Wait….do NOT toss those expired coupons in the trash. If you took the time to clip and organize your coupons, but just didn’t have time or an opportunity to use them before they expired, you can still put them to good use. U.S. military families stationed overseas are able to use coupons on base for up to SIX MONTHS after the manufacturer’s expiration date! So start collecting those expired coupons and check out the following web-sites for information on how and where to send your coupons…
Tips for organizing your expired coupons:
(1) Be sure to cut the coupons (i.e. do not send the whole insert with all the junk pages); this will help reduce the postage costs for you
(2) Divide the coupons into 2 plastic bags with the following labels: Food and Non-Food
(3) Do not send internet coupons as families overseas already have access to these coupons
