My Coupon Holder
This is my preferred way of holding my coupons, just a simple 3 ring binder with football card pages inserted (don't tell my boys they will wonder where I got the pages from :) For me this is the easiest way to find my coupons. I put them in the order they are usually found in my grocery store, that way once I go down the isles I can just keep flipping the pages and not have to go back and forth. I know for some people this way is too time consuming, but for me I do not like to thumb through coupon after coupon that I can't see to find the ones I need, it also makes it much easier for me to pull out the expired ones! I have sparate pages in the back for Walgreens and CVS and then on the very last page I keep all my resturant coupons.
I have used the plastic walet size holders and while some people love this way, it to me is a pain in the behind. I am always dropping coupons and having to stop to sort through them. When in the store with kids I like to chosse what is easier while I am in the store, it does take a little more time to sort them before going to the store.
