I was recently sent a copy of the new Couponizer to try.  This is a coupon storage and organization system that was designed by a couponing mom and has now been updated with even more features.

It is a 7 piece system with:

  • The Couponizer® – 8 x 5  booklet with 18 Grocery coupon pockets, 4 Non-grocery coupon pockets, 3 gift card/shopper loyalty sleeves, shopping pockets
  • Shopping List – 20 page tear off list pad
  • CoupStacker – pre-sorting mat color coded to match the system pockets
  • CoupTracker – 15 page spiral bound list pad
  • “Your Guide to Smart Savings” – instruction booklet with spending strategy and coupon tips
  • Scissors
  • Carrying Bag – clear vinyl zippered bag

I tried out the system and found that is was a good system for those getting started.  The pockets are organized by location in the store and there is a pocket to put coupons you plan to use on a trip.


One feature that I love is the “CoupStacker”.  It made sorting out cut coupons much easier.  I am normally sitting in the middle of chaos with little stacks all around me and I spend more time remembering where each stack than I do actually cutting the coupons.

The pockets are large enough to hold coupons from one paper a week.  The book is very sturdy and has a large sprial ring to allow it to expand as large as you need it too.  It also has a plastic bag that it fits into so that you can’t inadvertantly lose any coupons.

One thing to note:
If you buy more than one paper a week this system will probably not work for you to hold all of your coupons.  It will give you help on getting organized but you will need something with larger pockets.

Now that you have my thoughts how about a chance to try it for yourself??
