Coupons and Receipts

“You don’t use coupons in the house, so don’t keep them there,” says Ellen Madere, an organizer in Old Lyme, Connecticut (ellengetsitdone.com). Store coupons in your car’s glove compartment in a heavy-duty zippered pouch. (We like Coupons Receiptables, $12, knockknockstuff.com.) When you’re getting gas and waiting for the pump to finish, flip through the stack to refresh your memory and clear out any coupons that have expired. Hard-core coupon users need the Couponizer ($20, couponizer.com), says Quintana: It’s a book with pockets categorized to match the aisles of a grocery store. As for receipts, trash them, except the ones for big-ticket items and potential returns. Put those in a lightweight mini file that lives in your purse.
