What to do with expired coupons?? Send to the Armed Forces

It is the beginning of a new month and I was cleaning out my coupons. I hated to throw them all away so I went looking for something that could be done with them. I found that we can send them overseas to the Armed Forces. The families overseas can use them on base for up to six months past the manufactures expiration date. The website has an updated list of the addresses of the bases overseas that accepts the expired coupons.

They ask that the coupons be divided into months that they expire so they will know which ones they need to give out first and give divide them into Food and Non Food categories. I think this is a great way to help the families of our troops. I hated throwing away coupons that had expired and now we don't have to.

Another note they can only accept manufacture coupons, no Internet or in store coupons.
