If you are using the binder method, you will need to purchase the following materials:
- A 2″ 3 Ring Binder
- Pencil pouch
- Calculator (not pictured, since my children think it is a toy)
- Sticky notes
- An expandable coupon holder (recommended, not necessary)
- 2 sets of baseball card holders (available at Target for 9.99 each set)
- Clear paper sleeves to hold ads and store coupon policies
- Table of contents page and section divider pages (available to print on our site)
- Title page with name and phone number in case it gets lost (feel free to personalize this, as it is your binder)
|Title page||Pencil pouch & ads|
|Rewards cards||Store coupon policies|
|Table of contents||Section divider page|
|Baseball card sleeve w/ coupons||Expandable coupon file for weekly shopping|
Hopefully this helps you to visualize how someone’s binder looks so that you can make your own. If you are not organized in your couponing then it makes it very difficult to do it well. Keep up with taking out your expired coupons and inserting your new ones weekly so that it doesn’t backlog. Come up with your own system of clipping and separating. I actually have my 5 year old daughter help me clip so that she can practice her cutting skills and she’s really good. Although my husband teases me that I’m running a sweat shop. 🙂 She only does the ones that I print from the internet and if she wants to move on to something else she can, but usually she likes helping mom.
Have fun getting yourself started!
