Here are some master coupon categories, and subcategories, to help you organize your coupons if you clip them. Using these categories to help you file your coupons can keep you from getting overwhelmed and more easily put your fingers on the coupon you need, when you need it.
I've listed all the categories and subcategories below, for you to review.
Ideally you will tweak these categories a bit to fit your family's normal purchases, adding or subtracting categories as needed.
Further, if you don't coupon heavily you may just want to use the main categories, not the subcategories listed at all. However, the more coupons you have in your organizational system the more subcategories will become helpful to you in finding what you need quickly, especially when standing in the grocery aisle.
One way to use it would be as a table of contents for your coupon binder, to remind yourself where you may have filed one of those clipped coupons when searching for something in particular, or to help you remember where you should file it to begin with.
