Coupon Binder

Man, I feel so behind in...life. So a quickie, if you will. A video of my coupon binder for anyone who wants to get started and may have accumulated a ton of coupons last Sunday! I had to keep it very succinct to stay within the allowable 100 MB to post, so if you have any questions or need further clarification, just leave me a comment.

And here are my categories:
Air Freshener
Baby
Baking
Boxed
Bread (& grains)
Breakfast
Candy
Canned
Cleaning
Condiments
Cooking (ingredients)
Dairy
Dental
Drinks
Fridge (& produce)
Frozen
Grocery
Hair
Household (batteries, cat treats, the like-)
Hygiene (all others not specified in other categories)
Laundry/Dish
Makeup
Meds/Vits
Paper/Plastic
Pkg Meat
Shaving
Snacks
Soap/Deo

I tend to over-categorize, so this may be a bit much, so adapt for your needs.
And get the 3-inch binder- I'm telling you, you'll fill it faster than you think! I've been doing it less than 2 months, and mine is more or less full.
I will try to post some of my recent deals and freebies soon, as well as details of my life outside of couponing. (What remains of it...)
Coupon Q's? Leave a comment. I'll do my best.

I of course have lots of questions and whatnot from what I have been doing so far...but your binder rocks! It makes more sense now seeing it rather than trying to picture it. You are a coupon-ing machine!

Hi Jessie! I sent you an email but usually land in everyone's spam folder. I'm not sure if you remember me from LP but I found your blog from a link on Hannah's blog. I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy reading your blog. Your couponing skills are amazing! You inspired me to start clipping coupons again. Like Hannah, I have so many questions too. You have a such a beautiful family! :)

Thanks I have been thinking about that binder since we talked about it. I have been using coupons the last few weeks and it makes a big difference. I"m excited to get more into it.

Impressive!

You're out of control!

I've used coupons all of my married life, but I think I'm missing something. I guess I need the shopping tips about freebies, etc. Your binder is cool! Do you lug it with you to the store or are you organized enough to plan ahead? Do you clip coupons even for things you never use?

Holly said...

I am a coupon newbie but have set using them more as one of my goals this year. This coming Sunday I am going to start collecting. It may take me a while to work up to a binder--baby steps for me.

Maybe I'll be ready for the grocery game soon. Ish.

Good job with all of your organization and massive coupon stash!

Hope you used COUPONS to buy the binder and baseball card holders.

May I say that your handmade, colorful tabs are even cuter in person?

LouAnn said...

Very cool Jessie! I'm a former LP'er too, Kim sent me your link. My coupon binder looks just like yours, but I don't have quite as many tabs. I use bbcard holders too - makes finding the right coupon SO convenient. I've only been seriously couponing for 3 weeks but so far have saved a ton of money!

Just stopped back to grab your coupon binder categories. I spent a week with LouAnn and am motivated by her coupon binder.
