Confession time: I rarely use coupons. As in, maybe two coupons per month.
This might surprise you since I am a super saver. I'm not sure why I've never become a Coupon Queen. I always hear awe-inspiring stories from readers and friends who save hundreds of dollars on their grocery bill every month. And I always think fleetingly, "I should really look into using more coupons." And then I don't.
Here's why I haven't made it a priority:
Now, thanks to The Couponizer ($19.95), I can scratch #3 from my excuses list.
In case you haven't heard of it, The Couponizer is an impressive coupon organization system that is easy-to-use and highly effective. The system features a brilliant 8" x 5 1/4" booklet that allows me to organize my coupons into 18 categories (Baby, Baking & Staples, Beverages, Bread & Bakery, Breakfast, Canned Goods, Condiments, Dairy, Frozen Foods, Health & Medicine, Household Cleaning, Household Maintenance, Meat, Paper & Plastic, Pasta, Personal Hygiene, Pet, and Snacks). Plus, there are handy pockets for me to store entertainment and restaurant coupons. Best of all, there's a pocket specifically for coupons that are to be used for the current shopping trip (no more fumbling around for the right coupons in the check-out line...). There's even a handy shopping list pad, a pair of mini scissors, and a vinyl carrying bag.
The Couponizer is a mom-invented product and only costs $19.95.
With the help of The Couponizer, maybe I can be a Coupon Queen, after all. Now all I have to do is subscribe to the Sunday paper...
