Wow! Very cool. I'll have to start my binder!

(Of course, knowing my luck, I will never see a good clearance deal again as soon as I put effort into my coupons.)

Hello! I am new but I have been couponing for a while. I do the binder method but organize everything by alphabet. It is just easier for me to see a product in the store and go straight to the letter. There are somethings like Cereal that I will just put in the C section or toothbrushes in the T section. HTH

BC Walmart had some clear photos sleeves that work perfectly for larger coupons. Some sizes are 3 1/2" x 5" (3 pockets on a regular 8x10 page).

Default Pictures Please?

I would love to see pictures of peoples binders and what they've done. In the OP the binder she described is the one I bought at Walmart for only 2.5o the other day! :} {which I was so excited about since I skipped over buying it at $5 lol}

anyways, I'm just trying to figure out the best way to go about this.

Thanks!

Default I found what works for me!

I wanted to share this idea incase others like me need a suggestion. I tried doing the baseball card holder inserts in my binder but found the slots were too small for a lot of my coupons and didn't want to have to sit and re-clip or fold my coupons and what-not to make them fit into those slots. So, I did some searching and found "3-Pocket Page Currency Pages" on Amazon which are PERFECT for me! The sheet is a standard 8 1/2 x 11 size with 3 slots (3 1/2 x 8 each), the slots are top loading and durable. One box of sheets costs about $20, but you get 100 sheets! I now have no problem fitting my coupons into the slots, I have labeled my slots, so for instance, I have one slot for toilet paper & put all my toilet paper coupons in one slot in order by expiration date. It is easy to take the coupons in and out, and I have a zipping binder so nothing falls out. This is working so well for me I just had to share!

This is great advice. Thank you! Any recommendations on how many sleeves one might need?

For a Newbie, maybe 4-5 pages of each size you can find.
I'm a hardcore couponer, so I bought 50 pages of 3 different sizes = 150 pages total
Buy the 3-4" ringed binders (with zipper closing), 1" rings will fill up too fast.

Walmart has several sizes of photo sleeves, in the Photo Dept.
You'll find the baseball card sleeves near the cash registers at the front of the store.

Also check Staples, Office Max and other stores that sell baseball cards.
