Expired Coupons: What Do You Do With Them?

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my full disclosure policy for details.

It is the end of the month and you find that your coupon stash resembles this photo – right?  Well, what do you do with these?  Do you drop them into the recycling bin or trash can?  I  have a better idea – why not share them with our military families who live overseas?

Military families who live across our oceans can use these coupons for up to 3 or more months AFTER the expire here in the states.   This is certainly a great way to support the members of our armed forces by helping their families save money just like we do.

There is a great webiste that you can visit to learn how to get started.  It is called Overseas Coupon Program.  They have all of the information you will need to get your expired coupons into the hands of people who can use them!

I am going to post this information for everyone around the first of every month so that you don’t forget to do this!

Thanks Nikki!

    I usually send them to my sister who is Stationed in South Korea. I send her everything and what she can’t use she gives to othe families or leaves them on the shelves.

    I have done this a few times. It feels good to know that the coupons may help someone rather than going into the recycle bin. Here is a tip, “clean up” the coupons. Cut off the edges of the extra paper, it adds up and will save you on postage.
