WFMW- Expiring coupons
Around the beginning of each month I go through my coupons to weed out expiring coupons. I pull out the ones that will be expiring for that month and put them into a business size envelope. I then make a list of the items that are either a high value coupon or a coupon that when doubled would be a good deal. I also note items that are for basic products that we would need to buy anyway. This leaves a lot of coupons that I do not note on my list. They are things that I would only buy as a money maker or if almost free, not my normal products to buy. Then, I take this list and envelope shopping and from the list check prices at the stores when I shop. Since they are expiring I am trying to benefit from the coupon, but only if it is a good deal. At the end of the month all the coupons that you didn't use are already in an envelope to send to overseas military. Overseas military bases allow members to use expired coupons, so they love to get them.
