My first review and giveaway!!!!!!!!!

I am so excited to share this with you all.  It has been a long time coming but here it is!


Review of Coupon Magic Organizer and Giveaway!!!!!!



I am newish to couponing and got really excited when I saw the Coupon Magic Organizer system.  My old system consisted of one envelope with coupons I knew I was going to use and one with all the other coupons.  Not very efficient when shopping with 2 kiddos and not alot of time!  The Coupon Magic Organizer makes it so easy to keep all your coupons at your fingertips while shopping and not miss using any cause you couldn't find them, as was my problem always! 

When I saw this sytem I contacted Tania Mings, the brainchild behind this system, and asked her if I could review the Coupon Magic Organizer and she said yes! I was sent the Gold edition and jumped right in to reading all the tips she gives and stuffing my coupons in! I will admit in the beginning it did take some time to get it all organized and took me a little bit getting used to carrying it with me but it has been well worth it!  If I can do this with a teenager asking for everything, a 4yr old tugging on me and a 1 yr old trying to play with the binder, anyone can! 



The Coupon Magic System consists of (in my words):




 Color-Coded Dividers- these I use with my store pockets

 20 pages of 9-slot coupon pages (will hold 180 coupons)- love these cause I can see my coupons!

 3 Store Pockets- I use these to keep my coupons organized for the stores I go to

 3 pages of 3-slot coupon pages- I put my coupons that I know I am using and will expire soon in here

 Price Book (5 pages)- this helps me to keep up with prices so I know when I am getting a good deal

 Coupon Magic Organizer Meal Planner (12 pages)- as anyone who knows me knows I am terrible at this but I am working on it! 

 Coupon Magic Organizer Shopping List (12 pages)-  Love it! 

 Fourteen Page Instructional and Savings Guide-  there are so many helpful tips in here that I would have never thought of! 

2010 Coupon Insert schedule- a must have!



As I said earlier there are 2 editions the Silver (with everything included above) for $26.99 and the Gold (which comes with a binder) for $38.99 and that binder is a nice heavy duty one.  if you don't want all the bells and whistles but would like all her tips to making the most of your couponing, you can purchase the instructional manual download for $10.  In my opinion, all of the systems are worth every penny!   

All in all I love the system.  I may move it to a smaller binder so I can carry it with me all the time (even though it is in the van for all my shopping trips).  Other than that I LOVE it and it has saved me quite a bit of time and money which is what we all want!    

Now on to the good stuff!  Tania has graciously allowed me to give away a Silver edition organizer to one of my followers (just like Gold but without binder)! Trust me you won't know how you kept up with your shopping and coupons before this!  The contest will run from April 19th to May 4th.  Good luck!!!

I use a coupon binder to hold all of my coupons.

Hm, this is interesting. I currently have a clear zippered pouch that I keep all of my coupons in. I keep the food coupons towards the front and all other ones in the back. Obviously, not exactly efficient. I've been looking for a better way, but have yet to take the time to actually organize myself.

I cut my coupons and put them in a drawer. Then I close the drawer and forget about them:-(. When I do think to use them, I find what I'm looking for only to find out it's expired!!!

I clip and keep in a coupon pouch and always forget to bring them to the store. Then once a month I go through them.
I REALLY need a better way!!

My coupons are so un organized---piles in the backseat of the car, some in the living room (at least those are sorted by month) but I try to keep the whole insert.

Right now I have a coupon wallet, accordian style, to hold my coupons. It does make it hard to find coupons quickly!

My current method of coupon organization is a very cluttered, messy UNorganized binder that I have tried and tried to get in order to no avail :(

I use one of those coupon folders that Target sometimes sells for $1. They don't have enough tabs and can't contain all of my coupons, though.

I have one of those little coupon organizers that I have a hard time keeping my coupons organized. I miss coupons all the time especially when shopping with all 4 kids.

Carri said...

I have done all that was listed on your blog.

Currently, I use a 26 pocket file to store the inserts whole. Would be interested in trying this new system!
