The Couponizer: A Review and a Giveaway

Sponsored by Tomoson.comcouponizer logo
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:
P1280017
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 pocketscouponizer1 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
When you invest in the right tools any job becoming easier and more enjoyable!!   I organized my new Couponizer last week and did a weekly town shop.  I saved 45% at Safeway using my coupons and my Safeway card to stack discounts!  In my old couponing days, I would save more than that but hey its a start!  I was also able to pick up the Walgreen’s free after rebate items and then immediately turn around and use those instant rebates on necessities.  All in all, a fun shopping trip that was made oh-so- easy by the Couponizer I had stashed in my purse.  My favorite parts of the system is the list pad and the coupons for this trip pocket that lay side by side when you open the Couponizer.  I don’t have to flick through the other pages trying to find what I need or otherwise fumble with papers.  Once I get through check out or once I get home, I stash the receipts in their own pocket so I can use them for rebates or savings comparisons.  I would take pics of my Safeway and Wags receipts like a proud mama showing off her babies but I’ve already sent them off with rebates in the mail.  I’ve never been this organized! Mahalo nui, Couponizer!
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!

SHOP: Check out the Couponizer HERE and you can take advantage of the promotional code FREEBAG (good until 2/14) where you get a Couponizer reuseable shopping bag with your purchase of the system.  Use the code to buy two Couponizers and get four shopping bags.
