DON’T THROW THEM AWAY!
If you’ve come to a workshop you already have one reason to keep your expired coupons! But, what about those products you just know you’ll never buy no matter HOW low the prices go?
Save them to send to military families overseas. Families stationed at bases outside the US can use expired coupons in the Commissary for up to six months past their expiration date. It requires considerable resources to move your family to another country and as you can imagine, there are only so many things you can ship (especially when you are restricted to a certain capacity limit). Many families have to restock their kitchens completely.
We are working with a fellow blogger who happens to be a military wife! She is coordinating a collection of expired coupons and will handle shipment once we get them to her. If you are interested in reading more information about this please check the website for “The Overseas Coupon Project” http://www.ocpnet.org/. Please contact us directly if you’d like to participate!
