With the month just starting I always have people asking me what to do with coupons they do not want or coupons that are expired. I published this information on my blog earlier last year just wanted to share this once again-

Military Coupon Program
Join Us in Operation Expiration
Overseas military bases will accept expired grocery coupons up to six months from their expiration date as well as non-expired coupons. We just recently learned of an overseas military base that needs coupons, and they have given us permission to share their information with you. For the cost of postage, you can help our military families save big every month!
PLEASE NOTE: Some people have been sending coupons that are expired PAST the 6 month limit, and the military base personnel are spending hours sorting through huge boxes of unsorted coupons to find usable coupons. Please send coupons that are only expired by a month or two, and sort them into categories to make it easier on everyone involved.

**PLEASE sort the coupons into categories before shipping them to Donna. The great news is that she’s getting lots of coupons and has sent out over 8 packages to military bases in only one month with your help! If you do send her coupons, please consider including $1 to help her defray the cost of postage. Thank you!
This is a really great program and I hope you all become involved. Items that usually get thrown away can be used! FYI If you don’t want to send these on your own I can send them for you just go here for more

1. I can use them! How?
