Handmade Coupon Organizer Review & Giveaway! (+ a Discount Code!)

As most couponers know, you need your coupons to be organized in order to benefit the most from it. I'm a very frequent couponer, but I must say, I haven't been all that organized ever since I started doing it! I tried the whole binder thing, but it just didn't work for me. They're too big to lug around and I honestly don't think I could ever fill it up!

I found that for me, the best way to coupon was to keep my inserts whole (which are kept very organized) and just clip them as I need them and put them in a small accordion style holder. The best part about this: it's small enough to fit in my jacket pocket and easily fits all the coupons I plan on using. The worst part: as you can see in the photo below (which is quite embarrassing!), it can only fit the coupons I plan on using! I had to organize my coupons by store and not product, just to keep them somewhat in order. I put all my "might use eventually" coupons in the last section.

Before: What a mess!
Over the past few weeks, I can't tell you how many items I saw on clearance racks that I knew I had coupons for, but they were at home because they wouldn't fit in my little holder. I passed up way too many  opportunities to score super cheap or free goodies just because I didn't have the necessary coupons on me.

After: What a difference!
I am happy to announce that thanks to Grandma's Little Lilly, I no longer have to worry about missing out on awesome deals anymore! I received my coupon organizer this morning and immediately filled it up with my coupons and then some. A few hours later I took my nifty new organizer to Kmart to pick up some stuff, and would you believe that there were boxes full of Almay and Revlon makeup on clearance?! Yep, I was able to get 3 FREE cosmetics because I actually had makeup coupons on me instead of my usual ones!

Okay, let me tell you a little bit more about Grandma's Little Lilly and the fabulous items you can find in this Etsy shop. All items are handmade and range in size, from small receipt/cash holders to super sized coupon organizers. There are tons of different fabrics you can choose from also, so you're sure to get the perfect organizer to suit your needs and let your personal style show!

Now that the specifics are out there, let me let you all know what I thought about the coupon organizer. In 3 words...I LOVE IT! It is very well made and I can tell that it will hold up for a long time. The fabric is of great quality and the inserts are very sturdy. The labels included were more than enough than what I needed and I liked that blank labels were given because I made a section for Personal Care, but also made my own labels that said Lotion and Deodorant to stick on the insert as well.

I haven't added 100's of coupons to it yet, but I'm sure it will expand perfectly to fit them all. I can easily flip through the categories to find what I need and I love that I was able to attach it to my cart! The inserts are all separate and I thought that they would go all over the place as I flipped through them, but they all stayed put and didn't move around at all. I also like that there is enough room in the back to hold all my printed coupon policies...another thing you should always have on hand!

With all that being said, I would highly recommend this coupon organizer if you're looking for a stylish, portable method of organization. If more than satisfies my couponing needs, and at $13.95 for the regular size, I feel it is well worth the money!
