As part of the continuing reorganization of the corner of my desk and everything that was contained there, I am changing where I store my coupons. Last week I showed you my main coupon binder which you can find here. In addition to keep all my coupons for the grocery store, I added retail and restaurant, and store coupons to this binder instead of keeping them in folders on my desk.
I decided to create envelopes to keep coupons I want to take with me when I go shopping. This way they aren't falling to the bottom of my purse or shoved in pockets where I forget to use them. I do this sometimes and then I'm so frustrated when I get home and realize what I did:(
I saw these envelopes on two different blogs. There were shown in a picture on Put a Little Shush in Your Home which you can find here. Check out the totally creative folders she made for her binder while you are there! When I asked her about them, she mentioned that she got the idea from another blog. Then I remembered where I had also seen them...at IHeart Organizing. Jen also provided the labels to use for the envelopes in her post which you can find here.
I started with letter sized envelopes and solid color scrapbook paper that matched the color of the labels. I cut the paper to the size of the envelope.
I used a paper cutter to trim off the flap of the envelope so I can slide coupons in and not worry about them fitting perfectly into the envelope.
These are the labels for the envelopes that I printed from Jen at IHeart Organizing. You can find them in the post I link to in the above paragraph. I did not use the "this trip" label which is why you only see three envelopes.
Finally, I glued everything together and laminated it. I'm excited not to lose my coupons anymore!
