When I first started clipping coupons last year I needed something to put my coupons in. At first I thought I had to go to Staples, Office Max and or Office Depot to find something that would work as a coupon holder.
I picked something out that seemed like it would be a good fit but it was 25.00 plus I had to by inserts for it. So it ended up costing me 70.00 just to get started. Well, I went into target and found a bi-fold container for 4.99 and tool all the other stuff back to whichever over priced store it was.
The cheap one lasted just fine and I could have gotten a few more months out of it if I hadn’t dropped it in a tub of barbeque chicken. So it was pretty disgusting until I found a replacement. And no, I didn’t throw any of the coupons away. That’s valuable money there you know.
I would have to say that at any given moment I have 500.00 in savings. Keep your hands off though, it’s how we’re going to make it from month to month until the economy turns around. That and my supplemental income from my blog.
I’ve been keeping my out for the perfect one and I found it and PURCHASED it.
This is my new coupon holder. Isn’t it lovely. It’s from Crunchy Cute.
As a thank you for the advertising on my blog Cathy tricked it out with labels. That’s something I didn’t have before. I think that will help me save some time at the grocery store as I’m hunting down last minute coupons to get something free. Why can’t I get a copy of sale prices sent directly to my house so I can plan out my whole shopping trip?
Cathy makes beautiful coupon holders and Designer organizers.
