HOWTO: Keep Track Of Coupons

Provided that you’re able to find any you’re interested in, clipping coupons can be a good exercise in thrift. How then to manage all those tiny slips of paper? Here’s some options.

Index card box + index cards $4.56.

The Coupon Wallet $24.95 + S/H. A touch pricier, but makes organization easy. More of a clutch than a wallet, it’s still discreet enough to bring along to the store.

• Alternatively, The Grocery Game tracks sales at stores in your neighborhood and matches them with coupons that have been available in your local paper.

• Or you could just use a few standard envelopes. Cheap! — BEN POPKEN
