Send Your Expired Coupons to Overseas Military Families

I wrote  a post about sending expired coupons to overseas troops last year.

Yesterday a reader asked on Facebook if I knew where to send expired coupons, I double checked the links before I sent her to the old post. To my surprise (and delight) that program actually has a waiting list to donate!

So I did a little more research and found the Overseas Coupon Project You can pick an overseas base to “adopt” then just send them all your expired coupons in a priority mail envelope (you will not pay overseas shipping).  You can see some more mailing hints here.

Another program to check out is the Military Family Coupon Project.

The prices in overseas commissaries are significantly higher than those in the States and military families do not always have access to coupons in newspapers and inserts. Military commissaries overseas accept coupons up to six months past the expiration date.

This is a great way to help those families that serve our country! It would also be a great idea for your club or group to get involved in! At one of your meetings you could all get together and chat while you clip.

Happy 2011

Happy New Year!

Today is a rainy day and we are all recovering from a severe stomach bug around here so I decided to postpone my goal setting post until later.

Instead I cleaned out my coupon binder and organized all my coupons. This is a picture of our office floor when I was almost done. It feels good to be prepared for shopping in 2011. I considered changing my coupon organization this year but am sticking to my trusty binder.

How about you? Do you like your current coupon organization system? Are you considering changing?
