…you can send your expired coupons to military families overseas?  They are able to use coupons up to six months after they’ve expired.  Further, did you know there are a multitude of bloggers devoted to shipping YOUR expired coupons overseas?

Since the end of the month is nigh, now is a great time to clear out your expired coupons.  Check out some of my favorites, including  Mommy Coupon Swappers, Couponing 4 the Military, and Living on a Boot Band Budget (sucessfully!)  to learn more about this great way to pass on the savings!

AFM: Frugal Fun Fact Friday  10-21-11


Did you know…


…stores MAKE MONEY when you use a manufactures coupon.  If you read the fine print on a manufacture’s coupon, you’ll see that a store will not only be reimbursed the cost of the coupon, but will usually get an additional 8 cents per coupon for shipping and handling.  (The store pays for the “doubled” portion of a coupon, should they choose to double.)  So, go out and make your store some money, while you SAVE money in the process!  ;o)

P.S.  This only works when coupons are used ethically.

Ever wonder how to locate that coupon to go with that **hot** sale?  Don’t feel like sifting through your unclipped inserts, just to find a handful of coupons?  Just want to know if there’s a coupon to use with a certain product, perhaps to help build your stockpile, or to simply replenish it?  Then check out the Coupon Database, available through We Use Coupons!  It’s a great way to find printable coupons, as well as coupons already out there in circulation.

It will change the way you coupon, I swear!!  Also, don’t forget to check out the Trader’s Forum, which I told you about earlier today.  :o)
