Coupon Clipping is Chic

We all know that the economy sucks in North America, yadda yadda yadda... After jumping on the greenwashing bandwagon, advertisers are now on the "spend less and buy this product" bandwagon. These are only some of the topics I hear about in my North American Consumer Culture course at school. A lot of the things we learn are pretty obvious once you think about it, but it's so obvious that sometimes you don't even realize it... if that makes any sense at all.

Once I'm on my own, I can see myself as one of those coupon chicks. Is it not cool to use a stack of coupons at the grocery store?? The amount of money I save with coupons can afford me to buy my boyfriend a combo at taco bell... or... buy myself an over the top sugary Booster Juice drink... or eventually a down payment on a house. Whatever it is people want to save money for, they seem to forget that 50 cents here and there can add up to A LOT!!

I found this REALLY cute coupon organizer off of Etsy. I know you can easily make one on your own... just buy some sort of portfolio thingy and write on the tabs the items you shop for the most, and voila!! But this particular coupon organizer is a stylish one and all the work is done for you. But yeah, in this situation you need to spend money to start saving money, but I know me... I have coupons ripped out of flyers and only God knows where I've put them. I could have used many of these coupons in the end.... thats why this little purchase could come in handy for someone who doesn't think coupons are stupid and isn't embarassed to use them.
Here are the divider headings:
*Canned Good, Frozen Foods and Soups
*Cereals and Breakfast Foods
*Cleaning Products
*Dairy Products and Meat
*Drug Items
*Flour, Meal,and Baking Products
*New Products
*Paper Goods, Wraps, and Baby Products
*Pasta, Rices, and Helpers
*Sauces, Seasonings, Condiments, and Dressings
*Snacks, Pet Foods and Miscellaneous

I think the last section would have the most coupons for me.
