Keeping my receipts organized is no longer a problem for me. I don’t have coupons all over the place either.
I bought a plastic coupon holder that has its own elastic band closure. It has many plastic dividers. I keep my receipts and coupons in it. There are only about three stores I shop regularly. My grocery store receipts go all together in one, another store in a different one, and miscellaneous receipts in one.
I divide my coupons into two sections, food and non-food items. I seldom have more than 15-20 coupons. When I make out my grocery list, I pull the ones I plan on using and put them in a different divider with my shopping list.
I usually keep receipts until I relialize I don’t want to return any anything. Stale dated coupons are purged every week.
I hate a messy purse (probably from being a cashier). I usually clean my purse daily, when I sit at the TV. Otherwise, flybabies clean their purses every Friday.
