well as if they are in our town, or in a neighboring town.
In the coin purse, I keep all the store cards that I don’t use on a regular basis. Those that I do use at least once a week are stored in my wallet.
Both folders, and the coin purse fit very well in the cosmetic kit. I keep it in my car at all times. It also fits well in the front of a grocery cart.
My system may not be fancy but it suits me just fine. Now if I could just get better with searching for and printing internet coupons. But hey, one inch at a time right?
