my coupon holder

this is my stylin binder 
my niece made this for me one Christmas about two or three years ago and made me cry.
she knows I am serious about couponing
and found the pattern online
she made both me and my sister one

it uses a 3 ring binder base with baseball card type inserts
that the coupons go into
I place this in the cart and as I go down the aisles I turn to the section of food in my book such as frozen food for example.
 now even if I didnt know about a sale, I can compare prices and know which deal is better. I may have a coupon on one that is not on sale that is a better deal than the sale one

I LOVE LOVE LOVE when my love of sewing rubs off on people that I love and cherish
I think the binders are called stylin binders if you want to make one

when the velcro flaps are in, it looks like a purse with handles that you can carry
inside she made me a pocket for a pen and a list and the coupons that I am using so I just pull them out at the end of my grocery trip

smart cookie she is!

Lovely binder. I have to admit I don't coupon shop anymore - I found I was spending more time messing with bits of paper - that usually scattered all over the floor then I was shopping.
