What to do with all those coupons?!

No matter what stage your at in your coupon journey, beginner through an extreme couponer, you will always have expired coupons you didn't use or coupons you don't need. So what do you do with them??

Help our troops overseas!!

Our military members who are stationed overseas can use coupons for up to 6 months after they have expired! One of my FAVORITE blogs,  Living Paycheck 2 Paycheck, has adopted a base to give expired coupons to. Saving MoolaMindee has volunteered to take on the AMAZINGLY HUGE task of collecting, sorting and shipping. So if you have any expired/unwanted coupons please send them to:
*Mindee Rawson
21405 121st St. Ct. E.
Bonney Lake, WA.  98391
Here are the guidelines as to what is and is not accepted on the base:
  • Accepted: manufacturer’s coupons
  • Accepted: printable coupons
  • Not Accepted: manufacturer’s coupons for a Free item. Buy 1 Get 1 is ok.
  • Not Accepted: coupons only redeemable at a specific store (i.e., Target, Fred Meyers, etc)
  • Not Accepted: coupons that are more than 2 months past expiration date
  • Not Accepted: coupons for restaurants
  • Not Accepted: mail in rebate forms
**Before you send in your coupons, please sort them in food and non food groups. This will be a big time saver! Also please do not staple your coupons!**
In the month of May Living Paycheck 2 Paycheck collected was (are you ready for this) $13,987.35!!!! In the first month doing it!! Their goal for June is $20,000 - I'd love for all my Couponin' Mom readers to help reach this goal!!
