Savvycents Wallet Review and Giveaway


I will be the first one to confess my purse and wallet are a disaster area! I like to be able to keep all my gift cards and free product coupons with me at all times because I can’t always remember to take them with me when I go shopping so it’s best for me to keep them in my purse and/or wallet. But with that being said I have the worst time finding the gift card or coupon when I go to use them because they are just a jumbled mess in my purse! I recently ran across Savvycents Wallets and I thought this could be my solution to my messy purse and wallet problem!

About Savvycents (Taken From Website):

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.

About Savvycents Wallet (Also From Website):

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, coupons, receipts or store discount cards 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 or zip lock bags to separate your money and coupons. Your change will fit nicely in a coin pocket 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.

Wallet is 8” x 4”


My Thoughts:

I was lucky enough to get to review the Black Patent Leather Wallet from Savvycents! Like I said earlier I have a hard time keeping up with my gift cards and coupon Free’s so I dedicated this wallet to be my savers wallet and keep all my gift cards and free coupons in it to carry with me at all times.

The first thing I did was clean out my purse and main wallet and went to organizing all of my gift cards and coupons:

I used the pre-printed labels to label my file cards so that I could keep up with gift cards that wouldn’t fit in the slots (I have a large number of them) and also to keep up with my electronic gift certificate numbers so that I will have them no matter where I’m at.

I labeled one file card as Grocery where I keep all my free grocery item coupons. The next I labeled as Clothing so I could keep my gift cards and certificates that are for clothing stores and such. Next I made a file for Restaurants to keep all my gift certificates and coupons for different restaurants. I also make a file for Gifts which I use to keep my gift list for my family and friends birthday, Christmas and other special occasions. The last file I made was for Entertainment where I keep my gift cards for movie tickets and event tickets I’ve bought or won!


As you can see this is how my Savveycents wallet turned out once I got it all organized and I couldn’t be happier!! It took some time to get it all together but WOW, was it ever worth it! It not only keeps all my important cards and coupons in my purse but now I’m able to find them quick and easy when I need to use them!

Bottom Line:

I love my Savveycents black leather wallet I received for review and I truly recommend everyone grab you one of these super stylish and very functional wallets! I have never been happier with my free’s coupons and gift card organization as I am with this wallet! I wish I had found it a whole lot sooner, it’s not only made it more convenient to carry my frees and gift cards it’s seemed to save me some money having them at my fingertips when I shop because now I’m way more likely to use them since I don’t have to dig them out of my purse or other wallet!
