Q storage ideas - motherof2 - 07-30-2009 10:26 AM
i like to have my Q handy and with me at all times (or at least most of the time)
i am starting to REALLY stockpile Q and i am need of a new stoarage systum
right now i have baggies (quart size?) with the date printed on the outside
what i do is as soon as i have my Qs i cut out all that i might possiably use and put them in those baggies
what kind of Q systums do other people use
any that involve little cutting but can take along
should i just store my Q in the car?

I used to clip and discovered that took way to much time and half the coupons I never used. So I went to a clipless method. I only flip through the inserts when I need the coupon for a sale and clip it only then. I probably spend less that 20 minutes clippping my coupons for the week.
Here is a pic of my system
it is a cube with 12 spots. It is sitting on two file cabinets which I also keep inserts in. The whole setup keeps about 4-5 months of inserts with extreme easy access. I pretty much know which week one is simply by looking at it. I have tried using totes and many other things. This is an open faced system easily can be replicated with boxes or plastic storage cubes found at walmart for $2.50 ea in fun colors.

Many people have found it very manageable to use a coupon binder
Or you could use a small take a long box with envelopes to store the coupons
using categories with both the binder and the box method.
You can categorize by the way you shop the store or by Dairy. health and beauty, and so on. Most people's categories are different as each suits the person.
