First just let me say, I HATE eating out without a coupon. That is why it's important to me to keep our restaurant coupons organized, so it's easy to find one when we need one. To keep track of these coupons our family keeps a notebook (with clear protectant pages) to store them in.
This is not the three ring binder type. It's just one solid notebook with the pages built in (portfolio style)
The notebook also houses all of the menus of places that we enjoy eating at (but does not store any other type of coupons). If we have a coupon for that restaurant it sits in front of the menu. As we get new coupons in the mail I just swap out the old for the new.
When we are having dinner out we can flip through the book and decide on what makes our tummies sing the most. And this style of notebook makes it easy for use to grab if we are headed to a movie and aren't sure where we will eat afterwards (nothing falls out!).
At the back of the notebook we keep the stray coupons, of places that we would like to try sometime. Rule #1 for this book is we never put a coupon in that we have no interest in using. Just because it's a restaurant coupon, does not mean it's going to make it in our book. I always keep a few choice coupons in my wallet too, just in case! I told you I hate to eat out without a coupon right?!
How do you keep your restaurant coupons organized?
