If your list of New Year’s Resolutions includes getting organized, saving money, cooking more meals at home, and/or saving time, then finding, clipping, and using more coupons might be on your mind!

Here are 16 creative coupon DIY organizers, ideal for sorting and storing a handful of your most needed coupons in pretty and functional ways.
