Keep a folder in your car for Restaurant Coupons.
We all get those little flyers in the mail with restaurant coupons but often times they get lost, thrown away, or they expire because we forget all about them. Something I've done that not only helps me keep track of my restaurant coupons but helps me save money is to put them inside a folder in my car so I have them when I'm out to eat. All you need is a standard 3-ring binder (or 3-prong folder) and some clear sheet protectors. Put the sheet protectors inside the rings of the binder and slide your coupons into the sheet protectors. If you want to get really fancy and specific, you can put your coupons in alphabetical order or group them by food category (ie: Italian, Mexican, Fast Food, Breakfast, etc). I typically just slide my coupons into a vacant sheet protector. To keep my folder from getting cluttered, I go through it once a month and pull out the expired coupons and throw them away. Here's what my folder looks like:
The front cover
The inside pocket
(This holds my "Enjoy the City" coupon book)
Sheet protectors with coupons inside
