    • Last week I shared two options of how to organize coupons that required the least amount of time. Today I'm detailing two other options that get increasingly more organized but also more time consuming.

      Organization is really something that is different for every person so these are just ideas.  I've seen lots of variations off the 4 options that we have gone through so find something that works for you.

      In general for a binder this is so easy to make yourself so I would encourage you to NOT pay a ton of money to buy something someone else already put together. (In case you didn't get my underlying feelings I wouldn't encourage you to go with this method in the first place but...)

      All you need to get to make your own binder:

          * Pack of 6-12 tab dividers – label with sections of your store "refrigerated, frozen, meat" etc.

          * Baseball Card Protector Sheets (sold on eBay 50 for $6 — tip don't search for coupon sleeves they charge more)

          * Large 3 Ring Binder that zips up

      You can add different sleeve pocket sheets like photo sized pockets or even full sheet protectors to make larger categories rather than having coupon by itself.  Another thing to add might be a zipper pouch for scissors or to hold coupons you plan to use, I'd wait for back to school sales when these are a penny.

      In the end a binder should cost maybe $15-$20 to put together depending on how nice you go with your 3 ring binder.  The one I have in the video above cost about $15 from Staples.

      In the end, find a system that allows you to be organized to your liking and using the least amount of your time.  Remember your time is valuable so blend things together and get creative to find a workable system for you.

      I know many of you love your binder, so share with us ways that you make a binder take less time or more doable for the average person.
