Some of the coupons had to be folded in order to fit into the little pocket, which I wasnt so sure about doing because 1. Im a little worried about them not scanning because of a crease and 2. I wanted to be able to see the expiration date on the coupon. Toward the end, I figured out that I could arrange the coupons so that the ones that expire soonest are at the top of the page and also, to write in the corner of the ones that I folded what the expiration date was (M/D). I was almost done by the time I figured this out so most of the food is not organized that way but as I remove the expired coupons and add new ones I will take care of it.
End result, for $20.30 I have a new Coupon Binder! At any given time, I can flip a page and see exactly what coupons I have, and which ones I need to throw out. Bonus, this binder also has an accordion section that I can put the Sale papers in or coupons that I havent yet clipped or store coupon policies that I like to carry around sometimes.
So, I took it to the store the first time yesterday (see previous post) and was showing it off to my cashier and that was what got my doubler messed up. I think she was surprised to see it. It took me about 7 hours over 2 days to migrate all my coupons from my old little folders into this binder. It was also kind of weird carrying it into the store the first time, I felt a bit self conscience about it. I figure I will get over that soon enough, for years I carried around a pink rubbermaid box that made my daughter want to die with embarrassment (Im sure this will too). Oh well.
