The school coupoon book practically dictates our dining out options for the following year. With so many restaurants offering deals in these books, I have to insist we at least try to select something from them when we go out. In fact, the thought that one of us can eat free or that we’ll get an appetizer thrown in is often my justification for going out in the first place.
That’s why it’s important that the coupon books be handy. It is hard to fully enjoy a meal knowing you’ve left a $10 entree sitting in a drawer at home in the form of a perforated slip of paper. A plastic envelope in the car will keep all your discount dining options accessible.
One of these document envelopes will hold a couple of coupon books as well as the Clipper Magazine, assorted Val-Pak slips, and direct mail pieces. It fits nicely in a seat pocket and is much easier to manage since the loose papers are always contained. You may even have space for a few favorite menus.
