Coupon Disaster..

My Attempt at a DIY coupon binder...  Fail..
I have been working on creating a simple to use coupon book for my mom.. Seriously.. who isn't trying to save money?    I couldn't manage to get a hold of  a pocket portfolio so I attempted to make a faux version out of one...  yeah.. didn't work

I also used a seam sealer to create pockets out of page protectors, which worked ok.....ish.
She ended up picking up one of those little plastic expanding files. She prefers to buy.. I prefer to DIY.   I ended up using a small photo book, that already had at hand, for mine.  Both of them work.  I just like being able to see my coupons as I'm going through the store, she is a better planner and likes to figure out which coupons she will use before she goes in the store.  I don't know who's system is better, but two ideas for two different systems.
What Mom prefers to use.

Mine is similar to this.

It really depends on your preference :D
Do you coupon? How do you keep them organized and with you when you need them?  Got any suggestions for us?

  1. I coupon a lot and I actually use two of the little plastic expanding ones (got them at Target for $1). One of them I use with the typical coupon categories like meat/dairy/frozen/etc. The other one I use and label each section for stores I go to regularly like Target/CVS/Rite Aid/Weis/Mall Stores/Fast Food. That way I have my coupons for each store ready to go and I also have an organized way to keep any coupons I find while at the various stores. Hope that helps!

  2. I'm with you on the preferring to DIY! A photo album sounds perfect for coupons!
