Tackle It Tuesday - The Coupon Binder

Tackle It Tuesday Meme


As you know, I'm a HUGE Grocery Game (http://www.thegrocerygame.com/) fan! I have saved well over $1000 since Memorial Day! Each Sunday I save the coupon inserts from my paper and my mother's. I also normally cut and organize the coupons by brand on Sunday and place them in a 3 ring binder. I purchased baseball card holder inserts to hold the coupons (one page for each letter of the alphabet.) Anyway, essentially I am VERY organized. The last few weeks things have been a little crazy, and coupon cutting and sorting has not been on the top of my list. Today I vow to cut, sort and store the ridiculous amount of coupons I have.




Here's the disaster....




Here's the outcome...

I am an avid Grocery Gamer too and I hate it when I let my inserts pile up! I use the same binder system as you - it works so great!

From someone who clips coupons, I have to agree. That is quite the tackle!

Oh, boy do I need to devote a good tackle to my coupons, too!

I love your coupon organization. Great job!

Awesome tackle! I have never tried the grocery game but I have been intrigued to try it. How many stores do you use in the grocery game?

Oh mah lordie I'm such a coupon slacker!!! Amazing! I ♥ to save with coupons, too and will save a receipt on the fridge for weeks if it shows I saved a ton. I don't think I could stay on top of being this organized, though!

Check out my post where I attempted to build a deck box. By myself. With two kids.

Very cool! I saw a bit about the grocery game on tv once, and it looks interesting. I don't get coupons in my paper or anything like that, though, so I don't know how much it would help me.
