Coupon Binder - Take Three -Photos

Goodness! It is hard to believe that I haven't posted anything in 5 days! I do apologize, I really wanted to post the binder pictures.... but I was unable to log on from my own laptop to upload my photos. My new camera never did arrive in time thanks to DHL. So, it will be arriving tomorrow. The pictures I'm going to post are okay. Not great, but they are the best I could do. It will be interesting to compare them with the new camera when it arrives

Now, onto the coupon binder, and the photos. I used the baseball card inserts that my friends suggested as well as the 4x6 photo sheets. (These were also suggested). My friend Jennifer used the Post It tabs and so I also implemented that idea to be able to really categorize each section. To get the internet printed coupons into the baseball inserts, I just folded them. Some people might not like to do this, but I don't mind. I suppose for those that like them straight and unfolded, you could use the photo sheets

I also want to add that dh had this binder just laying around the house from a job interview he had two years ago. (For the job he is at now). He never uses it, so I asked to have it! It is way cool, with handles to carry it and a zipper to keep everything intact. So here it is.... binder, categories and inserts!

I use the same organizer with the baseball card holders, I just don't have mine tabbed (yet). I love this setup. It is so easy to see what I have at a glance. The only thing is that I feel a little "strange" walking in the store with this humongo briefcase looking thing! :) LOL!

I bought some of the baseball card things the other day, but I'm still trying to figure out how to organize it. Do you just put one coupon in each slot? How many pages of the baseball card things did you need? Thanks!

I usually have several of the same coupon. I buy two papers and then my mom and a friend give me another two. So, I put a coupon for 50 cents off Fantastick (same expiration date) all in one baseball card insert. If you check out one previous entry in my blog, there are some categories to show how I grouped the coupons. Also I used about 30 baseball inserts. I was a little nervous to start to organize it, but I just had to jump in with both feet, and know that if I didn't like it, I could change it down t he road. It's all re-doable.... lol!
