For many of us coupons may seem like more of a burden than a blessing. The truth is, coupons can be a great way to save money, but they can also become very time-consuming and overwhelming if unorganized and cluttered. As hard as I’ve tried with binders, envelopes, etc…I’ve always struggled with finding a good way to organize my coupons and make them accessible to me when I need them. I’ve been in search for a solution and now know that when it comes to saving money, as well as precious time and energy…The Couponizer is the way to go!
Realizing that overspending diminishes progress towards family financial goals, Amy Bergin developed The Couponizer…an award winning organizing and shopping system for coupons and other discounts. Designed to solve all the challenges associated with using coupons, it’s no wonder that more and more beginners as well as season couponers have turned to The Couponizer for help.
I am a huge fan of helping my family save money and finding great tools to help me do just that. That’s why I was excited when I learned I was going to have the opportunity to review The Couponizer and share my thoughts with you.

Along with my Couponizer, came a Couponizer Reusable Shopping bag. For their For the LOVE of Shopping and $aving promotion, from February 1st-14th (or while supplies last), every Couponizer purchased will receive a FREE bag like the one I received. They will also be for sale for $3.99 for anyone who wants more than one. It’s a great size and wonderful quality.
Of course, I was especially interested in checking out The Couponizer. Upon opening it, I was very impressed with all that was included. Not only did I find The Couponizer booklet, but also a shopping list pad, a CoupTracker Pad, a CoupStacker, a carrying bag and a pair of scissors. My first thought was ‘Wow…everything is here to make couponing easier than ever!’.
The quality of The Couponizer stood out to me right away. I was very pleased with the durable plastic covers. With as much use as a coupon organizer gets, quality is a must…so this was something I really appreciate. I can see this lasting me a very long time.
I also love the elastic closure strap. It’s a great way to keep everything in place without worrying that it will fall out and become unorganized. I can’t tell you how many times I opened one of my handy envelopes, only to have everything fall out…which is why I appreciate such a simple solution like the closure strap so much!
I had a feeling the Couponizer would be a great way to organize my coupons for my shopping trips, but did not expect for it to be as useful as it has been when it came to clipping coupons and laying them out in front of me. The scissors are a must, and so is the CoupStacker which is a pre-sorting mat to help organize coupons according to pocket when clipping. What a great way to lay everything out and help me see exactly what I have. I love it!
Inside The Couponizer comes 18 pockets for grocery coupons, 6 pockets for other coupons such as Restaurants, Retail, Rewards, and 3 loyalty card card sleeves. I can’t think of anything else it could include to help me stay more organized. It seems we always have retail and restaurant coupons getting mixed in with our grocery coupons which becomes quite the headache. Now I have pockets for everything I need to sort which makes keeping them organized and finding them easier than ever. As if that isn’t enough, there are even 2 shopping pockets (Coupons to be used this shopping trip & Checkout) as well as a ‘coupons to expire this month’ pocket! I’ve only had it a short time and am already in love! Honestly, how did I go so long without it?!
Having its own place in The Couponizer booklet, there’s also a handy Shopping List pad with 20 tear off sheets/cardboard backing and a CoupTracker pad which has 15 tear off sheets/cardboard backing for record spending and savings by store. I love that these things are right there easily found in the booklet no matter where I’m at.
Of course, keeping everything together is very important, which is why the icing on the cake is the clear zippered vinyl carrying bag. I can put everything in the bag so it’s it’s easy to find and keep together when not in use. In my efforts to be be more organized in the New Year, this has definitely been a big help.
Overall, I have been very impressed with The Couponizer and feel it’s a great product for beginners and seasoned couponers alike. This system is designed to provide order, structure, efficiency and support for organizing and shopping with coupons and other discounts. It increases conficence and consistency when using coupons which means higher and more frequent savings… something all busy moms appreciate. If you’ve never checked out The Couponizer, I’d definitely recommend it.
