Very pleased with set, it has been used many times since receiving. The only downfall for me is the sorting mat sections are a tad small for the large coupons we have here.

Could be a lot better March 4 2010
By M. Hines - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound
The Couponizer essentially consists of:
1) a ringed notebook with pockets for different coupons. The various pockets are prelabeled (e.g. baby, meats, frozen foods, pets, etc.)
2) Two sets of pads, 1 shopping list pad and 1 coupon savings total pad
3) a zippered plastic bag to store the notebook
4) a pair of scissors
5) a folded up "coupon mat", when unfolded, has marked sections that are the same as the notebook pocket names.

The basic idea is you spread out the coupon mat when going through coupons, and pile each coupon you cut out on its appropriate location on the mat. When you are finished clipping coupons, you then place each set of coupons in its notebook section.

The idea is pretty good, but there are two things I don't like about the system:
1) You can't change the pocket names (and corresponding coupon mat names). I don't have any pets nor babies which are just two examples of pockets I really can't use. What would be better is if there was a way you could create your own pocket/coupon categories
2) the notebook and zippered plastic bag are pretty flimsy. I don't take it to the store due to fear of tearing it.

Makes me want to use coupons! Nov. 16 2008
By working it... - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
This little item seems like overkill. Once I had it in my hands, I realized what all the hype was! Having things so organized makes you want to do it even more. The grab and go aspect is great with the scissors etc; included. I can even work on things while waiting in the car for my kids (which is quite often). All in all, I am quite pleased. It is such a simple item, but well thought out and executed.

Great organizer March 11 2009
By P. Schuler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
I bought this even though I thought it pricey for a coupon book (I regularly used the mini file sorters you get at the dollar store) - because of the other reviews I read at Amazon. I knew I'd love it - and, no surprise, I do. My only complaint is that it could be made of something a little sturdier - it is already getting bent around the corners. However I love the extra categories and that they are all alphabetized - it makes using the coup stacker unnecessary. My shopping trip is now a little less awkward and it goes quicker at the checkout counter. The slots for "coupons to use this shopping trip" "coupons expiring this month" and "checkout" really come in handy. Overall - I'm very glad I bought it.

Good ideas, badly executed. March 16 2011
By E. Muse - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
I have been thinking about getting this for over a year and finally took the plunge last week. I was really looking forward to it - and I am so disappointed. There were a lot of good ideas but I think they are poorly executed.

First of all - the book is too big but doesn't hold much. You can't fit it in most purses which means I may not always have it with me when its convenient to get to the store. I have had it for less than a week and it's already overfilled and looks bursting. The folders are nice to use but make the book lopsided, thicker on the bottom.

The categories aren't customizable which means the first one is "baby" whether you need it or not. Customizable stickers would have been an easy and thoughtful idea. Also there is a "coupons that expire this month" pocket which I find useless since most of the coupons I use expire in a month or two and then they wouldn't be filed by category anymore. I consider it a "coupons that expire in the next ten days" pocket.

I like the pockets for "coupons to use on this trip" and "checkout" but I had already been doing that with my cheap plastic, smaller card file. I didn't get anything extra out of this and feel that I wasted $20 and didn't improve my system at all.

Updating my review to one star and DO NOT BUY Feb. 1 2011
By Brenda - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
This is a great organizing product; the best coupon organizer I've ever used. The problem is it doesn't last long. My first one, the covers fell off. I ordered my second one through amazon on 1-7-10. I was pleased to see the covers were made of plastic, not paper, and there was an attached elastic to keep the book closed. However, less than 13 months after I ordered it, the back cover fell off yesterday (1-31-11). I'm debating on whether to order another one or just make do.

Update 9/21/11: I emailed the company in February after I wrote this review and they never responded. The elastic mentioned above broke; I used my own rubber band and made do until finally this July 2011 I broke down and ordered another one. It's coming apart already! This is not overstuffed; I don't even use any of the pockets in the back half of the book. This time the rings are separating so the pages are coming loose. The rings are not really rings at all; the wires are closed loops bent to meet in the middle. If they were closed loops this wouldn't happen. I just bought a pocket organizer at Target and am going to make my own.
