I know it has been a while since my first post about Creating your own Kitchen Binder so I thought I would give an update on what to start filling your Kitchen Binder with.

In our first post we talked about decorating a plain binder and making it look pretty with scrapbook elements. Today we are going to talk about the first 3 things that I fill my Kitchen Binder with.

For my Kitchen Binder I like to have LOTS of clear plastic sleeves to fill my binder to the max.

Kitchen Binder: Restaurant Coupons


The first section of my Kitchen Binder is the Restaurant Coupon section. Now I know it sounds a bit odd to store restaurant coupons in a Kitchen Binder that is supposed to help keep one more organized in the kitchen but after receiving coupons in the mail week after week and them constantly cluttering up my kitchen drawers I had to make a more organized space for them. So in a clear plastic sleeve that I labeled with some scrapbook stickers I store restaurant coupons and take out menus in this one space. This section keeps my drawers cleaner and I always have take-out/dine-in coupons on hand for those rare nights I don’t feel like cooking.

Kitchen Binder: Store Ads


Sunday papers have the most ads. Some of these store ads I like to save for future reference in the week. So in a similarly labeled plastic sleeve I store all of the store ads that I typically shop at. Having these weekly ads in my Kitchen Binder helps make planning my shopping trips a bit easier.

Kitchen Binder: Store Coupons


To go hand and hand with the store ads are all the coupon inserts. I’m not much of a couponer, nor do I claim to be any kind of expert on them, but I do try and use a coupon when I’m on a mission to buy a specific item like haircolor for example. Instead of having a whole binder dedicated to couponing, I just throw all of the coupon inserts into another dedicated plastic sleeve in my Kitchen Binder. When I need to go to the store to buy something specific, first I’ll check the coupons to see if I have any and then I’ll check the store ads to see if there are any sales on the items that I need.

So there you have it, the first 3 parts of my Kitchen Binder. We aren’t done with our Kitchen Binder just yet so stay tuned for more updates in the coming weeks.
