Product Review: Mead Shopping Organizher

Back Story:

In my soon to be posted piece about Mead Flex Binders, I go on and on about their versatility. But I always wished for a smaller version. Well, playing around on the Mead website, I stumbled across the Mead Shopping Organizher.

I’m not gonna lie. I FREAKED! Yes, it was a two-ring binder, but I didn’t care about that. I had finally found what I wanted. My wonderful husband, when I was jumping up and down, handed me the credit card and said, “Order it.” Music to my ears.

When it finally arrived, my friend, Melanie, agreed to shoot the unboxing video.

Compared to the regular size Mead Flex Binder


“How to Use this Shopping List” Cardboard insert (that I’ll be using as a dashboard)

Pockets on both dividers



 Blank Shopping list sheets (30 in total)


Coupon dividers (removed all of them, except for the divider)

Website/Blog Username & Password log; Clear zipper pocket; Business Card sheet


I immediately tore it apart and reorganized it. I’m keeping the “how to use the shopping list” cardboard insert to use as a dashboard. I moved the card holder and zipper pouch to the front as well.

The Shopping List tab is staying the same, but I only kept three shopping list pages and the blog/website pages in this section.

The Coupons tab has been turned into a notes section. I removed the extra pocket dividers to make room for more paper. I already had a bunch of paper to fit this size notebook.


Moved the clear pockets to the front, behind the cardboard insert that is now a dashboard.


Moved the Website/Blog sheets to the Shopping List section


Added more paper. I had to washi tape the side and repunch them.


Current thickness of my refillable notebook.

A really nice discovery was that the two rings line up with the top and middle rings on a regular size Flex Binder. So what does this mean? I don’t need to buy a special hole punch!!! A standard size 3 hole punch will work just fine.

YES!!! Very happy! *happy dance*
