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.

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.

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

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*
