Organizing

Sorting

Now that you have started your collection, you need to figure out a way to organize your stash! I know a lot of people like the binder method where you take a 3 ring binder & use sports card protector sheets to store your coupons. I tried that for a while, but eventually wound up back in my plastic box. I use legal size envelopes with the flaps cut off & an index card stapled to it.

My categories are:

Air Fresheners
Baby
Baking
Batteries
Beverages
Breads
Candy/Snacks/Cookies
Canned
Cereal
Cleaners – Kitchen & Bathroom
Cleaners – Laundry
Condiments – Sauces – Dressings
Dairy
Deodorant
Dog – Pet
Feminine
Frozen
Lotion
Make-up
Meats
Medicines-Acid/gas reducers
Medicines-Allergy
Medicines-Pain relievers
Medicines-Vitamins
Medicines-Other
Paper & Storage (bags, foil, plates)
Pasta/Rice/Helpers
PB & Jelly / Syrup
Produce
Shampoo – Hair color
Shaving
Skin care
Soaps & Gels
Tooth care
Restaurant
Misc

Then I also have an envelope where I keep my rebate forms that will need to be mailed in if I purchase the product.
