Win-It Wednesday: The Couponizer (5 Winners!)

by Tara Kuczykowski on June 16, 2010 · 1,094 comments

Join me every week for Win-It Wednesday. I’ll be posting 24-hour giveaways at 8 a.m., 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. ET to give you plenty of chances to win!

I'm always looking for new and improved ways to organize my coupons, so I was excited when Amy Bergin, creator of The Couponizer, asked if I'd like to test drive one. The first thing I noticed about The Couponizer is that it comes with everything a beginning coupon user needs: spiral-bound coupon booklet with coupon pockets, coupon-sorting pad, shopping list, savings tracker, scissors, and a handy clear plastic pouch to store it all. This is a fantastic way to get comfortable with using coupons and learning what works for you as far as sorting and storing them.

Now I've mentioned in the past that I use the file-by-insert method, so you might wonder how a product like this could work for me. As it turns out, it's actually the perfect supplement to my current method.

I've always had a hard time organizing my printable coupons and other loose coupons that I receive in the mail. The Couponizer is great for sorting these coupons that I have a tendency to forget about, and it also has pockets for my store loyalty cards, as well as folders for storing coupons I plan to use in a given shopping trip. There's also a folder for coupons to use at checkout, so you can move them over when you actually place the item in your cart, and a folder to store expiring coupons so you can make sure they're used in a given month.

Five lucky Deal Seeking Mom readers will each win a Couponizer!

Through 7/31 you can get $1 off any order at The Couponizer. Just enter coupon code SUMMER10 at checkout!

6 Hailey Mac June 16, 2010 at 7:41 pm

I use a plastic accordion style organizer that I got in the Target dollar bins, it serves it's purpose, but I think I'm getting to the point I need something a little more coupon specific.

I use a binder with the plastic pages you use to hold baseball cards. I also have a zippered case I keep in the front for loose coupons and my scissors. In the back, I have a 3 hole punched folder for circulars. I have some page protectors that hold store coupon policies. I organized the sections by type but I might go alphabetical someday.

21 KellyH June 16, 2010 at 8:12 pm

I am currently storing my coupons in an old accordion type photo holder envelope.

25 Cindy Vo June 16, 2010 at 8:22 pm

I use letter size envelopes.

26 Kim June 16, 2010 at 8:29 pm

I just started couponing, and pretty much have a non-existent system. Right now, my small coupon collection is sorted by expiration date in the side pocket of my purse, where there are a couple dividers so I can sort out the store-specific coupons or the ones I'm planning to use that trip. This looks like a system designed for the way I want to coupon!

27 Lisa reisman June 16, 2010 at 8:34 pm

I have 1 according style folder and then 2 more see thru little bags that I made my own index lables for, but this one sounds much more organized.

28 Robin B. June 16, 2010 at 8:39 pm

My coupons are in an old file box that you would use for recipe cards!! It has dividers but most of my coupons end up just dumped in the front of the box. I have always been curious about Amy's coupon system. I desperately need an upgrade to my system!

29 AJ June 16, 2010 at 8:42 pm

I keep mine in an accordian file. Thanks!

30 Katie June 16, 2010 at 8:45 pm

I keep mine in an trapper kepper that I used when I was in junior high. It works okay, but is too big to take to the store with me. I have when I see something on sale that I need and I didn't bring the coupon with me.

31 Deana K June 16, 2010 at 8:46 pm

I keep my coupons in a large envelope and then frantically look for them in the store while my oldest son asks if he can have every other item in the store.

32 Ashli Walker June 16, 2010 at 8:50 pm

Looks like a better way to organize.

33 Ashli Walker June 16, 2010 at 8:52 pm

i currently have a plastic organizer with no name tabs

34 Idaho Jill June 16, 2010 at 8:51 pm

I use the binder with plastic dividers and tabs.

39 Kim June 16, 2010 at 9:12 pm

I keep the inserts in accordian type file folders and coupons in a small steno notebook with pockets. The couponizer would be wonderful!

40 Alicia S June 16, 2010 at 9:18 pm

I store my coupons in an envelope! :(

41 Barbara M June 16, 2010 at 9:18 pm

I have a coupon holder but it doesn't have any tabs on it & there's not much order to it.

51 bob a June 16, 2010 at 9:47 pm

I currently am using a 3 ring binger with sleeve protectors separating each grocery store, drug store, $ store, etc. In each section I have the current ad, a sleeve for coupons that apply to that store and a sleeve with a list of deals from DSM and other sites. It's a full binder, but it's the only way I can keep up with the deals at each place & the lists of things I need to get at each place. I wouldn't be able to keep track of all the deals if weren't for DSM (and not to mention all the freebies posted).
