Now that you have your Sunday coupons comes the hard part! Which organizing system will you use? The good thing is that there are so many great organizing options out there to match anyone’s busy lifestyle. Following are a couple of the most popular methods.



Using an accordion file or a wallet
When I first started clipping coupons, I started out with a small accordion file system. You can find these at your local pharmacy or grocery store in the paper product aisle. You can choose to have a small portable file system or a larger one to carry with you. I would recommend that you purchase a plastic one, which is much more durable than the paper ones. Use each pocket to store your coupons and divide them up into categories such as:

Dairy

Breakfast



Pets

Health and beauty
