Everyone organizes their coupons in different ways.
My friend Micheal-Ann puts her's in alphabetical order in a clear rubbermaid shoe box thingy w/ a lid. On HCW, some people have 3 ring binders w/ baseball card type clear holders.
I put my coupons into 2 of these 13 compartment expandable check folder thingys.....found right now @ the dollar spot @ Target! (mine are from this summer, but they have 'em out again!)
I have 2 folders, one for food (which I carry in my purse) and one for cleaners, etc. which I keep in my car. Within each folder, I have my coupons organized by categories, such as frozen, dairy, canned goods, snacks, baking, drinks, etc.
The trick to couponing is this:
**always have your coupons w/ you!
**Look at your local grocery store ad (see my homeland ad in the photo?) and circle the deals you plan on getting. I match up my coupons to these deals before I ever leave the house. It makes it easier to get through the store, and I'm not fumbling for my coupons all the time!
**Keep your grocery ad's so that you can price-comp @ Wal-Mart.
