Coupon organizer saves time, money

If your new year’s resolutions include clipping coupons, make sure you organize them. If your coupons aren’t organized before you shop, you’ll waste time (and money) sifting through them at the store.

Coupon organizers range from checkbook-size to large three-ring binders. And their price varies as well, from just a couple dollars to more than $15.

If you use lots of coupons, opt for a ring binder with plastic-sheet inserts (the size used for baseball cards works well). Organize coupons first by category – meats, dairy, frozen foods, etc. – and then by product. This way, you can see the coupons. For example, group all your cereal coupons (by brand if you like) together. Look for coupon organizers at stores such as Target, Meijer and Wal-Mart and online at amazon.com.
