Coupons for the Troops

Looking for something to do with your expired coupons? Send them to the troops!

It’s almost the end of the month and that means we have a ton of expired coupons to get rid of.

american-flag-2aDon’t worry about having expired coupons, it means you played the game right.  You didn’t run out and grab something that wasn’t on sale.  You waited and the sale didn’t come, but we’ll see those coupons again.  In the mean time it’s time to send your coupons onto a better place…

Send them to those who sacrifice for us everyday: our troops around the world.  The military and their families are able to use manufacturer coupons up to 6 months after their expiration dates at their Commissaries if they are stationed abroad. There are a lot of bases that can use these coupons.

How do you get started::
Honestly the easiest way for you to get started is to pick a base.  Then check out their mailing hints and tips.  You send these straight to the base you pick in a priority mail envelope (you don’t have to pay overseas shipping!).

Note:  This site has a great list and tips but you don’t really need to inform them that you are adopting a base or tally anything and send it in.  The more work you put on yourself the least likely you are going to stick with it.  Just shove them in an envelope and head to the post office!!

What are you waiting for::
Grab all your coupons that are expiring 7/30 then round up a few friends and send them over.  This is a great thing to do once a month.  Have coffee together, chat and package coupons!

If in the past you were mailing your coupons straight to me, I have to kindly ask that you now start to send them yourself.  Things got a little out of hand and I don’t really have time to process all of this :)
