New Coupon Organizer

By June 23, 2009Frugal Living, Organizing

Well, hopefully the third time is a charm with this coupon organizer.  I started with this organizer.

I quickly out grew that one, and I decided to try putting them in envelopes in a plastic box.

Well, this didn’t work either, the box was too short, didn’t have a lid and the envelopes were too flimsy.

So, I started searching for the perfect container, and found one that I hope will be better at Walmart. And it was only $1.50!

I had some large square envelopes that I found in my stash, they fit in the container perfectly.

The first two organizers I had were functioning, but not very pretty. I wanted this one to be functioning but also pretty.

I dug through the paper that I had leftover from covering the containers and in my stash.

I laid the envelope on the paper and traced around it. Then cut it out leaving about 1/4 inch extra.

Then I mitered the corners on the bottom to make a clean fold.

I glued each of the sides on

Then on the top edge, I cut the flap off, cut the corner at an angle and glued it down.

And the finished envelope

Then I printed off the categories for each envelope, glued them onto a piece of cardstock and taped them onto the envelope.

I’m excited about taking my new coupon organizer to the store with me, I think I might have a few women ask me about it. Not only am I saving money by using the coupons, but I only spent $1.50 for the container, all of the other supplies, I had on hand.
