Anyone else have a stash of gift cards lying around??  How about all those coupons? What do you do with those piles??

I have tried many methods for coupon organization over the years, and found that keeping them sorted by store is the best way for how to organize coupons and gift cards.

My all time favorite way to organize coupons and gift cards is storing them in a file folder holder. Not the accordion holders, as you can easily lose coupons that slide to the bottom. But in separate holders, like envelopes!

Round Up Coupons and Gift Cards

Find every single coupon and gift card you have lying around. Search your purses, bags, car, and bedrooms. Create one large pile.

Check Expiration Date

Check every single expiration date. There is just no point in holding onto an expired coupon! If you are super daring, you can try to combine this step with the next!

Sort By Store

Make piles for each store you have coupons for. Just knowing my piles, I have a lot of Bed, Bath, and Beyond coupons. I also have a lot of Buy Buy Baby coupons. I know they will each need their own piles!

Create File Holders

I love using a file folder system because it keeps things neatly contained. I created my custom mini file folders using the Spellbinder Platinum Die Cutting Machine and mini file folder die cut!
