How To Keep Your Coupons Organized
- Develop a filing system. Most couponers organize their coupons by category (dairy, frozen foods, deli, etc.) or by expiration date, but it's not the only way to go.
- Find a container to hold your coupons.
- File coupons the same day you get them.
- Purge regularly.

Can coupons be stacked?
For example, if a store item is on sale or at a clearance price, you can stack a manufacturer's coupon on top of a store coupon for a double-dip discount. The combination of stacking these coupons on a sale price item often means shoppers can purchase the item for less than a dollar or even get the item for free.
Where should I keep gift cards?
I keep them in my purse in a credit card wallet with a small sticky note on each one and change the amount on the sticky note when I use any of the money off a card. My wallet only holds the bare necessities, so I also carry an old coin purse that I use for gift cards and store loyalty cards.
