- Envelope system – coupons are clipped and stored in envelopes, organized by category and/or brand
- Filing system – coupon inserts are not clipped. Each insert is placed in a file, labeled with the date & insert type (ie SS 5/1). Coupons are pulled out as needed.
- Coupon box – using a recipe (or similar) box. Dividers are customized for your own categories. Can be portable.
- Custom coupon organizers – such as The Couponizer, Coupon Organizer, a Coupon Wallet, or Paula Deen’s Coupon Organizer
- Coupon binder – coupons are clipped and placed in protective pages. They can be organized by category, brand, or even set up to match the aisles in your favorite store.
- Combination – My current system is a combination of binder & filing. My inserts (except 2 of each) are filled in an accordion file, according to date & insert type. The coupons I have printed or received in the mail, and from 1 copy of each insert are cut & put into the left binder according to the aisles at my favorite grocery store. The right binder (see the pictures below) contains dividers for each store I shop at, their coupon policies, and a 3-pocket page to keep store coupons and each trip’s coupons.
