Presenting…My Coupon Organizer!

I am inundated with coupons and more coupons every week, especially here in the US, when almost every shopping trip involves coupons of every kind imaginable: free bonus gifts, additional discounts, special purchase prices and so much more.  It’s so hard to keep track of  every coupon that I have earned, and sometimes I find myself tearing my hair out because some coupons had expired without me knowing it.

I store my coupons in my purse, and also some on my kitchen counter.  And I find myself rummaging for the coupons every time I go shopping…sometimes it gets embarrassing, you know.

So when I stumbled upon this 7-pocket accordion file in the Target Dollar section last week, I immediately knew I could use it as a coupon holder/organizer.  It comes in 4 colors :neon pink, neon green, blue and white patterned, and black.  I chose the black one, because I didn’t really want to draw attention to my coupon organizer.

See how nifty it is?  It fits snugly into my palm, just like a long wallet would!

You can pretty much use it to store anything from receipts, bills, cards…but I choose to use it as a coupon organizer.  Inside, it is compartmentalized with label holders too!

 It comes with those regular label stickers for you to customize it to your liking.  However, you know I can never be contented with mere white labels, so I snagged these at Target!

Pretty printed paper tape, or better known as washi tape!  4 for $4, but the ones I got, in the reddish and pinkish hues  were on sale for $3!

I stuck them onto the plastic label stickers, wrote out the categories and then fixed them onto the label holders in the coupon organizer!!

I couldn’t believe how pretty that turned out!  Next, all I had to do was segregate my coupons into the different compartments!

Totally loving this!  And best of all, if I needed a change in the label names, all I had to do was tear out the washi tape labels and create a new one!

…I’m off looking for other organizing opportunities now! :D

    I saw this series about how people in US saved lots with these coupons. With proper strategies and diligent compilation, some of them bought groceries worth thousands of dollars yet need not pay a single cent! How clever right! You should do that too ;)
