Coupon Organization

Recently a friend asked, how I keep track of all my coupons and receipts. Here is my solution -

A small photo album that is meant to hold 100 photographs is the perfect size to hold coupons and receipts and only cost me $2.00. The address labels and stick-on index tabs make it super easy to thumb through.

The main labels for my book are as follows:

  1. Kids

  2. Household

  3. Cleaning

  4. Laundry

  5. Health & Beauty

  6. Frozen

  7. Dairy

  8. Condiments

  9. Soup

  10. Sides

  11. Snacks

  12. General Grocery

  13. Baking

  14. Drinks

  15. Stores

Each section is then labeled with address label stickers with a "sub-category" such as -Health & Beauty: soap, teeth, shampoo & conditioner, etc.....

It works for me especially since it is fairly compact and fits right into my diaper bag or pocketbook.
