Finally, I am posting my coupon box categories. If you haven’t watched my video on my coupon box, make sure you go here to see it.

  • Laura A. -

    Thanks for the list, Carrie. I like having so many categories…I’m a little OCD!

  • Sandi -

    Should make quicker work of our shopping trips. Keep the organizaional tips coming. So glad you are obsessed with organization. Thanks Carrie

  • Jonni -

    I will be attending your class at the WA Library tomorrow evening. My daughter tells me you have an envelope system already made up. Could you please tell me if they come prelabeled? Thank you.

  • Megan H. -

    Thank you so much for your list! I copied and pasted right into my word processing program and upped the font a little. Then I printed the list out and made labels for my box. Worked like a charm! I even made it into a PDF version so I can make boxes for my mom and S-I-L and if I need to remake my box I can!

    I was introduced to your website by my sister-in-law. She took one of your classes in Oklahoma and passed on what she learned to me. I love the “envelopes” that you sell and have already purchased 70. I live in the Houston area and have looked for classes here and have only found ones that are 2 hours away from me. I am strongly considering contacting local churchs and offering classes in my area. I would like to know if you would consider selling your product wholesale so that I may put together boxes for purchase at each class. I am not interested in marking your product up and would give you full credit for the items.

    I am also personally interested in additional green colored envelopes for my own box. Are these available?

    Thanks for a great product.

    Another tip is to paperclip all of your “like” coupons before putting them into the envolopes. I started doing this when I get lots of multiples. Makes it very easy when taking out the out of date ones also.
