I used to have mad couponing skillz. But I stopped couponing (and saving money!) because I was overwhelmed by the clutter of collecting/storing/organizing coupons. Just to prove that, I pulled out my old couponing box to show you:
It’s not pretty, is it? And so I was excited to get a chance to review the Couponizer. Keep in mind that I didn’t really know what it was besides being a system for organizing your coupons so that saving money is easier. But it saves more than just money! It saves sanity, time, and space. It is the organizing system that absolutely covers all the bases for the couponer and makes me think, “Why didn’t I think of this?”
Each Couponizer system comes with:
The Couponizer booklet - measures 8" tall, 6" wide, 1" deep (before coupons), 18 pockets for grocery coupons, 6 pockets for other coupons such as Restaurants, Retail, Rewards, 2 shopping pockets (Coupons to be used this shopping trip & Checkout), 3 loyalty card card sleeves, metal spiral bind, elastic closure strap, durable plastic covers. The system also includes:
- 1 Shopping List pad - 20 tear off sheets/cardboard backing
- 1 CoupTracker pad - 15 tear off sheets/cardboard backing for record spending and savings by store
- 1 CoupStacker - pre-sorting mat used to organize coupons according to pocket when clipping
- 1 Carrying Bag - clear zippered vinyl bag
- 1 pair of scissors
My only suggestion for improving the Couponizer is that the cover could be more low key. Remember when all we had were the diaper bags that shouted “baby on board” to everyone around us? Well, the Couponizer is self-promoting with its lettering and I wish it were more “quiet” looking with maybe a black or neutral cover so that I can coupon a bit more furtively—you know, kind of sneak up on the savings.
Otherwise, the Couponizer is the go-to organizing system for those who want savings with the least amount of mess and crazy. A thumbs up for this product!
