Couponing for the Rest of Us

Send Expired Coupons to Military Families!

Did you know that expired coupons aren’t trash? It’s true!

Military families are allowed to use coupons up to 6 months past their printed expiration date! While the service pay rates are no longer below the poverty level, they are in no way great when you have a family. Can you imagine what a blessing it would be to receive a bundle of valuable coupons from someone back home – and realizing they cared enough to send them?

If you are interested in dropping off coupons to be sent to military families, you’ll be happy to hear that locally, the Dupont Community Credit Union has kindly volunteered each of their branches to be a drop-off point for unused and expired coupons destined for the military.  You can click on the image below to read more about the program and see the dropoff locations:

If you don’t live near a Dupont Community Credit Union you can connect on Facebook to Coups for Troops to find out more information.   Or check out the list of Military Base Volunteers here on Expires Coupons for Overseas Military.

 

Or you can also mail the coupons to the address below.

Military Families at:Brooke Seigrist, Family Services Coordinator
48 FSS/FSFR
Unit 5200, Box 105
APO, AE 09461

Phone – 011-44-1638-522641

Questions? Email – lakenheathloanlocker@googlemail.com

NOTE: Please don’t drop off coupons expired PAST the 6 month limit, or the military base personnel will be forced to sort through huge boxes of unsorted coupons to find usable ones.  Please send coupons that are just recently expired, and if you have time – tuck them into envelopes sorted by categories (i.e. Food, Baby, Household Cleaners, Toiletries, Pets….)  Thanks!!

My family loves all things pumpkin! I’m always looking for healthy breakfast recipes to try out, I thought pumpkin and oatmeal would make the perfect combination.

Saving Money Tips: Eat at Home – The 10-Minute Trick

Saving Money Tips

Saving Money Tips

Several years ago, we ate out almost every meal.  After my family was faced with a job loss and multiple mortgages from spec homes not selling we had to make some changes. Otherwise, all the money I was saving on groceries would have been worthless.

I found that taking a couple of steps to prepare ahead of time, mealtime was much less daunting.  By cooking and freezing ground beef/turkey or chicken ahead of time you’ll cut down meal preparation time significantly.  I call it the The Ten Minute Trick – grab a zip-lock bag of precooked ground beef/turkey or chicken out of the freezer, pop it in the microwave for a minute to thaw then add to your favorite recipe.
