If you are looking to keep your coupons organized, check this out!

 

Five Star 2 Inch Zipper Binder, 3 Ring Binder, 6-Pocket Expanding File, Durable, Blue (72534)

When I first started couponing, I wanted all of my coupons with me to grab as many deals as i could.  I saw many folks were using the “Zipped binder method” and decided to get it a try myself.

Trying to keep organized, I decided to give the zippered binder method a shot.

 

 

Mine is a purple-ish color (lol) and I STILL LOVE IT! (This is the Five Star Zipper Binder that I personally have.)

I also noticed folks used baseball card holders to keep their coupons and that it worked REALLY well when sorting coupons into categories or “like” products together.

(Later on I found these sleeves specifical  JUST FOR COUPONS!! No more having to fold my coupons! These sleeves come with a variety of pocket sizes for ALL the different sized coupons! Can we say SWEET!!!!)

Below I will include the complete list of what I originally ordered and the total! LOVE LOVE, that Amazon delivers in 2 days or less!


So these are the exact items I purchased:

Five Star 2 Inch Zipper Binder, 3 Ring Binder, 6-Pocket Expanding File $19.99 
Regular baseball card holders for $5.72 
(Substitute with Ultra Pro Coupon Saver Starter Pack $9.99 and save almost $4 more)

Order Summary

Items (2): $25.71
Shipping & handling: $0.00

Total before tax: $25.71
Estimated tax to be collected: $1.54

Order total: $27.25
