Where do I find Coupon Binder Insert Pages???

**This post may contain affiliate links. I receive a small amount of compensation when you purchase from my links, which I"ll totally blow on waffle fries and sweet tea, y'all!**



Because I’ve been asked quite a few times lately where one can purchase pages for their coupon binders, I thought I’d compile a list of places you can get them, both online and in-store.  


Let me first clarify, I’ve found two types of pages that work well in coupon binders: baseball card holders (9-slots) and picture album pages (3×5 and 4×6 work best).  There are companies, however, that have done the leg work for you, and offer various sizes/slots for your choosing. :o)
CMO Button

  • Coupon Magic Organizer – CMO offers a complete system for starting a coupon binder, but also allows you to buy the individual pages in bundles, ranging from 3-slots to 9-slots.  CMO also exclusively carries double-sided 3-slot and 9-slot pages!  Prices start at $8.99 for 20 pages.

  • The Coupon Clutch – Yeah, you’ve heard me talk about this one plenty of times!  In addition to getting the CUTEST coupon binder/fashion accessory around, you can also order the page inserts here as well.  A 10-pack of pages starts at $3.99, and come in 3-, 4-, 6-, and 9-slot varieties.  (Pages are single-sided.)  Additionally, The Coupon Clutch has just recently EXPANDED its designs — so you now have even more selection of stylish coupon clutches!!

      Target Branding Banners

    • Target –  Did you honestly think I’d create a post, and NOT include my dearly beloved toy store, Tar-Zshay?  ;o)  In store, you can get a 60 pack of baseball card holder pages for $8.99.  You can also order them online here.

    • Wal-Mart – Yep, The Mart offers a 35 pack for $3.99.  I have not been able to find them online. (But, by all means, correct me if I’m wrong!)

    • SCROUNGE AROUND! – Honestly, I’ve scored my page inserts, by sheer dumb luck, at Goodwill (picture pages), garage sales, and estate sales!  If you’ve got the time and the patience, go for a Couponer’s dream treasure hunt!  I believe I’ve gotten over 100 sheets for less than $6!  :o)

    Winn Dixie has some terrific “bundle” deals going on this week. It looks like you must have your Customer Reward Card for these “bundles” – only one of each deal per transaction.


    PLUS, this week’s ad has a coupon for $5 off a purchase of $30 or more! (Good through 8/30/11) These “bundled” deals just got a lot sweeter!!

    Please note: Winn Dixie’s coupon policy varies from location to location, particular in terms of doubling. You may wish to consult with your local store first about their policy, to help best plan your shopping trip. :o)

    Coupon Organization and Storage: 
    Accordion File Envelopes

    Reason # 458, 342 why I LOVE Target:


    In the dollar section at Target, you can find either a 7-pocket or a 13-pocket accordion file for a buck!  These would be great if you’re just not ready for a full-fledged coupon binder, or if you simply wish for something smaller to carry to the store.  Either way, for a dollar, that’s a steal of a deal — and they come in 4 different colors!  :o)

    By popular demand (okay, really just a random show of hands by my lovely Facebook fans), I am sharing my categories for my coupon binder.    


    coupon binder categories

    By the way, if you’re still looking for a good coupon binder, I highly recommend the ultra-cute Coupon Clutch!  (Just look at the flashing picture to your left!) OR, if you’re more in need of just the materials to get coupons organized, take a gander at the Coupon Magic Organizer.   


    ……but, I digress.


    As with anything that is for YOUR use, you’ll need to make it your own.  I share this to give you an idea of how to break it down, but bear in mind you’ll need to find a system and categories that work for you!  


    For example, I know some folks who shop primarily at one store (or one chain) will organize their coupons by store layout.  Others organize alphabetically, by product or by type.  Because I categorize, and then sub-categorize, this system works for me.  Use this as a starting point, if you wish, and tweak it to make it work for you.


    More or less, a numbered item represents a tabbed section, and any lettered section represents a page.  Where there are no lettered subcategories, there is only a single page per category.  Make sense?  …and without further ado:

    Today’s Shopping Haul – Office Max and Target

    **This post may contain affiliate links. I receive a small amount of compensation when you purchase from my links, which I"ll totally blow on waffle fries and sweet tea, y'all!**



    Today, I ventured out to Office Max, for their Teacher Appreciation event, and to take advantage of their FREE tote bag offer from 3M (WYB any two Post-Its and/or Scotch tape).  My teacher goodie bag contained some sweet Post-It samples (with coupons included!!), a 12-month planner, two red sharpie pens, and a box of paper clips (one of my quirky coupon essentials).  It also contained a coupon, good for 20% off anything in the store (good today only).  


    I ended up getting two packages of Post-It Note Tabs (regularly $4.29), used (2) $2.00 manufacture coupons, and combined with the 20% off.  Out of pocket, I spent $3.34, and got that second free tote bag from 3M.


    (I realized after getting there that select Post-it and Scotch items were B2G1 free, but I didn’t need any of those items.)

    After Office Max, I ventured over to my toy store, Target.  After some G-rated cursing over forgetting my Tide coupons, I took advantage of the Hanes giftcard offer, and put the $5 towards a pair of maternity shorts.  They were priced at $25, plus I had a store coupon for $3.00 off.  Add my nickel off for using a reusable bag (that I’d just gotten for free at Office Max – hee hee!), and I paid about $18 for the shorts after taxes.  (It PAINED me to buy the shorts, for a variety of reasons, but mainly because, as I’ve mentioned before, I loathe spending more than $10 on clothes.


    Not a bad haul, but not a super-saver trip either.  But I *do recommend taking advantage of the deals at Office Max this week!

    FREE Tide at Target!!

    **This post may contain affiliate links. I receive a small amount of compensation when you purchase from my links, which I"ll totally blow on waffle fries and sweet tea, y'all!**



    I was beyond excited to see P&G reinstated their $1.00 off coupon for Tide detergent — it does NOT exclude travel size! (They’d been putting out a wimpy $0.35 coupon for several months prior.  Booo!)


    At Target, in the travel size section, you can snag a pouch of Tide for a buck; pair it with the coupon, and it’s FREE (plus applicable sales tax).


    And need I remind y’all that a “one load” pouch can be stretched nicely in to a few loads? 🙂
