I love me some coupons!

yes, I do!
I love clipping them, organizing them......I know, call me weird, but it's relaxing, easy to do and when I'm done, I know I've accomplished something.
Best of all, though, is using them!! I love to check and see how much I've saved and what I would have paid if I had no coupons. Even if it's not a lot...... better in my pocket than someone else's!!!
I used to have a coupon holder but in all the craziness and unorganization in my house, I lost it. I held out hope that I would find it, but no such luck. After I got over the shock of losing some good coupons I knew I had, I pulled out a trusty white envelope and used it for my coupons. Not such a good idea, though, I was just shoving coupons in, no rhyme or reason because I had no categories to go by. I also left it in the car a few times and brilliantly thought, I'll just get another trusty white envelope and then ended up having two very unorganized envelopes. I know I missed a lot of coupons that could have saved me money-bummer!
Since I'm trying to save money by using coupons, I didn't want to go out and buy another holder, so I searched online for coupon holders and found just what I was looking for on A Happy Little Family. Oh yeah, a great coupon holder - good size, great directions and free printable dividers to go along with it-perfect! It took no time to make - I think it took me longer to print off the dividers because I can only put one piece of paper in my printer at a time or it sucks them all in and makes a mess!
Here's my new holder looking all pretty and just waiting for coupons.......

and here it is with coupons, ready to shop.......

I'm in business again and in my never ending quest for organization, a bit more organized!
