Making a Simple Change to My Coupon Binder


My current filing system.

Currently, I file coupons in my binder by insert date.  Check out my post 10 Adjustments That Made Couponing Work for Me for an in-depth description.  It works well for me.  Used in conjuncture with a few coupon databases bookmarked on my phone I can coupon on the fly.  Until…I can’t get the internet to come up while in the store.  Talk about raining on my parade.  I’m sure I’m not the only one this has happened to.

So, I started to brainstorm.  Then one morning as I’m previewing the upcoming Sunday coupons, it dawned on me.  What if I had a list of each week’s coupons printed out and placed with those coupons.  A quick copy and paste of the Sunday preview and that week’s coupons will be at my disposal with the flip of a page.  It would only add a few minutes initially, but save time and money when my phone’s internet fails me.  Therefore, starting this Sunday, I’m going to give it a try.  I don’t know why I didn’t think of it sooner.  If you try it too, let me know what you’re thoughts on it are.

Happy Couponing!!!


This works and doesn’t.  The reason it doesn’t work so well, is that I found that we got an extra Smartsource insert this Sunday.  This insert isn’t listed on which could be a problem.  I’m wondering if I can find someone local with full lists of coupons from my area.  If not, then I suppose one would have to create their own list.  That doesn’t save much time though, so I’m crossing my fingers that I can find someone close that has the list of this week’s coupons ready to print.  Till later my friends.

Happy Couponing!!!
