I keep some store cards, a calculator, scissors, a small notepad, pens (or a marker if that's all I can find at the moment, as showcased above, haha), and sometimes a few random coupons in those front pockets.
Usually I have my deals worked up, and I only take my envelopes into the drug stores, and leave the binder in the car. I usually only take my binder into the grocery store, Target, and Walmart. I have my envelopes filled and ready for those too, but it's nice to have my whole binder for clearance deals I might otherwise miss. The drug stores are small enough that if I see something that's a great clearance deal and I know I have a coupon for, I just finish my shopping and then check my binder when I get back in the car and run back in.
...and in the back pocket, I keep rebate forms, receipts I might need for rebates, a few store cards that I use infrequently, store coupon booklets, coupons for restaurants, and occasionally I just throw inserts in there if I haven't had a chance to clip/file them yet.
