Editor's Choice: Galison

As the stationery editor at one of Fancy Food’s sister publications, Giftware News, I constantly receive samples of the latest designs in greeting cards, note sets and other related items. Although many of the samples in my storage cabinet admittedly go unused (because honestly, I never plan on sending a birthday card with a giant cat on the front), I did receive one item in particular that I brought home and put to use right away. I immediately saw the utility in this product, and I have no doubt that it will be a saving grace for many of your customers.

Accordion organizers from Galison, a company known for its trend-forward stationery and office accessories, are the ideal solution for savvy shoppers who are currently clipping coupons to save money on groceries and other household items. These miniature books, which retail for less than $10 each, are portable filing systems that include six divider pockets to store coupons and ads; a notepad and an elastic pencil holder are also included inside, which makes it easy to keep grocery lists and menu plans on hand while shopping.

What’s even more exiting is that the hardcover organizers come in colorful patterns and designs from an array of famous artists (the organizer shown is a classic Andy Warhol option; the spine of the book even features a Warhol quotation). No longer do shoppers have to use boring, bland or flimsy plastic organizers; these sturdy little books truly bring a sense of style to the newly trendy frugal lifestyle.
