My Coupon Box

My Coupon Box! I just decided yesterday that I needed one after digging thru my coupon drawer to see if I had a coupon for toilet paper. =)

Its just a simple index card box that I had laying around here. I saw several cute ones on Etsy HERE BUT this is all about saving money, so going out and spending $14 on a cute little coupon organizer would kind of defeat that purpose when this plain, ol' boring black box will do.....sigh.... =) Maybe I can bedazzle it....

I made the little dividers and tabs out of spare cardstock I had here that my mom gave me leftover from her work. Aren't they fancy? I would be willing to make you some for the small fee of $10. Or a Dairy Queen Blizzard.
I cant decide if I should take this to the store with me JUST incase I see an unadvertised deal, or if I should just take the coup's that I know I will need for that trip.
I have NEVER seen anyone walk around Wal-Mart with a coupon box/binder or bag, so I fear that I will stick out like a weirdo
Actually, it IS Wal-Mart, so I suppose I'll blend right in...


  1. Love it!!! I am always trying to trim out budget especially the grocery area!!! Looking forward to the tips that we can share/ learn from each other.

  2. When I try to cut coupons I put them in an envelope in my purse, and then forget them at checkout time! lol Maybe bringing the little black box with me will remind me of them! BTW, if you bedazzle it, it'll be totally original. No one else in the world will have a coupon box like yours! (Although just the thought of it reminds me of the movie Game

  3. I agree, Tammy. If I BeDazzle my box and then BeDazzle me a jean jacket to match, and then tease my hair and put on some rolled cuff jeans. I would be one STYLIN' Walmart shopper.
