Did you know that US military families that are stationed overseas can use coupons at the commissaries for up to six months after their expiration date?
NEITHER DID I!?!?!?!
I didn't know that nor did I ever think about passing my expired coupons along until I came upon that fact on a couponing website. I always just tossed them in the recycling can at work.
So the site I came across gave a general address to send bulk coupons to that in turn sends the coupons along. After sending a couple packs of coupons collected between myself and other couponing coworkers I received a letter from Coups for Troops which is where I was sending the packages. They offered to set us up directly with an overseas military family. YAY!!!! Through email contact I am now so excited to say that I am connected with a military family and get to start TODAY sending our expired/ unused coupons direct to her.
So if you coupon and want something to do with your expired and/ or unused coupons please go to the Coups for Troops website and learn more.
All it costs you is a little postage. You're helping a fellow Americanto make grocery costs a little more manageable and you can smile all the way to the post office knowing that you are doing some good.
