Tips To Keep Your Coupon File Box Organized:

  1. P&G Coupon inserts expire almost monthly. Keep a separate file for them so you don’t have to think through the date they came in the newspaper and you can simply pull out the old one and replace it when a new one comes!
  2. Dollar General puts their 2-page weekly ad flyer inside the SmartSource Coupon insert. It is only good for the week in which it comes in the insert. To save space, pull those sheets out of the insert get rid of it right away! No need to let it take up valuable space!

Send your expired coupons to the Military!

If you have been couponing for a while now, you are probably accumulating some great expired coupons. Don’t you just hate to toss them? Well, you don’t have to!

Military families outside the USA can use your expired coupons! The Commissaries on military bases outside of the USA (which excludes Hawaii and Alaska) will accept manufacturer coupons up to 6 months past their expiration date.

They can use manufacturer coupons only, no store coupons are accepted (so don’t included the extra Purple or Green Flyers from Publix).

Here’s how to send them to them:

True Couponing supports the Coups For Troups Website for helping to get Expired Coupons over to our Military.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Get a Priority Mail flat rate envelope or box and pack it as full as you can.  It is the same postage rate to ship to an overseas APO/FPO address is within the USA.  A box takes roughly 3-4 weeks to arrive to an overseas APO/FPO address. An standard envelope takes roughly a week.envelope or “flat rate” box from your local post office to put all your coupons inside. Priority Mail Boxes and Envelopes are provided for free from USPS, standard domestic rates apply when you mail to an APO or FPO address.
  2. Choose a Satellite Location to mail your coupons to, or choose an individual family to mail them directly! (If you choose to mail to a family, it is best to mail them out monthly because they are counting on your coupons!)
  3. No sorting of the manufacturer coupons is necessary! You don’t even have to cut them. Just load them in your package and get them shipped out asap. Even if you have some expired coupons mixed in with the non-expired ones that is fine too. They will use the ones that are not expired.
