White Trash Coupon Holder

I'm really not a couponer.  I've tried and tried and tried, but it just doesn't happen.  I want to use my local grocery store coupons at least, and I was tired of losing them and dropping them, so I came up with this before I went to the store today.

At first I thought I'd just fold papers together in an accordion-style fashion.  Then I had a better idea.  I'd use the brochure from our rec. center for my foundation!

I folded the front cover in half -- down to the staples, then I folded and taped several of the pages down, but sticking up about a half an inch above the cover.  I pulled out a few excess pages in the center of the brochure.  Then I wrote my categories on each folded flap and cut away the excess paper to create tabs. 

It might be fun to print out the same idea on card stock, but I'll save that for another day.  I could even make a fabric cover -- or at least cover it with Contac paper. . . .  The possibilities are endless!! ;-)


  1. Duct Tape!

    I'm lousy at coupons, too... they don't give half-off coupons for bulk carrots!

  2. I'm not a couponer either . . . but I love this idea! I keep wanting to be a couponer. Perhaps we can try together, and perhaps fail together, but at least we'll be trying!
