The Couponizer - Review & #Giveaway

Sponsored by Tomoson.com

I'd like to tell you I was organized and bought everything with a coupon, but it's just not the case. Coupons have always frustrated me. I lose them. I get to the store and realize - "I've got a coupon for that....and it's at home." Or I have the coupon with me, but it's somewhere in my purse.

Over the last few years, I have made baby steps toward being a more organized shopper. I even make a list every week. It's just that I lose that list 70% of the time. And I've gotten better at throwing away coupons right away if there is a slim chance I'll ever use them. That one step really cuts down on stress/clutter.

But what about the coupons I do save? They go in a zip bag in my purse. All lumped together. Some expired. Some stuck to each other....none of them organized.

In my quest for coupon sanity, I recently got my hands on the 10th Anniversary Edition of the Couponizer. To be honest, the whole concept scared me a little. I've seen the "coupon shows" and I know what "coupon binders" look like. I didn't want to haul a big binder full of coupons through the store.

Thankfully, the Couponizer wasn't a "binder". But it was pretty hefty. It can hold all of my coupons and more. The Couponizer is a bound booklet with 3 sections for coupons and sleeves for loyalty cards, shopping lists, coupon sorting mat, scissors and carrying bag.

Here are my thoughts:

  • The shopping list keeper rocks! I am always losing my shopping list and I love having it stuck in the binder. 
  • I think the loyalty card holder is fantastic. I can't tell you how many times I hand my kids my purse and ask them to dig for my loyalty cards just before I hit the register. It's sad. Now I can have them in one easy-to-find place. 
  • I gave the coupon sorting mat to my kids. They used it to make their own grocery lists. To me, it creates an "extra step" and isn't necessary.
  • I love that this set comes with a scissors and room to store it. I also added my calculator into this space. It's so nice to have everything right at hand
  • There is a ton of room for coupons and they are all organized by category. I will only keep coupons I'll actually use in here, so it should never be busting at the seams. In my opinion, there may be a few too many categories and I'd love to rip some of them out to make the booklet smaller. 
  • It's really cool that the binder has a separate restaurant, shopping, and rebates section. Having everything in one place is such an advantage!
I really liked this coupon organizer. I am hope, hope, hoping I can keep it organized and that I will be able to downgrade my shopping stress by using it. 

It is large (like a paperback book) and may not fit in all purses. I upgraded purses for the winter (bigger so it can hold mittens) and it fits the couponizer just fine, but it does not fit in my "usual"  purse. 

All-in-all, I think it's a great product and just might be what you need to get yourself organized. And organization does save money!

I love that I can take all my coupons, and that they'd be organized, and I could take advantage of more bargains.

That is a great way to keep everything together. Will end up saving more money just from being organized.

I love the coupon organizer. That is my biggest problem when it comes to couponing. I can never find the coupon I need when I need it. This system appears to solve that issue.

Thanks for the giveaway.

It sounds like whoever came up with this organizer thought of everything. I like how it is so complete down to the scissors and even restaurant section.

The coupon organizer looks like a life safer - I have done coupons in the past, but have really gotten in to it again and learned many more ways to save with coupons! I am really struggling with the organization and this would solve so many problems for me! Winning blessings to all!
