Back in August I posted my coupon folder and how I laid it out and where to buy coupons sleeves etc. It was a pretty cheap basic 3 ring binder that zipped up. It lasted for longer than I expected honestly. But after dropping it so many times finally the top ring was not closing together (meaning when I turned the pages stuff came off that hook), and the zipper part was torn (I probably could have sewn this back together).. So for Christmas I asked for a new fancy one :). I was expensive (that’s why I asked for it for Christmas bc I couldn’t bring myself to spend that much on it). http://http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007UQ8Q9E/ref=sr_ph?ie=UTF8&qid=1421348242&sr=1&keywords=coupon+binder
The outside has a pocket for pens and such (I think it comes in 5 different colors). The best part is it has two sides!!!!! I use one side for food and the other side for everything else…(Laundry personal care etc.) The rings off set each other so you can close it without them banging into one another.
SO first side dividers (basically to Kroger’s layout). The numbers on the table of contents are general categories and are the big dividers that stick out a little farther. The letters are the smaller subcategories.
Next side is the other stuff.
The straps hold the side that your not using in place, then when you finish with one side you just flip the book around and start on food. The outer edges are a super hard cardboard (maybe plastic), but It doesn’t cave into the buggy. The binder itself is more of a briefcase. It’s super sturdy.. I’ve been using it since Christmas and I LOVE it! I’ll keep you guys posted as to how it holds up over the next few months!
