Scrapbookaholic By Abby Challenge #2

Happy Monday Everyone! Welcome to another challenge with Scrapbookaholic By Abby. Challenge #2 is "Spring"! We had to design a project using "Spring" as the inspiration. I have had such Spring Fever lately... I have been Spring Cleaning and Organizing and spending lots of time outside.... I chose to make a project inspired by Spring Cleaning....
A Coupon Organizer!
I have started clipping coupons... it has always been half-hearted attempts in the past, but after seeing how much it can really save, I have put forth a little more effort. In all my Spring Cleaning I found my old day planner... I took out all the insides and made my own organizing system to put back in!
I have a pocket in front to put a calculator in or any other misc. items... and I made 12 dividers to help sort my different coupons. I have labeled most, but have some left blank to use later as my "system" evolves.
I cut regular notebook paper to size to put in my book to use for making my grocery list. This little book serves as a one stop for grocery shopping preparation! 
I found these fabulous little pockets at my local scrapbook store... they were perfect for holding my coupons in each divided section!
I hope that you have enjoyed my little project and make sure you go check out all of the other design team members projects! You can go HERE for the list of everyone's projects. You then can play along and post your project on to Abby's Blog!
