I've moved!

Coupon Binder

We finally made it through all of the tabs in the {Family Binder}!  Now I'm going to go back and show you what got me started with the binders.
I started {couponing} a little less than a year ago.  I was inspired to start by {Moneywise Shopper}.  It is an on again, off again thing for me.  It is a little time consuming if you don't keep on top of it, but it is such a thrill when you spend $39 (including tax) for a bill that should have been over $110.  I try to schedule one day a week to clip and organize my coupons.
I have one big binder to keep all of my coupons in.  Some people use one binder for food and another for other products.  I use baseball card plastic pages to put the coupons and got sticky tabs to label my sections.  Both of these I found in Walmart. 
These are the sections I included:

For Food:
~Beverages
~Meat
~Snacks
~Breakfast
~Dairy/Refrigerated
~Frozen/Canned
~Sauces/Toppings
~Rice/Pasta/Bread
~Baking/Produce

For Other Products:
~Cleaning
~Paper/Plastic
~Kids/Pets
~Hair/Soap/Lotion
~Razors/Deodorant/Feminine
~Dental/Makeup/Medicine

Some places to get coupons include your local paper, some magazines, your local grocery stores ({Publix} has store coupons at the stores and online.  Join their clubs to receive extra coupons in the mail.  {Target} has store coupons online.  {Kroger} has digital coupons that load onto your store card.), through {websites},  on {Facebook} and Twitter, and in packaging (Never recycle the cereal box without looking inside!).
A lot of the websites require you to give your e-mail address.  I created a separate e-mail account so that I could keep any spam separate from my regular account.

Also, keep in mind that there are two kinds of coupons, a manufacturer's coupon and a store coupon.  This is important, because you can use the two together for even more savings.

Let us know if you have any other good sources for coupons.
