SavvyCents Wallet-Review and Giveaway!!




Savvycents-for the fashionably frugal! I love that motto :)  

"Savvycents was first formed in January of 2009 after Melinda Claudpierre read a book about becoming debt free and following the cash envelope system of budgeting. 
Frustrated with paper envelopes and disorganization with her wallet, she wanted to create a wallet that would allow her to keep her cash in separate categories and also give quick access to her drivers license, coin holder, and all of her discount cards and coupons. The Savvycents wallet allows you to have all these thing in an attractive wallet that every woman would love to carry. 
Melinda Claudepierre - President and creator of Savvycents is a stay-at-home mom of three kids and has been married to Jon for thirteen years. She is a former teacher."
I was sent the pink Savvycents Wallet for review, and I am very impressed! The wallet itself looks very stylish, and I love the bright pink color! (The wallet is also available in black for those who prefer something less eye-catching). There are plenty of pockets, more than my old wallet had. There are 6 pockets for debit cards, etc. and a driver's license/id card pocket. It is big enough to hold my checkbook, rather than having a separate cover for that. The coin pocket on the back means no more loose change jingling all over in my purse! 





The best part of the wallet, though, is the accordion-style file system to separate cash, coupons, receipts, etc. The wallet comes with pre-printed file labels, as well as a blank set so you can personalize your labels. (For example, I added one for my tithe and offering money so it can immediately be taken out. That way I don't end up spending money that should be going into the Church offering :). These work great to hold coupons, instead of trying to juggle my wallet, budget-book, coupon book, grocery store discount cards (seems like every grocery store has started using those!) and anything else I happen to need while shopping. And, the wallet looks perfectly fashionable while holding all these important items for me! This is definitely a great wallet!
Savvycents is giving a Wallet (winner's choice of color) to one of my readers!
