I finally got it just right

Ever since I got serious about couponing I've been trying to decide on an efficient method to organize and store my coupons. I started with your typical coupon folder but I quickly outgrew that.

Then I moved to a larger accordion style folder but there weren't enough sections to properly divide them, plus it was cumbersome to try and carry it anywhere. Most recently I moved everything to a shoe box, using index cards as dividers. But that was too large and my "sections" often shifted and moved.

I was starting to feel a bit like Goldilocks - too small, too wide, too big...

Now I have it just right.

I went to Officemax yesterday in search of the perfect "coupon keeper" and had ideas of getting a large index file of some sort. Then I saw this.



It's just perfect for what I need. Not only does it have a handle to make it convenient to transport, but it has 19 tabbed sections so that I can organize it easily. And it's cute.


Really cute.

Ok that is a coupon organizer. I like to use coupons but don't think I have that many!!

I love that. I'm more of a file-type than binder-type myself. I really love that.

Very pretty, But I use a 3 ring binder with baseball card holders so I can see each coupon and it works wonders. It's called the CRAZEE COUPON BINDER... Anyway I could get you information. :) It's way easier than a binder IMO

:) thanks for following me. Did I do good?

I LOVE the organizer! Mine is a Plain Jane version of the same and it works for me! Here is how I prepare them for filing them in my box:

Anon- I know the brand name is DiVoga; it's a new line of products they are selling that are more decorative than your normal office supplies. I checked online too but they don't have this listed.

You may want to call your store and see if they have it by asking specifically if they carry the DiVoga supplies. Sorry I couldn't be of more help. But I'm glad you liked it!

OMG! I have this file!!! I just bought it a week ago to file my bills and other papers to keep by my computer. If they're loose the babies take them and they are never seen again. The papers, not the babies, although come to think of it I haven't seen Ryan in a while...

That's a RAD coupon folder. Wow. I'm always looking for something bigger and better, so thanks for posting it. Much cuter than ALL of the others!!!
