12 Days of Thrifty Christmas: Coupon clipper or extreme couponer

thrifty-gift-coupon-clipper-extreme-couponerIf your friend is always snatching up great deals and stockpiling like the couponing pros, consider this thoughtful thrifty gift to help that couponing talent shine.

Gift

Thrift a shopping bag – a good sturdy one.  If it’s a blank canvas, personalize it with a cool design or their name / monogram.

This Marc Jacobs Fragrances bag would make a nice shopping bag for a couponer.

Give a stash of primo coupons from the Sunday paper or ones you scouted online.  Check out these sites for printable coupons:

If they are an aspiring couponer, thrift a nice binder for organizing coups.  You can go the extra mile by picking up some clear photo protector sheets in an office supply store – they are great for sorting those slippery pieces of paper.

This floral binder (originally from Target) was only 50 cents at Goodwill!

A decent pair of scissors is pretty cheap at any big box store.  Heavy duty ones, like the Rubbermaid pair pictured below, are great for cutting coupons out of cardboard (like those gems hidden inside of boxes.)

Heavy duty Rubbermaid scissors will tackle even the toughest coupons.

Wrapping

If you go the shopping bag route, it doubles as a wrapping.  Glue together expired coupons for a cool DIY collaged wrapping paper or tissue paper to stuff inside the shopping bag.
