(My 10K recap is coming but I have to get the pictures from Allan and that would mean actually seeing him which won't happen until tomorrow but I promise it will be a good one!)
Giving back is something very important to us and one way we never thought about giving back was sending our extra coupons overseas to where our military and their families are calling home while serving their country. Overseas Coupon Program gives you an opportunity to sponsor a location to send your coupons to. If you don't think you have enough coupons yourself to send then consider getting a group of friends together and combining your coupons.
Military families are able to use coupons that are up to six months expired. OCP recommends not sending coupons more than two months expired in order to allow time for the coupons to arrive, be sorted, and distributed to those who need them. I didn't take their recommendation because I'm that OCD lady that already had the coupons in envelopes sorted by month and then sorted by food and non-food. I'm pretty sure this will drastically cut down on the time it takes them to organize and distribute. Plus I'd rather send them and have them not need them then us throw them away here and someone miss out on using them.
We are sponsoring an Army base in Germany and it's our hope that these families know we appreciate their sacrifice and are grateful for their service. If you are a coupon clipper or know someone who is please let them know not to toss their unused coupons!
Do you use coupons?
