Don’t 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 websites for information on how and where to send your coupons.
- Military Family Coupon Project
- Overseas Coupon Program
Tips for organizing your expired coupons:
- Cut the coupons. Don’t send the whole insert with all the junk pages! This will also reduce your postage costs.
- Divide the coupons into 2 plastic bags: Food and Non-Food.
- Don’t send Internet coupons. Families overseas already have access to these.
