One of the keys to saving a significant amount of money at the grocery store is a good organizational system so that you can quickly find the coupons you need while in the grocery store. I have had the same system for awhile – keeping my inserts intact & filed by date & then using several accordion folders for my printables & other clipped coupons. However, I have 2 accordion folders for all my categories & it gets to be a bit of a pain to have to alternate between the two folders. I’d been debating using the binder system, but I just lack the time to be able to keep up with it. So, I was excited to try out this new coupon organization system from My Coupon Keeper.
My Coupon Keeper consists of several components to help you stay organized while you’re clipping your coupons & while in the store. This is a box organization system & it comes in a clear, heavy-duty plastic box. There are 40 heavy-duty dividers you use to keep your coupons sorted – either by category or alphabetically (or however you like to sort your coupons). They have pre-printed labels all ready for you to place on the dividers – or you can write your own categories right on the divider. Or you can pick up some small mailing labels & change the labels if you have specific ones you’d like to use.
My Coupon Keeper system also consists of 2 extra 4×6 insert boxes. I use these inside the box to keep my coupons standing up in place until I fill it with more coupons (working on trying to get more inserts clipped). I also use the insert boxes as a way to store coupons that I’ve clipped but haven’t organized yet.
My favorite part of the My Coupon Keeper organization system has to be the little purse-size folder that comes with it. It is the perfect size! This is a great way to store the coupons you know you will use at the store. Or if you’re making a quick run & are only bringing the coupons you’ll need – just stash this folder in your purse or bag with the coupons you’ll need on the left side of the folder. As you find your items & the coupons to go along with them, you move your coupons from the left side to the right side. This way you know exactly which coupons you’ll need at the register. This works much better than my current system of spreading the coupons out with the items in the cart where they can get all jumbled up.
I am definitely impressed with The My Coupon Keeper & will continue to use this as my new organizational system (along with a store accordion folder I use for my store ads, coupon policies, etc). I’ve been using the system for several weeks & have found that it’s quite easy to use. Filing the coupons is a breeze with the box method & I’ve found the box fits easily in the front of the grocery cart. I can quickly scan thru the categories to find the coupons that I need.
