I’m sharing my personal table of contents with 31 categories and then 31 Section Header pages. (Kind of a lot to print, but I made them black and white since you’re already using up all your color ink printing internet coupons.) I don’t use actual tabs, I just print out the 31 category header pages and put them in clear sheet protectors. I have most of my category page numbers memorized by now, and while you’re still learning the Table of Contents is a quick flip away.
31 categories? That’s a lot, I know, but the more organized I am, the easier it is at the store. For example, for me it’s important to separate lotion, from body wash and from hair care because they’re all on different isles. I like to be able to go grocery shopping sometimes without planned coupon usage, I just flip my pages in my binder as I walk down different isles. It’s super handy!
More info that may help: I use a 3″ binder, 60 baseball card holders ($5 for pack of 30 at Target), and about 50 sheet protectors- for all my categories plus one empty sheet protector as my very first page. I use this empty protector as I shop, by pulling the coupons I need and placing them here until I’m standing at the check-out. (I also have some coupons in full page sheet protectors if I’m too lazy to cut them and a whole sheet happens to belong in the same category.)
I hope this helps show some of you one way to organize your coupons and save lots of money!
