I had a great question from one of my budget saving readers, and I don’t think that I have addressed this before. She wanted to know how you donate your expired coupons to the military.
You can go here. There you can adopt a base. You will see little comments on the side saying “Yes, please adopt us!” They will accept coupons for military and families who are serving overseas. Once you adopt a base, you just mail off your coupons that are expired. They would like to receive coupons that are only 2 months expired even though they can be used longer than that. The reason they only want ones that are 2 months or less past their expiration date is because it does take time for them to be sorted and received.
Once you select your base, just e-mail using the link at the top right of the page with this information per their website:
Your Mailing Address
Your e-mail address
Your Phone Number
Any organization you may represent
The name of the base being adopted
Thank you so much to the reader who asked that question. I think it is great that we can give back in a small way to those that are serving our country.
