13-Pocket Coupon File
Way to box us into a corner
You'll probably agree that it takes a certain type of person to cut coupons, much less want to organize them.
Given that particular personality trait, you'd think that a coupon file with two rows of 6 different-colored tabs would include 12 stickers in those 6 colors.
You'd be wrong.
You get two rows of 5 different-colored tabs, and 2 colors are repeated. This means that the color of the tab and the color of the divider (mostly) match in the first row, but don't look at the second row. It's not pretty. If you decide to use the calendar month tabs instead, the tab and divider colors will not match from the get-go. Yuck.
The two provided labeling options (alphabet and calendar month) aren't ideal, either. A good alternative would have been to provide blank, white tabs that we could label ourselves.
Maybe they're trying to sell a label maker too ...

I found this little file to be very handy! It's advertised for storing coupons but I use it for storing receipts and when I have to run errands for returning/exchanging things it fits very nicely into my tall tote bag. It also comes with stickers so you can designate the tabs in chronological (January, February, etc.) or alphabetical order. My only (superficial) problem is that there are only thirteen file slots and 12 tabs so the tabs correspond to three or two letters of the alphabet (A, B, CD, EF, GHI, etc.) and since this is how I organize my receipts for quick retrieval, some tabs hold a lot more than others. Therefore, I'd like to see a version of this product with a few more tabs (maybe 20). I'd also appreciate a smaller version of this that would fit into my smaller purses. But overall I make very good use of it so I recommend it to any potential buyers.

Need better labels
Like many other reviews I can't understand why a coupon file would not have labels geared for coupons. You need labels that pertain to grocery items not the alphabet.

What a classy upgrade from my ziplock bag! No more standing at the check out shuffling through a pile of coupons and vouchers to find the one I need. Now everything is organized in a perfect purse-sized file that keeps dollar-saving offers and deals at my finger tips!
