Donate Your Coupons to Military Families
I've mentioned a few times before that I've gotten in to couponing. The thrill of seeing our total go down at the grocery store is addicting! I always have too many coupons and I used to just throw extra, expired ones away. Then I started sprinkling them around our Target so other people could take advantage of the savings (I still do this, so if you go to our Target, you might get lucky one day!). But inevitably there are ones that don't make it on to store shelves before they expire.
A friend recently let me know that the military accepts expired coupons and there are a few organizations that collect and disperse them to different bases. Awesome, huh?!? My brother is a veteran so supporting the military is important to me. Even though there are tons of bigger ways to help, sending coupons is a super easy way we can all show our support. Even if you don't use coupons yourself you could still collect and send them to people who will use them.
Here's a list of different organizations where you can mail coupons. Each one has different guidelines for what you can send, so be sure to read up on what each one accepts.
