Get your Fashion On With A Savvycents Wallet ~Review and Giveaway


When it comes to keeping up with receipts and coupon clippings, I’d be the first to tell you I’m not all that organized.  I have a real bad habit of just stuffing things  right into my purse and can never find it later when I need it.  Do you have that same problem?  If so, I just might have a solution for you.  Recently, I had the opportunity to try out the Savvycents wallet made for us Fashionable Moms. That’s right, “fashionable!”  Who says we can’t be Frugal and Fashionable all at the same time?

 About the Savvy Cents Wallet:

The Savvycents wallet is not only functional but also fashionable. It contains everything you need to organize your monthly or weekly budget using a cash system. With an accordion style file system inside the wallet you can separate money and/or coupons by categories. Your wallet comes with file cards where you can label each category with our pre-printed labels. There are also blank labels where you can customize your wallet based on your personal categories. You no longer have to carry envelopes to separate your money and deal with loose change in the envelopes. A coin pocket is located on the backside of the wallet. 

 It also has 6 pockets for debit cards and store discount cards. On the opposite side there is a place for your driver’s license and a place for your checkbook.



Melinda Claudepierre – President and creator of Savvycents had the right idea in mind.  Frustrated with the 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 driver’s license, coin holder, and all of her discount cards and coupons.

I can totally relate.  Prior to using the Savvycents wallet, my purse was always a mess.  Finding a wallet that would help keep me organized and allow quick access to the things I use the most was thrilling.  Yeah, the smallest of things get me excited, lol.  It’s also very attractive which gets a big thumbs up!

The Savvycents Wallets is great in that it can be used in many ways.  Although Melinda’s initial intent was to create a wallet for use with cash envelope budgeting system.  It is perfect for the everyday mama or couponer.  Since the wallet has 5 separate sections, you can label them with the pre-printed labels it comes with or create your own.   You can label them with your favorite store or different shopping categories-your choice.  In my opinion, you can’t go wrong with the savvycents wallet and I’ve found myself using it everyday.  It’s about the same size of my old wallet and fit perfectly into my bag. 

 Buy It

The SavvyCents wallet is available for purchase at for $24.99.   Right now you have a choice of black or red patent leather.   Be sure to keep an eye out because the pink patent leather wallet will be available real soon.

    I really love this wallet! I like to have all my coupons with me and this is a great option since it zips closed! My current one is too bulky and doesn’t zip so coupons come out! I love the red!!

  6. Tari Lawson says:

    I would love to win this so I could keep my grocery coupons with me at all times. I can’t tell you how many times I have run into the grocery store to pick up one or two things and have seen some good sales and come out with more only to find that I had coupons at home for many of the items and I could have saved even more.

  7. Charlotte says:

    I’d use the Savvycents wallet for coupons. Money is tight these days, and I haven’t used coupons in the past because I have nothing to store them in. If I won this wallet I couldn’t use that excuse anymore! Coupons can really save you money.

  8. Rebecca says:

    I would totally use this for my envelope budget system! I would love red or pink… It looks so useful!

  9. Kerry Wali says:

  27. Diane R. says:

    It seems so practical. There is a place for everything. Right now I am carrying a wallet and a leather file for cards and coupons. I could get rid of both and use this one for everything–shopping, travel, etc.

  28. Melissa Sanford says:

    Savvy cents wallet is what im after! I WANT the pink one and I want it now!! Haha.. Oh my gosh this is exactly what I need. Forget using it for coupons im going to use it for my cash and carry lifestyle. Currently my family is using the envelope system, but it is starting to fall apart, dosn’t have all the nooks and crannies I need and want. Oh and NOT fashionable at all. This is exactly what I dreamed up in my head and being shopping around for for EVER and finally someone got it right!! That is why I would L-O-V-E to get this, and winning it would be even more fun since im on a budget!!

  29. Lori hart says:

  31. Katherine says:

    I would use it for coupons & as my wallet all in one! I can put my checkbook on one side along with my store discount cards & my coupons along with my $$$ on the other side!! It would work perfect!!! It’s just what I have been looking for and it zips up so nothing would fall out unlike other options I have found in the past!!! :-) I would love to win this much needed wallet!!! Times are tough in these economic times and winning it would be great considering I’m on a tight budget. Thanks for this wonderful giveaway!

  36. Great idea! Perfect for storing coupons and loyalty cards.

  37. Jenn S. says:

    I would use it for everything! I always forget my coupons and have an awfully ugly coupon carrier. With this wallet, I’d never forget my coupons and it looks great!

  38. barbara wright says:

    I would love this so I could separate gift cards from coupons from loyalty cards from regular credit cards. My old purse had lots of small zippered pockets. My current purse has BIG zippered pockets and I just can’t make them work for what I need.

  49. Shilo Beedy says:

    I have been wanting a new wallet and this would help me stay organized. I would actually have a place for my change instead of the bottom of my purse. I also would have a place for my coupons, money, and my cards.

    I would like to win this because I am the most disorganized person on the face of the earth. Maybe I could keep my receipts all together so I can make sure I get everything entered in my checkbook.

  72. Heather C says:

    I’d love this since I always use coupons. It would help having them organized, rather than throughout my purse!
