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’d use it for my coupons. It would be nice to carry a wallet instead of the paper envelopes all the time.

    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.

  22. Heather C says:

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