How to organize your coupons with a Coupon Box…

Everyone has been waiting patiently to learn how to organize your coupons using a coupon box. Although, the binder method as worked wonders for many people, the Coupon box is my new best friend. People all over are switching to the “box method” mainly just to save time with organizing.

This is my first every “vlog” (video blog) so don’t laugh to hard at my over-pronunciation and my semi-robot voice. :) I hope this helps you as you create your box. Now, that I have become a box “expert” (haha!), we now have professional envelopes made. If you are interested in purchasing box, go here to get yours now. :) The problem I found with making your own box (even after laminating) is it won’t last long. These new envelopes will last alot longer.

Let me know what you think about me doing videos for the future. I had fun with it, and sometimes videos are easier to understand than reading a novel.

    You did great..I haven’t switched yet that binder took me so long to make I hate switching to another one..but the binder is getting old folding those coupons. It looks like you laminate the index cards too right?

    • Carrie - October 12, 2010 @ 4:34 pm

      Ginger, I hated switching too, but I am SO happy I did. It saves a TON of time with organizing. Have you watched my video blog on my box yet? I laminated the index cards and envelopes together.

    I made the switch, I was so sick of filling so thanks for the AWESOME vlog!!!

    This video is awesome! I think I’m going to make the switch too. The binder is taking a considerable amount of filing time. Thanks for your help!

    Ok I finally got the stuff for the box but have a crazy question..when you staple the index card to envelope and you put the lid on box does it not bend the top of the index card? It looks like it would be to tall for the box? Am I making any sense..LOL

    great idea ..i saw a couple of women the other day in okc carrying boxes like these and wondered how it was working

  • mila - December 16, 2010 @ 11:04 pm

    great idea!

    Thank you very much for the video.. It helped me a great deal and was wonderful to watch especially since I am very visual when learning new things. I will be trying the coupon box instead of the binder. It seems easier. I am new to this so I am going to give it a try.. :)

    Where do you get your envelopes laminated? How much does it cost?

  • erika - April 01, 2011 @ 10:48 pm

    On my way to Wal-mart right now to get the materials to make my coupon box this will be my weekend project. I am so excited. I have tried the other systems and found them so hard to work with. Thanks for sharing. Can’t wait to attend your class.

  • Amanda - April 05, 2011 @ 10:23 am

    Thank you for all of the great tips and information!!!
    Can we purchase your new evelopes online yet?

  • Stephanie - May 22, 2011 @ 3:55 pm

    I’m about to make my first coupon box. I am super excited. I can’t wait to be able to attend one of your classes. Thanks so much for your website and sharing all of your knowledge and ideas with us!

    I purchased a box with 60 of your envelopes at a recent coupon class. I love the envelopes! Much better than using a regular envelope and index card; I can flip thorough yours so much quicker.
    I need to purchase more envelopes from you (yes, I have more than 60 catergories), and can’t find anywhere on the website to do that. Please give me some info, so I can get more envelopes.

    Thank you!

    Thank you for all your great tips! After a short (and very uninformed!) run with couponing following newlywed bliss, some health issues followed by moving completely upended that. Now I’m getting back on track, and hopefully better than ever.

    One suggestion– the vlogs are definitely helpful, but I’d suggest writing it out as well, even if it’s in bullet point summary format. One reason is that some people, like myself, actually prefer reading (or perhaps have computer issues with videos?) Another is that if I ever need a reminder, it would probably be helpful to be able to just skim the written version in 1 minute than watch an entire video.
