The biggest complaint I hear from couponers is that it can be difficult to get organized. Sure, you can purchase a binder, tabs and baseball card sleeves, but that can add up quickly in cost and sometimes, can take too much work to do. Enter — Coupon Possible Binder. A solution to organizing all of your coupons!
I recently had an opportunity to review one of these binders. I welcomed this chance to put it up against the binder I’ve been using for years (and years). While what I have been using works for me, if there is another option out there, which might work even better, I am definitely interested in giving it a try.
The very first thing I noticed about the binder was the size. Mine is a huge binder (regular size like kids would use at school). This Coupon Possible Binder is much smaller. In fact, it is only 8×10. I was a little skeptical at first because it was so small. I will freely admit that I actually like the size. It is so much less cumbersome than my larger one. It is more convenient to carry into the store. In fact, my handbag is large enough that I can even stand it up inside of it!!
If you are use to a binder zipping closed, such as me, you may raise an eyebrow and think that this could be a problem. I actually was hesitant for this reason because I do like mine to zip closed (usually because I slide additional blank pages into mine and my binder may pop open). I did use this without any problems of my coupons falling out nor the binder popping open. You will want to keep that in mind before you purchase (so you aren’t surprised when it arrives).
When I opened the binder, I noticed all of the accessories which came with it:
Each set includes:
- Five blank tabs (you can set up your own categories)
- Vinyl pouch (store all of your extras like a calculator)
- Double sided pages to store coupons
I absolutely LOVED the pages!!!! These ladies were really smart when they created this system. If you print coupons often and use the standard baseball card sleeve, you know you have to fold them to get them to fit. There are also times when the coupons in the weekly newspaper are large and you have to fold those too.
Just look at these!! There are sizes for all types of coupons, so you don’t have to fold your coupons to make them fit! How genius was this idea?
I have been using my Coupon Possible Binder for a couple of weeks. It has taken me a bit of getting use to (only because it is different). It is just so much easier for me to carry and the pages — I am just in love with those!!!
I am still able to open the binder right in my cart as usual. I can still find the coupons easily (sometimes even more quickly due to the page layout). I really am enjoying this binder and may even retire my big purple beast!!
If you don’t have a binder and want a good system, you might want to check these out. You can order a 3/4″ or a 1″ binder (with accessories) starting at $18.99. If you were to build a good binder yourself, you would absolutely pay more than that and the quality would not be as good as this one is.
