Question Marks Need help/advise for binder

Ok, so I'm new here and have introduced myself already and thought I was on my way. However, I am having issues getting my binder started. I got everything needed but found the BB card holders are small for a lot of coupons and hard to get to. Is it just me? From what I've read sounds like it. LOL I'm wondering what everyone else uses. Right now I'm using a receipe box with dividers but it's getting full and hard to organize. What about CD cases? Or photo books? Would like advise before I spend a lot of money on things that don't work. :>)

I have the baseball card holders and for the coupons that are too big I just fold them, some times I have to fold them in an odd way to get it to where I can see what the coupon is for.

To add to that, I keep folders in the back of my binder for restaurant or store coupons, etc.

I use the BB card holders- Fold the cpns - if I have a hugh stack of something that I think might slip out I simply use a Clip to secure it to the side of the page.

I have single size insert pages also that I put things like rebate forms in so that I can easily keep my receipts and everything together.

But you need to do what works for you.

Thanks everyone. I didn't think about paperclipping to the side of the page or the big pages. I could probably use a couple of the photo 4x6's too. I guess this is too hard for some people. LOL I'll get it. I'm already saving money, but will probably save more when organized!

Ok, so just back from Flower Factory (a great place to buy discount decor stuff and a little of everyting) and got a big binder, some folders with pockets and some 6x6 protector sheets AND a new attitude that I'm going to make this happen. Thanks again!

I have a case it binder with a zipper pocket in the front for q's that don't fit or just want to keep them really visable for me. Otherwise if my q's dont fit in the bball card holders I fold them or use more than one pocket to hold multiples. At one time I had one sheet that was just for reach tbrushes! lol...I am down to one pocket of them now...tbrushes NEVER expire : ) Actually I have donated tons of them to the food pantry and a foster care program for our county.

I use a few of the photo pockets mixed in with my BB card holders but they are a little wider, so they stick out a little further.
Sometimes I will put a few coupons in my zip pencil pouch.
I'm kicking myself now that I didn't buy more of those when they were on sale at Back to school prices. I could be using a separate one for each store.
Guess I'll have to wait until next years BTS sales.

Yeah that's what I do too. the longer coupons fit better in the photo pockets.
