The 10th Anniversary Edition of The Couponizer Review
I have been couponing for a very long time, I am 51 and I started when I was 20. For years I used old envelopes tied together with a shoestring (it was a gift from one of my Brownies). After that fell apart I had no clue what to do with my coupons and I tried one thing after another.
This is more then a coupon folder it is a system designed by someone that knew what it was like to be in the store and not be able to find the coupon you need right now!
With The Couponizer the give you a lot of tools. The multi pocketed folder, in it everything is neatly arranged, coupon list,a pocket for coupons you think you will be using a pocket for the coupons to hand the cashier.A pocket for coupons that will be expiring soon, a section for credit cards, your drivers licence, cash, gift cards or what ever else you may want to stick in there and leave the purse at home. Then there are the sections for produce, meats, canned goods ect. Towards the back are non grocery pockets for entertainment and travel, restaurants, services and more. Finally there is a section for results your receipts and a coupon tracker so you can keep track of your true savings.
How you use this: The designer of this system though of everything, scissors, and this handy sorter page. It unfolds to reveal identical sections as in the folder, you spread it out sort your coupons and then easily stick them in the book so you know where they are when you need them. They even give you a convenient plastic pouch to store it all in and since this is the 10th anniversary they also gave me that cute green tote to carry it all in!
Using the system... I loved that you are never alone with The Couponizer they have friendly how to's available for you on their web site. Supplies and refills so when you run out there is a place you can find it.Plus a place for you to find and print coupons!
Recently my storage system consisted of a shoe box with them all tossed in there because okay I don't have the time to play with coupons much these days. When I looked at the box it made me tired and I just let the pile grow. So when this came I sorted, clipped and arranged and got it all put away properly.I replaced their scissors with a pair of my own because theirs are kid sized and it hurt my fingers to use them. But that was my only dislike in this part of the process.
Then I took it to the store with me and propped it up in the baby seat of my cart. I was ready to go my dutiful husband followed me around as I sifted and sorted and found what I wanted. The issues I had at the store were with me and not The Couponizer , I am not very organized and I saw things I wanted and had to sort through the coupons I had to see if I had one and that was a mess. It took forever to do it that way. So other then the scissors I am very pleased with this system. The Couponizer has a fantastic web site to support their clients with freebies and places to find printable coupons! I can't see an extreme couponer wanting this because they use those gigantic folders however for a beginner or a casual couponer like me this is PERFECT.
You can purchase yours on The Couponizer web site for 19.95, if you already have The Couponizer and want the tote bag it can be purchased separately for $12.95.
